PJ Masks, It's Time To Be A Hero

PJ Masks we're on our way, into the night to save the day!

PJ Masks has been the favorite daytime cartoon for a while now so when it came time to pick a party theme this year I'll give you a second to guess what it may have been!  I actually found this a little harder than I thought but I was putting too much pressure on myself to have the perfect party.  Party city had a ton of PJ Masks stuff so I just used it.  Well, most of it anyway.

I did still create my own invitation, door sign, banner and thank you notes.   I also just finally got them added to my Etsy shop so you can view them there too.

I've repeated over and over that someday my photography will improve.  Well, it hasn't.  Some things you just have a knack for and right now I don't have it.  For the table decorations I found the character balls at Party City and the sky scraper tower at Oriental Trading.  I made the happy birthday banner and it's in my shop.

For the food on the tower I had red, blue and green jello cups.  I do not make jello very often, like maybe 1 other time ever but I thought what 4 year old won't like jello.  None of the kids liked it.  A lot of people commented how they don't make it either so I guess it was new for most of the kids.  I ate a lot of jello since JP wouldn't!  I also had little cups of popcorn with the leftover chocolate from the marshmallows drizzled over it.  I love the salty/sweet combo!

During the nice weather months we try to do a lot of fire-pits with the neighbors and do smores with the kids.  JP has a new obsession with marshmallows so adding marshmallow pops was a quick and easy treat.

The cake came from our usual bakery, Creative Cakes.  It's sure not cheap but they always look so good and taste great too so we splurge.  I pulled up pictures and let JP pick the cake.  I like other ones better that had more of the characters as part of the cake but it's not about me.  He was very excited about the cake.

A note for next year, keep the cake up higher and out of reach.  The characters were a little too tempting for some of the kids so if you look closely you can see they along with the cake took a little beating.

I did make the annual stat sign again and had it printed at Costco.  Party City had a lot of options for little trinkets so the bags had a few PJ Masks trinkets and they used these for their pinata goodies too.

I found this city skyline online at Target and it turned out perfect for the table.  I cut out the characters with my new Cricut Expression Air 2 using the print to cut feature, fliping the image and repeating so it was a character on each side.  I ran them through the Xyron and added a skewer and into a mason jar with gift fizzy things.  

Getting a handful of 3-6 year olds to hold photo booth props, stand still and look is asking a lot so I thought this turned out cute!  I found the props at Party City.  They came with a different background but I had a different idea in mind.  For the buildings I wrapped a few empty boxes (we are never short on boxes with my love of online shopping) with black craft paper and cut gold paper into equal rectangles and 'randomly' placed them on.  Randomly is in quotes because I am too detailed to really just do it random, in my mind it needs to be balanced but look random so there was a method to how I continued to place them on.  I know, I have issues!

The pinata was another Party City find.  I had a little candy in it but also glow sticks and the other PJ Masks goodies that Party City had.  

I hope you can get some good ideas if you are looking for a PJ Masks party!

Mickey Mouse Birthday Party

To view items from this party or request an item visit my Welcoming Sentiments Etsy shop.

Another year has come and gone and JP is now 2.  Everyone told me it would go fast and I've noticed all along but it doesn't help slow it down at all!  That's why I love that I can be home with him so I can soak up all of these fun moments.

We have started to watch a little TV.  Sometimes I just need to get dinner cooked or something done and need his attention elsewhere.  It's life, and we shouldn't feel guilty about doing it a little.  I say that but still have that 'mom guilt' that I'm not paying attention to him.  Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is one of his favorites.  Mickey Mouse was his first unprompted 2 word phrase and Mickey Mouse House was his first unprompted 3 word phrase.  That only meant that we needed a Mickey Mouse birthday party.  This year I did do most everything for the party myself so I was happy about that.  We kept it small this year and once aga…

Growing my Etsy shop

I will slowly be adding items to my shop and will likely focus on downloadable printables.  I love crafting and hand making items for parties and things like that but I want time for that to be my own hobby and not having the only time I do it to be for 'work'.

JP has started pre-school already, I can't believe it!  It gives me a little time each day to get something done in peace.  It's just like when he used to nap but I don't have to stay home!  That may sound like I'm thrilled he's in school and part of me is.  He is so excited each day to go and comes out with a big smile saying he had fun at school today.  That makes me happy.  The first day was not good for me.  I held it together until I got back in the truck but then I cried.  Luckily I had scheduled a meeting that first day to keep my mind off of it so time passed and we were all good.  Now that I know he's happy I can be a little more excited to have some time back ;)

Monkey 1st Birthday

This post is very late but as my multitasking mind takes over I am now on my 3rd different thing that I'm doing on the computer besides what I sat down to do.

When planning his birthday party and theme I went with a general monkey theme.  We don't watch a lot of TV and really it's hard to tell what a 1 year old in really 'into'.  My cousin Beth with Beth Kruse Custom Creations designed my party printables.  I normally do this kind of thing on my own but there were just too many things going on in our lives at the time for me to add 1 more thing to my plate.  She has fabulous parties so I knew I was outsourcing to someone great!

I scoured Pinterest for food inspiration and was pretty pleased with what I found.  

Banana Split Popcorn I thought this popcorn was really good.  I have a sweet tooth so it was a great treat!
