Sweet Dreams Birthday Party: A Slumber Party Dream Come True

My daughter just turned nine, and for her birthday she begged to have her first ever slumber party. Of course, being the mom in this deal, I was hesitant. I remember slumber parties—we were loud, obnoxious and not a lot of slumbering was going on when I was attending them! But I took a deep breath and realized this was my chance to help her make some amazing childhood memories with her best friends (while still hoping they would actually sleep at some point!).

With that thought in mind, I started planning this Sweet Dreams Birthday, hoping at some point the dreamy atmosphere and serene color scheme would help send the girls into a deep sleep. I’m excited to share all the dreamy details with you!

Clouds, moons and stars, oh my! I started designing graphics with the night sky in mind and used a beautiful color palette of pinks and purples. I coordinated everything from the invitations to the dessert table backdrop and all the graphics to bring the theme together.

The birthday girl wore her beautiful Tutu du Monde dress that we had previously purchased and we found a beautiful star headbad to go with her theme.

The dessert table was decorated with an iridescent sequin tablecloth and balloon garland. I selected balloons in sunset hues and shades of white to echo clouds at sunset.

Strawberry cake and lemon cupcakes were the birthday girl’s choice of desserts. Our printable toppers kept all the desserts coordinated with our theme.

Chocolate candies from Party City in apothecary jars were adorned with printable customizable labels.

The best thing about the Sweet Dreams backdrop is that it can double as room decoration after the party’s over.  Ours is now hanging in Annabelle’s bedroom over her bed.

I paired star straws, plates, napkins and favor bags from Martha Stewart’s new Cotton Candy collection with iridescent party plates and cups by Talking Tables. We layered the iridescent round plates over the star plates and set each place with the favor bag filled with goodies. Cloud shaped “Sweet Dreams” tags top each favor bag.

What better party favors for a slumber party than sleep masks? And they don’t get much cuter than these unicorn sleep masks! Our favor bags were also filled with star and moon metallic tattoos, star glow sticks and candies.

Overall the party was a dream (and the girls actually went to bed at a reasonable hour!). This was such a fun theme and color scheme to design around, and the girls loved it all!
