Britnie's 5th B-day

Anna P By Anna P  in Birthday


Party Recap

Our daughter was really into 'Pretend Shopping" this past year. She was set on the idea of having a Mini Market Theme for her 5th Birthday. I consider myself to be pretty crafty but I was almost intimated to go with this theme. After a lot of research on the internet;it didn't take me long to get my ideas rolling. This website was very inspiring

After months of planning and making everything for the Market; it turned out great. It was a different theme but everyone had a blast! Hope this inspires you to throw your little one their very own Mini Market Party.

Party Highlights

  • Desserts

    Birthday Cake

  • Activities / Games

    Grand Opening Ceremony complete with Ribbon cutting, Pretend Shopping as customers then reverse roles to employees to re-stock the store. We also had a canvas wallets for the kiddos to decorate using fabric markers. This doesn't really go have anything to do the party but I guess I should mention that our daughters B-day party happen to fall on the same day of Texas Longhorns football game; so needless to say that my husband took his flat screen TV. I wasn't to thrilled on the idea but since he had been a big help with all the planning and allowed me to have no budget I went with it. To my surprise all the dads were very grateful and no one left early.

  • Best Moment

    Seeing all the kids and parent faces admire all the decor. It was worth all the sleepless nights knowing that everyone had a good time.

  • What People Ate

    "Bee Hive Deli" served Chicken Tenders, corn dogs, Chili, Nachos, french fries, fried burritos, mashed potatoes, and mac & cheese. We went with foods available at our Grocery Deli. We had 3 deep fryers and double crock pot so the food was served hot.

  • What People Drank

    Orange and Lemonade Gatorade's, bottle water and soda

  • Funniest Moment

    Ribbon cutting ceremony...we used red streamer as the ribbon. I purchased wooden art decor scissors from Hobby Lobby. I took off the hanging hook and painted the blades silver and the the handles blue. Although they didn't cut they were super cute. Looking for pic to post later.

  • Most Touching Moment

    I put a $5 off coupon to encourage kids to bring their push shopping carts.o the party. I loved seeing all the kids that brought their push carts. It was cute seeing all the kids take turns sharing. I planned on buying a couple for the kiddos to share but instead I bought plastic caddies to use as hand shopping baskets from Dollar Tree online.
