My daughter waited not so patiently to turn 8 so she could have a slumber party for her birthday. Since a slumber party is an event all on its own we decided to make that our theme. No need for anything else. A sleepover lends itself to so many fun activities.

 

She wanted silver accents throughout. We decided the easiest way to do that was to layer all the slumber party printable decorations with silver glitter paper. You will notice the touch of sparkle throughout the decor.

 

We created a fun space to eat in our dining room. I lucked out that my paint scheme coordinated nicely with our party colors of aqua, hot pink, and navy. We used the chevron table runner from our Bake Shop Party. I found simple pink polka dot plates, and added a pop of color with polka dot tissue poms on the table and hanging.

 

I love this printable slumber party centerpiece trio. It features classic slumber party images. You can see the glimmer of sparkle added with the silver paper. Any basic box or container can be transformed to make a centerpiece. Just add green floral foam to the bottom and crinkle paper to cover it. Insert your sticks. Dress it up with some ribbon if you like.

 

We didn’t need cupcake toppers for this party as we were doing an ice cream bar. They were to cute not to use though. We dressed up mason jars using the slumber party cupcake topper circles, daisy cut out lids, and hot pink paper straws. 

 

A simple piece of ribbon adds a touch of color to a plain napkin. 

 

Instead of the traditional Happy Birthday banner we did Sweet Dreams to follow our slumber party theme. This is now hanging in my daughter’s bedroom. So fun to be able to use it as decor later as well.

 

Who says tissue poms have to be solid colors. I love the polka dots. These are also hanging in my daughters room. 

 

We started the evening with pizza making. We used pie dishes from the dollar store to hold each girl’s pizza. This kept all the toppings in place and not all over my kitchen. They all got to personalize their pizzas with their favorite toppings.

 

For dessert the birthday girl wanted an ice cream bar. The girls LOVED this. Set out a variety of toppings and styles of cones. Let them go crazy!

 

The birthday candle for the birthday girl.

 

Every slumber party needs popcorn and a movie. These cute popcorn boxes made cute perfect individual portions.

 

For the late night fun we had glow sticks ready.

 

We created a fun table with the party favors. All fitting the slumber party theme of course.

 

I created these paper fans from the same silver glitter paper we used everywhere else. They were the perfect addition to our favor table. The background was a board covered in cute wrapping paper.

 

I found these cute toiletry bags in the Target dollar spot. We filled them with nail polish, nail files, nail stickers, and lip gloss.

 

We bought slippers from the dollar tree (we added a cute bow).

 

Each girl brought a doll to the party. For party favors my daughter helped me make these fleece no sew sleeping bags for the dolls. You can find a tutorial here

 

The girls had a blast with a photo prop wall. We hung a piece of fabric and have them all sorts of dress up objects. They were so goofy!

 

Our last activity of the evening was coloring pillow cases. I traced each girl’s name with black onto plain white pillow cases I purchased on amazon. We provided multiple colors of fabric markers. I placed a piece of cardboard between the layers of fabric so it would not leak through. They colored during our movie time. 

 

For breakfast we had a waffle bar. Assembly style bars were kind of the theme for the food. haha! It made for a lot of elements to prep but the girls loved picking and choosing what they wanted.

 

We dressed up cute glass milk bottles with ribbon and polka dot straws for the morning beverages.

 

Pjs, behead hair, and piles of waffles were the perfect way to end the party.

And of course a matching invitation here.

I have so many fun parties to share with you over the next few weeks/months. I am playing catch up once again after taking a bit of a break from blogging. A family of 6 causes that to happen once in a while. Watch for some fun new themes that have been added to 5M.

For my daughter’s 9th birthday she wanted a theme both girls and boys would enjoy. After much thinking we landed on bowling. Who doesn’t love to bowl? The party mom in me cringed a little as I wasn’t sure what this would mean for decor. I requested a couple of end lanes so I could have a wall to do my table against. It worked perfectly. We carried in tubs of decor as ready to go as it could possibly be and set everything up in about 20 minutes prior to the party. Don’t be afraid to decorate even at an off site party location.

This cake was a special request by my 9 year old after letting her loose on pinterest. She fell in love. A local baker made it happen for us.Bowling Cake- Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations

 

I love this bowling party centerpiece trio. Those shoes!!! Centerpiece circles are one of my favorite ways to add the theme into my space. They can be on the larger side like this box set up or just single circles in a container. I also use them on the front of  things like buckets holding favor. The glitter 9 was actually a 6 I used at her baking party . Flipped over and tada! Bowling Centerpiece - Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations

 

I lucked out that this toy bowling set my kids had matched the colors. Think outside the box when choosing decor. Don’t be afraid to look around the house for things you may already have. I love re-purposing things.

