Whenever I am looking for a theme for my childrens’ birthdays, I really want it to reflect their personality. I styled this party for my Audrey’s 11th birthday. She brings so much sparkle to our lives and truly shines, so a star party was just the perfect theme. I wanted to keep the party as girly and sweet as possible (while she’ll still let me!), so we used several shades of pink, silver and a lot of sparkle in all of the printables and decorations. Everything at the party included stars.
Above the dinner table and down the walls I draped strands of twinkle lights to create a beautiful, star-like setting. Once the sun set, the area truly sparkled. The table was covered with ruffled tablecloth and I used glittered scrapbook paper for the place mats. Each place setting had a takeout box with dinner inside. I glittered wooden utensils and attached them to the box. For the backs of the chairs, I cut out pink stars and used my Cameo Silhouette machine to cut out the girls’ names. I made pedestals out of wooden star cutouts and round boxes for the candles. Pink pom poms in two shades of pink hung over the table.
The drinks were set up on an old wagon that we had. Luckily, it had pink wheel rims. The girls picked from “star”berry soda, sparkling soda, lemonade and personalized water bottles.
The centerpiece of the table was a two tiered chocolate cake decorated with gingham ribbon and star toppers that matched the other printables. The dessert table consisted of a Milky Way, which was milk bottles decorated with stars that I also cut from my Silhouette machine. There were shooting stars, stars in jars with wooden spoons decorated with star jewels, “star”berry cakes in mason jars, clouds (donuts), cupcakes with star lollipops, star bars, star marshmallows, star dust and cups of star cookies.
