Did You See this DIY Shopkins Party?

Hey Cuties,

Last week was a busy one for me; LittleCuteLips turned 5 on Thursday and Babe and I spent the day with her. We went to see the movie Trolls which was really cute; Justin Timberlake did all of the music. Saturday was the big day, we entertained family and friends in our home. I DIY’d 80% of the party and I was so please with the outcome.

The invitation

This was her invitation, it was so stinking cute. I made it based on a few samples I saw in a Google search.

The food table

I had one main food table; we dined on pasta salad, meatballs and pizza.  I had Shopkins theme tent cards to represent all the food.

Shopkins Cake

This was my one splurge item for the party. I wanted my daughter to have a Shopkins theme cake. She loved it.

Fun Fetti Cupcakes

I baked the fun fetti cupcakes and colored vanilla frosting in pink and purple to go with my theme. I created the cupcake toppers myself and used a scalloped cut out to make the shape then taped them to toothpicks.

Pretzels

I made chocolate dipped and sprinkled pretzels. You can see my coordinating tent card. In the background you can see the colorful utensils we had with labels on the jars as well.

Cookies and Pretzels

I love this food rack; it makes displaying food so easy. I’ve had it for years and I just swap out the plates to suit my theme. I filled this with cookies I purchased and chocolate drizzled pretzel bows I made.

More pretzels

I had a variety of chocolate pretzels, including purple dipped pretzel rods with lime green chocolate drizzle.

Fruit & Beverages

I made labels for the juice barrels and the water bottles. I already owned these colorful butterfly trays and they were perfect for the fruit.

The vibrant juice colors were a great match for the colorful Shopkins theme. The labels were really easy to create.

Candy Decor

I loved the way my candy theme turned out.  The two lollipops on the left were purchased from Hobby Lobby. The little candies inside the jar are actually miniature tree ornaments. The gum drop tree was a lofty goal of mine. I purchased a Styrofoam cone and a 5 pound back of gum drops and hot glued them on. Shout out to my sister and BFF for finishing it up for me before the party started.

Kiddie Table

I rented this kiddie table and chairs and it was money well spent. The girls ate and snacked here while cackling like little girls do. I made the banner hanging on the wall, it was super easy. This is a better look and some of my other candy decor.

Gift Table

This table was in my dining room, it held gifts, party bags and more cute Shopkins decor. I made the banner and the garland hanging down. The garland is made of scalloped circles on string, then I randomly adding Shopkins stickers onto some of them. LittleCuteLips got a lot of stuffed Shopkins for Christmas so I included them into the decor.

Shopkins Lego Display

LittleCuteLips got this Shopkins Lego display for Christmas and her big brother so graciously put it together for her. Dad secured a display box from Ikea and it was perfect. The plush Shopkins were Christmas gifts and I made the two display jars. I had the milk bottles leftover from a Minecraft party; I added colored puff balls to it and stuck in a stuffed Lollipop.

Party Bags

I created the party tags and stapled them to the bag. I purchased the colored party bags from the craft store.

Party Bag Details

I don’t like to fill kids with candy so I keep them in mind when creating party favor bags. I gave them Shopkins theme tissue, chap stick, rings, shortbread cookies, pencil and a note book. I also created a cute Shopkins cheat sheet that translated all of their goodies into Shopkins items.

Lippy Lips

I know they created this Shopkins just for me. LittleCuteLips had an amazing time celebrating her 5th birthday with her Old Lady Gang (girlfriends) and family and friends. We only have big parties for monumental birthdays. We will do it again in November when the Man-child turns 13.

    My goodness! You have such vision and everything looks fantastic. Did you ever take art classes or is it just natural for you? I’m curious as l wonder why l am totally useless with DIY 🙂

    • MimiCuteLips

      I’ve never taken art, can’t really draw either. I didn’t find my true crafting talents until I was an adult. As a kid I doodled on paper but that was about it.

  2. erinlivelovelaugh

    Lol @”LittleCuteLips”.But I love the Shopkins party decor. I like how you incorporated the stuffed Shopkins she got for Christmas into her birthday party. Very crafty!

  3. Tomiko

  4. Eva

    This is such a cute party! I haven’t done a real party for the kids in such a long time, I don’t know that I would even know what to do. This is really neat. I love that the gift bags aren’t full of candy or stuff they won’t use. Very cool.

    • MimiCuteLips

      Eva, this why we only do them for the big birthdays.

      Girl I hate when people send my kids home with a bunch of candy so I don’t do it either.
