My daughter's wanted a "Strawberry Shortcake" 4th birthday party, which is perfect theme for the summer months! My in-laws graciously offered up their backyard which has a pool (and is fabulous, especially for a parties.) Several weeks before the party, we decided we would also do an Alex's Lemonade Stand at the party to help raise money for cancer research in children. Miss T almost raised $500 and I am so very proud of my berry special girl!
The birthday girl!
Strawberry Shortcake of course for the birthday cake. Cupcakes, Cake Pops, Jello Push-pops, Fruit Salad, Choc. covered Marshmallows, and Apricot Bars.
Activities / Games
Water balloons, swimming, pin the jewel on the Strawberry Shortcake, and the pinata (or keyata as Miss T would say.)
Berry baskets filled with Strawberry Shortcake dry-erase door hangers, strawberry sunglasses, Strawberry Shortcake polish + lipgloss and strawberry bubbles for the girls. Berry baskets filled with strawberry bubbles, Strawberry Pop Rocks candy, and a parachute man.
Watching my sweet girl's face as everyone sang "happy birthday" to her.
