Olivia's 2nd Pinkalicious Birthday Party {PICTURE HEAVY!}


Pinkalicious Birthday Party
I am so excited to share with all of you my daughters second birthday party!
 
These were the invites I created and sent out:

{I have had lots of requests for this invitation and am now offering a personalized printable file for sale!  $15 gets you a personalized invite with photo in pdf format.  You print, cut and assemble yourself.  The brads I used are available in the scrapbook aisle of any craft store for under $2.}


We had such a Pinkalicious time!  The little girls were all dolled up in their best pink outfits, including my little "Pinky".  Her dress was custom made by Willow Bean Studio:

I love that they aren't large so they don't get in the way.

Pink, pink and more pink was obviously the color of this Pinkalicious Party:

 Streamers, cha-cha's (tissue paper balls), and a wonderful birthday banner (more info below), pink lemonade, watermelon, strawberries, girl favors, cupcakes and the Pinkalicious book complete the tablescape.

The cupcakes were decorated by my cousin and myself.  Vanilla cupcakes and frosting were colored pink with food coloring.  We used red hots instead of cherries and red frosting for the swirls.  I also made a small 4" cake for my daughter.  I printed pink sheets of 11x17 and used it to cover boxes and then wrapped them with ribbon to create a cupcake stand.  The other stand was purchased at Joann's with a 50% off coupon.  I also created the cupcake toppers and they are available for download for FREE!

I purchased foam crowns and star wands at Target.  The girls wore these throughout the party.

Isn't that birthday banner gorgeous?  I did not make it... Pink Elephants and Blue Rhinos sent it to me and it was PERFECT.


Check out these cookies!

They were just as delicious as they look!  Thank you so much to Sugarlily Cookie Company!  Lisa and I traded services, I designed her new blog and she sent me 28 delicious cookies.  And Lisa was so fabulous she also sent me some sample cookies, and let me tell you those were gone in 2 seconds flat.  If you want to make a big statement, consider handing out cookies as favors.  All of the adults turned into kids when I handed these out!  And don't think that more than a few didn't open them up right then and there!  Seriously, these things were VERY well received!  For more information on Sugarlily Cookies stop by their blog or their facebook page.

I created the water bottle labels and printed them on full label sheets, cut them out and stuck them on.  Don't they look adorable?  You can download non-personalized ones for your little Pinky here.

The party favors were to cure the Pinkitis syndrome all the party-goers came down with at the party.

Green ring pops, gum, kisses, peeps and andie mints were all packed inside.  The boys also got some creepy green bugs and parachute army men.  These are also available for download!  They are sized to fit a regular Ziploc sandwich bag.

I gave my little nephew Conner this blue hat so he could play the part of Pinky's brother, Peter.


Present time was a blast.  It was a GORGEOUS spring day so we ended up doing everything outside, including eating cupcakes and strawberry ice cream, and even opening presents.  My husband and a bunch of the uncles and grandpa's and an aunt or two all played a game of basketball.  There was lots of games of catch going on with the older cousins.  The younger cousins and friends enjoyed the swing set, 4-wheeler and just plain running around in the warm, sunny outdoors!


Olivia loved her present from mom and dad!  We couldn't get her to come out of it!  She literally stayed in her new little home for over an hour just playing!

Thanks to the hubby for putting this together and carrying it out to surprise our little princess.


I used fake flowers from Joann's (purchased for 50% off) to add a touch of color to the window boxes.

How many kids can you pack into a playhouse before the come bursting out?  Answer: 8!


Happy 2nd Birthday to my littlest one!  I love you so much and can't believe you are growing so fast.  You are a truly beautiful little girl, inside and out.  You are strong and independent, but you are still my little cuddle-bug!  Mom and Dad are so very proud of the little lady you are becoming!

  29. Whoaaaa! I see pink everywhere! This birthday party is splendid. These little girls, especially the lovable celebrant, are very fortunate to live their dream of being a princess for a day with all the crowns, wands and those cutie patootie dresses. I’m sure they’ll all remember this event til they grow up. =)
