My daughter just turned five and hosted her first ever sleepover. She was so excited about all of the details for her very special 5th Birthday. The party was designed around grey and white chevron fabric I found and fell in love with.
What People Ate
After dress up the girls each got a chance to be their own chef, everyone was given a small ball of homemade pizza dough (by homemade I mean Publix Bakery....YUM!) they rolled it out into a shape of their choice ( we had circles, hearts, and moons) they added some of their favorite toppings and we popped them in the oven to bake. After pizza and games we helped the girls create their very own ice cream sundaes. They added fun toppings, there was lots of pink of course, and chocolate too! And once their sundaes were made they were ready to dive in with their adorable wooden chevron spoons.
What People Drank
Chevron straws looked adorable on the flavored water bottles, I purchase flavored water from Target for $1, peeled off the label and added some scrapbook paper to add some color, I attached the straws with bakers twine
The cake was designed to match the invites I designed. You can find them at Magic by Marcy A local friend here in town has a passion for creating these amazing cakes. She does such a fabulous job!
Kaitlyn helped with all of the planning she chose what things she wanted to do at her party as well as what favors her guest would receive. She wanted all of her little friends to have pajamas for the party so we picked out some fabric and enlisted the grandmas and their sewing machines. My mom Grandma DD made the pants, and Miss K and I ironed on the initials for the shirts, Grandma J embroidered around each one giving them a finished look for a lot less that traditional monogramming. To make shirts like this use iron on adhesive, cut out your shape and letter then use the iron to adhere them to a shirt. The embroidery around the letters help them to stay in place without fraying. The girls looked so adorable in the matching pajamas. Each of her little guest received custom PJ's as their favor, the colors were so bright and fun and looked adorable on everyone.
Activities / Games
