Pajama Party

Oh boy1 I'm tired! Today was Adyson's 5th B-day party and kick off to a week's worth of B-day celebrations. (We have A LOT in store for her this week including a family party, her b-day presents from us on Wednesday, a Dance Review, an eye appointment (glasses?), soccer starts (daddy's coaching!), and she has been begging for MONTHS to go to the Olive Garden (yes, very expensive taste), so this week sometime we will spoil her and let her eat those bread sticks up! I'm tired just thinking of it!

This year we opted for a Pajama Party theme, and I really tried to keep it more simple than last year's pink extravaganza. Less kids=simple. We had a lot of fun coming up with some great pajama party ideas!

The invites: Cheap Slippers from Target's dollar section with simple invites tucked inside. EASIEST and cutest invites I've ever done!
The Birthday Girl waiting for her guests. Oh boy was she excited!
Craft Project: When they first got there we had dark blue poster boards (cut in half), glow in the dark star stickers, cotton balls, and gold glitter glue. The girls each made their own night scape. This was my backup plan to decorating pillow cases (when I realized pillow cases are $4 a pop!), and I actually think this was more fun. They each has such a unique style in the way they decorated their sky's.

Game: Adyson really wanted to play pin the tail on the donkey, so we mixed it up a bit and made night hats for the donkey. The girls LOVED this (I think it was their favorite part of the party, and it costed like a dollar!). We were teasing them that the poor donkey was gonna have a very cold head because no one got real close! They had a great time trying though.

The finished product:

The prize: It was fun picking out pajama party themed prizes. For us we usually are doing such girly things that this was a fun change! Glow in the dark stars.
Book: Llama llama Red Pajama read by daddy. They had a great time guessing the rhyme that was coming.
Next up: The dream game. Each girl snuggled into a blanket and pretended to be asleep. Then I would say "Adyson is dreaming that she is a dog", and Adyson would pretend she was a dog. They were giggling through this whole game and were just as darling as can be.


Next: The Pajama Fashion Show. This was Hilarious! I wasn't sure they would get into this, but oh my, I was wrong. These little diva's have practiced their model walks, and knew just what to do. At the end of the cat-walk they each stopped and gave me their best model pose! It was too cute.

Game:Pass the Pillow Case. We turned on some tunes (Banana's in pajamas) and passed the case. When the music stopped so did the passing. Then they could pick a prize out of the case.

Present time: Adyson's favorite part of the day! She got spoiled rotten by all of her cute friends!


Cupcake time: I found these cute little sleeping bag cupcakes online. (Mine didn't turn out near as cute as my example, but they were still fun to do.) I was quite proud of my domestic efforts here!






While we were waiting for the parents to come we played a little game my brother and sil taught us. "Bunnies sleeping." Each girl lays down and pretends to be a bunny sound asleep, while we sing "Bunnies sleeping, bunnies sleeping, sleeping in till noon, bunnies sleeping bunnies sleeping hope they wake up soon. WAKE UP BUNNIES, WAKE UP!, and they wake up and hop around the house. It was a good way to waste a few minutes and they were all cracking up. This was Sienna's favorite part of the day!

Their goodie bags: Inside was filled with girlie chap sticks, candy, and a few glow in the dark surprises, and they each got a cute little flashlight my mom picked up for them. The group: I'm pretty thankful for Adyson's darling little friends. They are all such good girls and so much fun! And cuties too!


That little one in the yellow is Sienna. Remember her? I feel like I haven't blogged about her in a while, and Adyson still has some big moments still headed her way. Don't worry Enna bug, we sure love you, and your big day is only a month away!

How much do you charge to plan other people's daughters' parties? Seriously, the creativity will never flow out of me like that. Hopefully it won't scar my kid too much.
