i did a fun strawberry shortcake party for my cute niece this past weekend. everything turned out really cute! it was a strawberry shortcake day! now all i see when i close my eyes is strawberry shortcake..hehe!

here’s the invite i made in photoshop…
and here’s the birthday girl, taya !
here’s the strawberry patch where taya opened her gifts…
the blanket is actually a big strawberry shortcake curtain i found on ebay! i had another curtain too {shown later}…
we took strawberry flavored marshmallows and dipped them in chocolate melts to make these cute strawberry pops. we added strawberry malt balls to the tops. really cute and easy!
and here’s the strawberry shortcake cake i made. i had to make it a few days early so it kind of melted and sunk into itself. oh well, it still looked pretty cute…
here’s the strawberry shortcake party hats…
i wrapped the posters in pink feather boa’s to dress them up a bit. so cute!
we made the napkin rings out of strawberry shortcake hair pretties!
here’s the strawberry cupcakes i made…
the other fun cupcakes i made {they were strawberry lemonade cupcakes}…
we put poles out front with balloons attached to them…

i
got these flower pots on orientaltrading.com. they came in white, with an insert that you color {that said, i love you mom, for mothers day}. i took out the inserts and used one as a pattern to make my own strawberry shortcake insert for the kids to color! i took a coloring book and shrunk down a few images to cut and clip :). i then spray painted the inside part of the pot red. they turned out really cute.
and yup, those are strawberry plants. all the kids colored their own insert and planted a strawberry :)…
i saw these a few months back on the asian food section aisle in the grocery store. they’re cute strawberry cream snacks!
the strawberry shortcake kisses {i found the stickers on ebay} and assorted candy…
the martha pom pom tree with the strawberry shortcake birthday banner…i found some adorable strawberry shortcake boxes that i put out on the dessert table…
we put a cute doily and chocolate covered strawberries inside!
i had taya’s picture printed and mounted {iprintcanvas.com…they are AWESOME! i’ve ordered a lot of canvas prints from them too..LOVE}…
the favors
i found most of the favor items on ebay.
we served strawberry crush
and strawberry lemonade in cute strawberry jam jars! we cut up strawberries and added them to the lemonade, and also tied gingham ribbon around each bottle…
here’s what we did with the other strawberry shortcake curtain. we hung it from the patio awning…


here’s some strawberry shortcake window clings i found…they were fun for the kids to paint…

    Wow! Kara this is amazing. I love your attention to detail. My twin girls would have loved this a couple of years ago as they loved Strawberry Shortcake but I think they might be a little too old for it now, they just turned six! Thanks for sharing with us :)

    Very very cute party!! So fun!
    My niece is turning 5 in August and her mom wants me to do a monkey party, but my niece is insisting on a Strawberry Shortcake party! Who wins?? All I know is they better make a decision SOON! :)
    I'm secretly hoping for SS since now I have all these great ideas. :)
