My sweet baby girl is turning 7 in a few weeks, and for months, every time we go to the grocery store she asks to look at "her cake." About 6 months ago, she picked out a Lalaloopsy cake from the binder at the grocery store with pictures of all of the cake options. So, Lalaloopsy theme party, here we come! I took this week off to be home with the girls, and was mildly panic-stricken yesterday when I realized that her party is only 3 weeks away and I had yet to FIND, much less MAIL invitations...! One productive evening on Google and Pinterest later, and I'm feeling like a plan is coming together!
I searched on Google for "Lalaloopsy dresses for girls" and found a really cute pink and yellow-orange polka dot "pillowcase" dress from jazzygirlboutique on Etsy. I had seen some really cute Lalaloopsy dresses with the licensed characters on them, but I loved this little dress -- it has a Lalaloopsy feel to it, but it's something that she can wear as a pretty (non-character) dress. And, since it's a pillowcase dress, as she grows she can wear it with tights or leggings and eventually, even as a cute summer shirt. I like keeping with a theme, but I also like to be practical -- no one-hit-wonders over here!
That's where I am for now -- lots of ideas for decorating -- I will certainly get balloons, because to me it's not a birthday party without balloons! And as I usually do, I will get a couple of "character" items (tablecloth and napkins or plates) and then fill in the rest of the paper products with complimentary solid color -- less expensive that way, but still cute! I will also gather up all of the Lalaloopsy toys that we have around here to use in decorating the table. And I have some ideas for favor bags.
Lots of fun -- I love party planning!
