Lalaloopsy 4th Birthday Party

 Since it’s been the holiday season, I didn’t want to jump back in with a post about all that was pink, girly and Lalaloopsy until now. But, a few weeks ago we celebrated my daughter’s fourth birthday in grand style.

To give you a little background, this was her first ‘party’.  I said to someone the day of the party, I have thrown approximately 17 boy parties {My boys are 7 and 10 so think Star Wars, Army, Ninja Turtles, Transformers–you name it, we’ve done it}, but this was my first GIRL party so I may have gone a little over the top. It was a TON of fun to finally create something related to dolls, pink and totally girly, and I can definitely say she enjoyed her celebration too.

The theme of the party was not without much debate. During my last visit with Terry (who among her many talents is a professional event planner) together– with Pinterest– we planned a beautiful silver and white Snow/Winter Fairy party for her. That lasted about a day. Then my daughter decided she wanted a Hello Kitty party. Again, after much discussion and maybe a little hopeful persuasion from her mother, she finally settled on a Lalaloopsy theme for her big day.

Putting something together with the doll concept with buttons and sewing was too cute to pass up. I prefer to use mostly homemade items for parties, especially since I used to make and sell many of the party accessories such as you see in the photos.  I was really in for it when we {she} found LalaLoopsy party plates, cups, etc. at Wal-mart. So, again we compromised, and she got to set the table, which she did days in advance in her excitement.

I used generic white and pink cups, made stickers for them and filled them with popcorn and served the drinks in them. The straws were leftover from this Baby Shower we had last year.

The party was in the afternoon, so I didn’t do too much for food, just lots of snacks and sweet treats for the little girls to enjoy.

We did cupcakes, pink of course, with little toppers I made.

I knew I wanted to have a seat for each little girl, so we rented some extra chairs, a large round table and a white cloth. It made things so much easier to have everyone sitting instead of running wild, then we just packed it all up and returned it the next day.

I made the banner out of fabric scraps to hang above the buffet table; it’s been repurposed and now hangs over her bed in her room as a little reminder of her day.

We had a craft station set up in my office.  The girls made three different Christmas ornaments {under the supervision of some gracious middle schooler helpers} which of course, I don’t have pictures of to show, but it kept them busy and the ornaments served as their little “take home” gift.

 All in all I think the birthday girl had a ball!
