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.

Summer is coming to an end but I am enjoying it through this party just a little bit longer. Camping is one of our favorite summer activities. What is more perfect than a Camping Birthday Party! Turn your backyard into your own campground and add our printable decorations for a fun theme. If you live in places where summer weather lasts into the September and October there is still time to host your own camping party.
