lalaloopsy party

February 15, 2012

a few weeks back i posted about planning my daughter's
lalaloopsy party

as promised there was lots of
buttons, sewing & lalaloopsy dolls
my daughter really likes the lalaloopsy dolls
and i loved incorporating so many of the handmade
details they have into a party.


for the invite, i drew inspiration from her doll
misty misterious's outfit

the cake
i saw a cake on pinterest that had a giant fondant
lalaloopsy doll on top.
that's a little outside of my decorating comfort zone.
but i thought i could recreate the bottom half
and add my own twist on top.
{to see the original check out my pinterest board
it's not perfect, but it's really important to me to make
my own cakes.

welcome sign - button number
 i like to have a backdrop for behind all
the bday girl's "blowing out the candles" pictures.
this one was made out of crepe paper {streamers} sewn together.
i learned how to do it here.
it was very easy, although time consuming.  if you try it,
just go as fast as you can, not worrying about it being perfect.
the less perfect ones actually look prettier.
also, it takes a lot of streamers.
i think i used about 10 rolls for this small area.
luckily they are cheap
{especially the 2 per pack at the dollar store}.
 i also used the doily ball that i showed you how to make here.
draping down from the doiley ball and
going out & down the edges of the streamers are
pom poms and buttons strung on baker's twine.
 my daughter's special banner
here's a closeup of one of the pennants
 food display

 paper printable banner

 {cute paper cups from the sugar diva}
 {i used this recipe but followed these directions}

 drink cup labels
{there were 2 versions that will be available-
this pink and then the multi colored scallop polka dot
background from the printed banner}


i split the girls into a few small groups
to make it more manageable.
 each girl got to make a lalaloopsy pet.
the pets are very simple shapes so they were easy to recreate.
we decided to do the bunny and the mouse.
i created a template and cut them out of felt.
then i used a small hole puncher to make
the holes for the girls to sew their pets shut.
 we used a plastic "needle" and yarn
 the girls picked out button eyes and i hot glued them on.
 we also played "push my button"
{a lalaloopsy version of sorry}
{i found this over sized coloring book at hobby lobby}
then as a whole group
"pin the button eye on the lalaloopsy doll"
{this picture looks kind of scary - ha!- i swear 
she could breath.  it was a very lightweight
gauzy scarf!}

 favor bags from endless inkabilities
{same bags i used for my invite envelopes}
 favor tags - custom with name
 the favors included:
 a button barrette
lalaloopsy pencil toppers {found at target}
and a bag of color coordinating candies
 bag toppers

if you are interested in any of these paper goods
{some handmade/some pdfs},
please contact me through my etsy shop.
i may not have them up for awhile, but
if you send me a message i will be doing
orders by request.
