Her “theme” for her party was simply combining her favorite color and favorite print — turquoise and zebra print. Baby Girl is not lacking when it comes to a style all her own. The biggest challenge for this party was coming up with food that went with the “theme”.
- The balloons were purchased at the Dollar Tree(blue) and Hobby Lobby(zebra). I personally wish I’d picked up a couple more bags so I could have added two or three more strands but Baby Girl loved them as they were. I combined a couple off different ideas I saw on Pinterest and used a needle and thread to to string the balloons together. I tied each balloon in place before adding the next balloon.
- The table coverings(I layered a zebra print one over a turquoise one) came from Walmart.
- I made two tissue paper flowers and placed them in white vases I already had(from Goodwill.) I found the blue/sparkly white tissue paper on clearance at Target. The zebra print tissue paper came from Hobby Lobby.
My daughter saw this idea on Pinterest and we found a great tutorial at My Cake School.
- Baby Girl loves buttermints so when I found a small bag of them in zebra striped packaging for $1 at Walmart I knew we had to include them.
- We also made pretzel rods dipped in white candy coating and drizzled with dark chocolate for a zebra stripe effect.
- While walking down the candy aisle looking for inspiration, I spotted the Hershey’s Hugs and knew those would make a great addition.
- And finally, we had fruit skewers. Nothing theme related about them but I had to include something healthy.
The Party Favors
We continued the zebra theme with the party favors. We filled small bags with Little Debbie Zebra Cakes, a handful of Hershey’s Hugs and a buttermint. Then we tied them closed with zebra ribbon and slid a zebra print pinwheel in behind the ribbon to complete the bags.
- The Zebra Cakes, Hershey’s Hugs, buttermints and blue bags came from Walmart.
- The zebra print ribbon and pinwheels came from Hobby Lobby.
The Birthday Girl
Baby Girl loved her party and had a blast with her friends. They played on the slip & slide, played Pictionary on the U-Draw, and had fun playing dress up. They talked, laughed and put off sleep as long as possible. It was a great way to celebrate being 9.
