A few weeks ago it was my daughter’s 8th birthday.  Each year we try different ideas and this year we came up with Pancakes & Pajama theme.  Cute eh! Well it was so much fun and so adorable.  It definitely allowed me to get creative and do a lot of hands on decorating which I have come to realize I love doing… 🙂

I first had to find a color palette and theme for it… I fell in love with Vera Bradley‘s new Tutti Frutti line, so adorable.  When Vera Bradley un-velied her new Tutti Frutti line, she had the help of Kim Stoegbauer of The TomKat Studio.  Now what Kim designed this party design for was for a baby shower and not a birthday party.  It was so beautiful I knew I had to use it for KK’s birthday party so I changed it up a bit.

That’s when the planning began.  Kim had shared Tutti Frutti Printables for Cupcake Flags, Food Labels, Banner, Note Cards and Thank You Flags.

For the birthday invites I downloaded the note cards printable and cut pink construction paper and typed up all of the birthday info, date, address, time, rsvp info and of course a reminder to wear pajamas.

For the big “K” (pictured above) I was able to find one at Jo-ann fabrics and spray painted it silver and found little fans at Hobby Lobby and scrapbook flowers as well.

I made a vanilla buttermilk cake with a buttercream frosting, added a mix of sprinkles and tied colored twine to colored straws (from Hobby Lobby) and glued printable cupcake flags to it.

I bought the goodie bags from Party City and punched the holes in each one and tied colored twine with a Thank You printable label.  These goodie bags for each of the girls to leave with a little candy, cake pops, cookies and donut holes.  The perfect way to thank your friends at the end of a great party!

when each girl arrived they were greeted with a little fresh homemade lemonade