 

Our printable Happy Birthday bowling banner has cute stripes and fun bowling pin images. It can be personalized as well. Banners are such a great way to add big impact. Use them as your backdrop or across the front of a table like this.Bowling Banner - Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations

 

I am in love with the bowling pin banner! Easy to string together and small enough to use anywhere in the party. How cute are those bowling pins?Bowling Banner - Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations

 

I loved that our bowling alley let us set up our party space right at the lanes vs a party room. It made it easy for the kids to come and go as they ate. Plus we got to enjoy our decor the whole party. Not just for 30 minutes at the end.Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations

 

These cute bowling images made the perfect centerpieces for the table. Mini galvanized buckets are one of my favorite containers for a single centerpiece. They are a great neutral base that can be dressed up with ribbon in your party colors. Bowling Centerpiece - Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations Bowling Centerpiece - Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations

 

Each place setting had a bubble gum tube with our printable bowling favor tag.Bowling Party Favor - Girl Bowling Party Printable Party Package by 5M Creations

This week I am sharing another customer party. This party package was a custom request by the mom and I love how it turned out. A mix of gray chevron, red and navy, with cute vintage airplanes.

 

This is a perfect example of how banners can be used in so many ways. I love the use of it to dress up the food table.

 

How sweet is this airplane cake? The smash cake is always the best part of the first birthday.

 

This printable airplane party package includes a high chair banner. They are the perfect addition for those great cake photos.

 

A sweet red toy plane and balloons make a cute centerpiece. Add some coloring pages for the party guests to keep them occupied during the slower times of the party.

 

Custom signs are always available to match any of our party themes.

 

Personalized favor tags saying thank you from the birthday boy are a great way to send your guests off.

This customer party is so much fun. There is something magical about a sweet tea party! This party features our printable Tea Party decoration package

 

The Tea party happy birthday banner features some pinks and blues with a mix of polka dots and stripes. I love it against this paisley backdrop.

 

Cupcakes in cute tea cup wrappers are the cutest touch. A scalloped frame adds a bit of whimsy to a traditional topper. Sweet tea cups, cupcakes, and tea pots are the perfect addition to the cupcakes.

 

What tea party is complete without stacks of tea cups in all shapes, colors and sizes? Mixing and matching adds to the charm.

 

This table is breathtaking. Adding a classic lace tablecloth over the top of a plastic colored tablecloth gives an elegant soft touch of pink to the table and makes for easy clean up. Use different sizes and heights of serving trays on your tablescape.

 

These chair tutus soften the harsh metal folding chair. They can be multi purpose serving as a party favor for the guests to take home.

 

How beautiful are these place settings? A mix of paper and china makes this table budget friendly. I love the look of the pop of color with the elegant china.  Check your local goodwill for great deals on mix and match china pieces. 

 

Every tea party needs finger foods. Mix and match sweet and savory foods of all kinds to create a lunch for your guests. I love the watermelon cut out with a flower cookie cutter. Beads were glued to the end of toothpicks to make a sparkly server for cheese cubes. Put fruit and veggies in polka dot cups to dress them up.

 

 

Sweet pearls dress up the place setting and the girls will be so excited to receive them. 

 

Our printable Tea Party printable centerpiece circles make a cute display on any table. The metal tea cup used is amazing!

 

The girls decorated these tea party hats with faux flowers. The hats are made from paper plates and bowls. So creative!

 

The bases for these purses were made from card board boxes and decorated by the girls as well.

 

So sweet!

 

At the end of the party each girl took home a box with the leftover goodies.

 

I love all of the special details that were incorporated into this party!

For my twins 7th birthday they requested a Rescue Bot party. I had actually avoided this theme for the last 3 years as there is NOTHING available for the theme. They have been in love with them for years and I really wanted to give them the theme they wanted. We did not want grown up transformers. I finally found some art work online and decided to make my own.

I started with a basic Rescue Bots welcome sign. My boys have this on their bedroom door now. This balloon wreath I found on pinterest by Abstract Grace. I love that it can be used for any birthday in the family. It is also able to be customized by changing the colors to fit your theme. It was super easy to assemble.

