By now you’ve seen Sarah’s Doc McStuffins Birthday Party on Facebook so now here is a behind-the-scenes look at how it all came together!
The Venue & Setting Up
The previous years we’ve rented out a club house for her birthday party, but after what happened last year I decided Sarah needed less attention and more space. That’s also why we decided to make it a party just for her friends. We have a lot of loving family members, but with such a large mommy group we needed to split the celebrations.
This year the party was held at our favorite park. It’s gated and the bathroom was close by. Two requirements for a bunch of active 3 year olds.
I really tried to do a more relaxing birthday theme this year. However I still couldn’t help do some fun Pinterest things.
As you walked into the park you were greeted with a the “Doc is in” sign.
I once again bought a giant scene setter from Party City to take pictures of our friends. However, this time I only took a few pictures of our friends in front of the scene setter. Last year I managed to get all 24 guests in front of the scene setter!!
My friend Erin C once again made some really fun items that made the party come together.
This year my focus was a dessert table. I found a bunch of cute Doc McStuffins themed things on Pinterest that didn’t take to much time to put together.
Lambie Tails: small marshmallows
Toy Stuffing: cotton candy
Cotton Balls: big marshmallows
A Kiss for your Boo Boos: Hershey kisses
An Apple a Day, Keeps the Doc Away: apple slices
Band Aids: wafers with pink heart icing
Say Ah Pretzel Rods: pretzel rods
Chilly Juice: pink lemonade
Lunch included pizza and three different type of salads.
Cupcakes: vanilla and chocolate bases with colored (thanks to all the Easter/spring colors) frosting. To complete these cupcakes I added Doc and her friends to toothpicks and inserted them in random cupcakes.
Other then having the park to play with I made a check up station for the kids to give their toy a check up. Each guest was given their very own Big Book of Boo Boos to complete their toys check up.
I left early that morning to prep the park for the day, so hubby was in charge. Let’s just say Sarah was having one of her moody mornings and hubby was not interested in fighting the battle. Therefore Sarah came to the party dressed in a t-shirt and skirt (her back up outfit encase she got to hot/dirty in her birthday outfit)
Thank you to all of our friends for attending. We are so very blessed!
I also wanted to thank my wonderful friend, Liza for all the help and support. Love you mama!
It was great day! The park turned out to be a good choice. Most importantly Sarah had a lovely day! Happy 3rd birthday baby girl!
Until next year, the Doc is out.
