My niece Brooklyn just had a Golden birthday. She turned 6 on January 6th! When planning her birthday party we took inspiration from my niece Quinn's party because she too had her Golden birthday this year! I helped my sister Jen throw the party for Brooklyn. We had so much fun thinking for gold details, food, and games for the party. We decided to add pops of pink in the color scheme. The party was a major success!
Balloons: A was ballon tied to each chair that each guest got to take home.
They were Stoked about getting a balloon!
Giant Confetti: For the table we cute out giant confetti and scattered them on the table.
Votives: Gold votives found at Target.
Party Hats: Gold Crown party hats (my sister Annie mailed us the left overs from Quinn's party!)
Centerpiece: The dessert was the centerpiece. The cupcakes looked so pretty and had gold sprinkles and tall gold candles.
Garland: We used the same garland we made for my Mom's party but took out the silver tissue paper and added more gold!
When the party guests arrived we had them go to the craft table and decorated a crown that would be used later for 'Pin the Crown on Brooklyn.' There was glitter, gems, letter stickers, etc.
Dinner is served! Jen made homemade macaroni and cheese in ramekin dishes. She also had a platter of veggies and a platter of fruit. The macaroni was delicious!!! But the sad truth is, kids just don't eat that much at parties and we ended up throwing most of it away :(. But they did all want 2 cupcakes. haha.
After dinner we had them split into 2 groups. Older brothers Jackson and Tanner took one group to dance to Just Dance 3 on the Wii. The girls loooved it!! They took the dancing very seriously. ha!
Older sister Saylor took the other group to play 'Pin the Crown on Brooklyn.'
When girls were done pinning the crown they could get their nails painted glittery gold!
After each group was done with their activity, they swapped.
Cake time. While they ate cupcakes she opened presents.
The girls were soo excited about the pinata. (see the darling behind the pinata holding herself!) The sad part was that the pinata wasn't taped well enough at the bottom and with one hit, it opened. I think they were bummed they didn't get a swing, but that didn't last long because there was gold candy to pick up!
Brooklyn's Dad set up the photo booth. Always grateful to have a photographer at a party!!
Favors: gold and pink candy, bracelet, and gold mardi gras necklace.
I was so happy with how the party turned out. Jen is a wonderful host too, relaxed and so organized.