Rescue Bot Welcome Sign & Balloon Wreath

 

I knew that I wanted a party table. We are lucky to have a great deck in our backyard. We set up tables for the kids to eat at to keep the mess outdoors. On one end I set up this Rescue Bot display and a gift table. Being outside does not mean you have to skip out on decor. The boys Rescue Bot figures and fire station made a great display.

Rescue Bot Party Table FREE Printables

 

I wanted the characters front and center on the Resuce Bot cupcake toppers. We went with a light blue starburst background so the bright characters would pop. I added a few logos as well.

Rescue Bot Cupcake Toppers FREE Printables

 

For the Rescue Bot Happy Birthday banner I wanted the characters and colors to be bright and bold. I love how it turned out.

For centerpieces my boys had large transformers we placed on the tables. We added some balloons to mason jars filled with paper shreds. What party is complete without balloons?

My boys wanted to play party games at their Rescue Bot Birthday Party. We created a Rescue Bot obstacle course. They had to rescue a stuffed kitten from a tree, race up then slide down the fire station(play structure). run across a ring maze,Obstacle Course

 

Climb through a tunnel,

Obstacle Course

 

Shoot the Deceptaconcans with nerf gun,Obstacle Course

 

Use their robot hands to transport a ball, then race back to their team. The kids loved the obstacles. They spent most of the time doing the stations over and over.Obstacle Course

 

My boys also wanted a “pin the” game. The transformer party games I could find did not work for the number of kids I had. I made a large sign and created a transformer logo sticker for each kid to place over the logo on the sign. It worked perfectly.

Rescue Bot Pin The Game FREE Printables

 

Last was the always loved pinata. I got this one from www.walmart.com.

Transformer Pinata

Overall it was such a fun party and fairly easy to make happen. The boys had a blast. In my opinion a party where kids can run around outside is the best kind of party.

Because the images used are licensed characters I cannot sell the files in my shop. Lucky for you I am sharing these files that I created for my own personal use FREE. (For Personal Use Only). Not for reproduction, commercial use, or sharing. I hope you have your own awesome Rescue Bot Party. Like always I love seeing customer photos to share on my blog or instagram.

This baby shower was one of my favorites. I helped a friend with the decor to celebrate her sister(my friend) and new nephew on the way. Her nursery was a fox theme so we went with a woodland fox themed baby shower. 158-3

 

This little guy is so sweet! I love this fox cake with a cute flag bunting. A wood slice is the perfect stand to compliment our woodland theme.

138

 

We had lots of fun food for this woodland baby shower. Accents of pine cones, woven trays, and burlap gave a rustic feel to the elegant platters.154

 

Pine cone cheese ball.155

 

Dipped marshmallows, jam tarts, mini banana cream pies, mini cheesecakes.food-2

 

These adorable acorn cookies are such a fun addition. Hershey’s kisses, mini golden oreos, and chocolate chips make these tiny little treats.180

 

Forest animal ginger cookies.
169

137

 

Create a space for your guests to leave gifts and leave a note for baby. For this shower guests signed a Dr. Suess fox book for baby to keep. 172

 

My favorite part of baby showers is making personalized decor that can be used in their nursery.  The host created this great fox canvas mimicking the arrow pattern from the decor and the word fox contrasting in a pop of orange. Also featured was a framed printable with the baby’s name and meaning. The adorable fox canvas toy box was a gift.
121 acces-1

 

Our printable fox baby shower centerpiece is also a fun addition to any nursery after the party. Add a little twine and kraft colored crinkle paper to a metal tin to complete the look.124

 

A fireplace is a great place for banners to be featured. We used the woodland animal printable circles to create a mini banner along with more triangles strung together.114

 

Paper mache latters are easily dressed up to be a statement piece with just a little paint. Another great gift for the mommy to be. The base kraft color of the letters ties into the rustic woodland feel.118

 

I created a printable bingo card for the baby shower game. Have guests write in gifts they think the mommy to be will open. As she opens presents they can mark off the ones they got correct. 5 across makes BINGO.142

 

A cute chalkboard is a great way to reserve mom’s special chair for gift opening. 177

 

To find all the printable woodland fox baby shower decoration items above and lots more you can purchase this package in my etsy shop.

Elephant Baby Shower Ideas- by 5M Creations

This adorable boy elephant baby shower was thrown for a friend. She loved the Carter’s navy and light blue elephant clothing line that was out at the time. I used that as inspiration for this set. Our mutual friend Danielle hosted this party and went with carnival inspired food and of course peanuts. It was so much fun.
