My little girl turns 4 today at 7:28p. We had her birthday party this past Saturday and I thought I’d share some pictures and printables, top 10-style.
1. The cake.
Isn’t it cute? And totally easy! Boxed cake mix, 2 cans of frosting, blue food coloring, and 3 butterfingers bars. She had a blast beating the bars with a soup ladle. I should have taken a picture of THAT!
2. Happy birthday banner.
I made it myself with items received in a review I did for mygrafico! You can download a nameless happy birthday banner – Page 1, Page 2, Page 3, Page 4.
Everyone had one and no one took one home so I guess it’s a good thing we like the south pacific :).
4. Flip flops.
Originally I saw these as doorway hangers but I taped them to the door since I have little kids. I think she’s going to want them in her room later. You can get the files here – Page 1, Page 2, Page 3, Page 4, Page 5.
5. Cupcake toppers.
I made these too and even put one in the cake so I didn’t have to pipe frosting!
6. Party favors.
Totally forgot to pass these out until the end of the party which is just as well since I didn’t have enough. I bought the bubbles at the CVS, 6 for $4. The buckets were on clearance in Target for $0.20 each! and the beach balls came from Oriental Trading Co.
7. Thank you stickers.
These I made too (see favors above for pic). I put them on the bubbles & will use the rest for envelope seals for the thank you cards. Download your copy here–I printed these on Avery 5408 labels.
8. Cool dishes/trays
I bid on a beach basket at a church fundraiser with the party in mind. They were perfect!
9. Mylar balloons.
In my opinion, it’s not a birthday without Mylar balloons. I tried to order some luau ones but everything else was out of stock and so I just canceled to order.
Surprisingly, she requested homemade pizza for her birthday. Who am I to argue? I also had salad, chips & dip, and my step-mother brought a grape salad so I didn’t have to make mine :). We also had cupcakes & the cake. I meant to serve ice cream, too, but I forgot.
What are some of your birthday traditions?
