I wasn't planning on doing a big party this year but I just couldn't help myself. I picked the theme around Christmas and the timing was perfect. I was able to get Christmas clearance for 70% and since the colors for Strawberry Shortcake are red, green and pink, it worked perfectly. I bought lots of pinwheels in red and green and just added pink ones later one. Saved tons of money that way.
