Deacon’s DIY Peppa Pig 3rd Birthday Party
My little boy absolutely loves Peppa Pig, and after he got Peppa’s house and camper van for Christmas and played with the toys every.single.day., it became obvious that Peppa would be the perfect choice for his party this year!
I always do a lot of DIY elements for my kids’ parties, but this one required pretty much 100% DIY decor because most Peppa decorations are girly. I didn’t mind at all and got straight to work as soon as I settled on the color scheme- yellow! Yellow is so bright and cheery and there is a good bit of yellow surrounding Peppa Pig, so it was perfect.
Everything turned out exactly as I hoped it would and my little boy absolutely loved it.
As guests entered we snapped a quick picture of them with the birthday boy and printed it right away for the display board. We had a photobooth with an oversized picture frame, oversized Peppa car, and pig noses. I also designed a Snapchat filter for everyone to use when they posted their pics, and family members each wore a Peppa shirt I designed and made with iron on transfers. Everyone enjoyed mingling and “pigging out” on some delicious food and treats.
We had 18 adults and 15 kids at the party. We served a variety of picnic type foods, and the kids enjoyed a few games, jumping on the trampoline, and of course, the piñata!
As the party ended, we were sure to give the littles their favors and everyone left with their picture from the beginning of the party.
We had a GREAT time. My advice would be to not let what could be a “girly” theme stop you from throwing a great “boy” party! I also advise planning ahead, having your decorations done before the day of the party, and choosing a menu that doesn’t require you to actually do any cooking during the party so that you can mingle with your guests.
