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…

    So. Many. Cute. Ideas. My head is exploding! I'm working on my daughter's 5th birthday party right now, and just love what you did for this party. The lemonade in jam jars – what size jars are those? 32oz?

    You have me soo many great ideas. My daughter is turning 3 in march and wants a strawberry shortcake party. I was wondering where you got the pink and red pom poms that are hanging on the tree. Those are great party decorations!

    ksuch,

    thank you! you could have the kids help you make homemade strawberry jam! there are a lot of jam recipes that are pretty easy. you could get cute jam bottles to put the jam in for them to take home.
