A Simple But Sweet Girl’s Birthday Party

A Simple But Sweet Girl's Birthday Party
Kids’ birthday parties don’t need to be an elaborate celebration. While I love throwing huge events, keeping things simple and easy is sometimes the way to go, especially when they are little and can sometimes be overwhelmed by a big party. When my niece turned two years old, a small family birthday party was the perfect plan.

Kids Birthday Invitations -- My Very Happy Birthday for Girls
We wanted it to be cute and look tied together, but didn’t really have a theme to work with. My sister and I turned to Pear Tree Greetings for girl birthday party ideas. We loved the bright colors and characters on the My Very Happy Birthday for Girls Birthday Invitations. Easy enough, we then had something to base our party around!

Movie Night Birthday Party

My good friend Marni enlisted my help for her daughter’s 5th birthday party. As the mom of two boys, it was so much fun to be involved in the planning of a GIRL party! Since her birthday is in the summer we wanted to find something fun to do outdoors, and we landed on doing an outdoor movie night. Her daughter loves movies, especially at movie theaters, so we wanted to bring that experience to their backyard.

We found the perfect invitation, Glowing Affair Photo Trifold Party Invitations, which gave us the flexibility to change colors, fonts and text so we could make it fit our theme. We changed the main text to read, “IT’S SHOWTIME!” For the photo we had a little mini photo session with the perfect prop, popcorn. Pretty sure Gwyneth had a great time, and it really helped set the stage for the party! Turns out the invitations inspired a lot of our outdoor movie party ideas, including the decorations, colors and activities.

Even before choosing the invitation we knew we wanted lanterns and lights hanging around the yard. Pinterest had LOTS of ideas for this, some not so realistic, but we threw some up here and there, and it definitely added a little element of ‘party’ to the backyard.

Yee Haw! Cowgirl Birthday Party Ideas

When discussing my niece’s birthday theme with my sister-in-law, we tossed around a few different ideas and browsed through Pear Tree’s collection for inspiration, but it wasn’t until we brought up cowgirl birthday party ideas that it took Ashlyn all of 2 seconds to say “YES!” and off we went, planning her cowgirl themed 5th birthday party!

Our Yee-haw! Western Birthday Invitations in Pink are one of my favorite cowgirl birthday party invitations. (Yes, we have more than one!) I love the typography, the colors, the wood grain pattern, everything. My sister-in-law snapped the perfect photo to use on the card, too, with Ashlyn in her pink cowgirl hat.

I have to give my sister-in-law lots (maybe all?) of credit on the decor! Guests knew they were at the right party with a pink cowgirl hat hanging on the front door to welcome everyone. Who needs balloons?

2. Sew it together! For this adventurous birthday party, we used our Searching for Superheroes party decorations and sewed them together. Just start your sewing machine and line up the pieces. Keep stitching in between and soon you’ll have a banner you can hang anywhere you like.
