We had no plans to throw Miss Sarah a 6th birthday party this year. After all a Disneyland vacation was her birthday “party”. But after we attended a few birthday parties from kids in our neighborhood, Sarah really wanted a party too. We compromised and organized a small neighborhood party with a few friends from school.
Well then I got run over and things came to a halt.
After hibernating for a few days, I got some energy and planned a little birthday party for my girl.
Sarah’s 6th Birthday PartyThe Theme
Sarah loves playing with figurines. Lately she’s been a fan of the Shopkins figurines. So after a little Pinterest search (I really had no clue what these things were all about) we came up with a food themed Shopkins birthday party.
Since the invite list consisted of mostly neighborhood kids we knew we wanted to do it in the grassy area in our neighborhood.
Thanks to Targets $1 bin I found some super cute items to decorate the lawn. The rest of the items came from Amazon (hooray for prime membership!).
Unfortunately, I didn’t have it in me to bake or cook anything like I normally do. So Sarah and I went to the grocery store the day of the party and bought all the food.
Unfortunately someone else had my camera so I didn’t get pictures of all the food. :(
Like the food, I was in no condition to bake a birthday cake like I have done in the past. I picked up the phone and called the our local grocery stores bakery department and ordered a cookie cake to go with the theme.
Fun fact: The candle broke as I was taking it out of the package. With no time to get another candle, I hot glued it back together. #momwin
To go with the “Kooky Cookie” theme we had a cookie decorating station. We also had a super fun doughnut eating contest to go with our “Delish Doughnut” theme.
We ended the afternoon with a scavenger hunt around the neighborhood.
I always like to get the birthday girl a special outfit. I try to get her something special, but something that she’ll wear again. My friend Stacee said I should check the kids department at Kohls. I’m so glad that I did! They had lot’s of choices to pick from. I got her this dress. Favors
The kids got to “shop” the treat table, but in hindsight I should have hidden some of the candy. The kids went bananas as soon as they saw the treat table. Thank you to my sweet friends for coming early and setting up. We couldn’t have put this party together without your love and help.
Happy 6th birthday my love!
