Party Recap

We chose a Night Owl Pajama Party theme for my daughter's 5th Birthday. I was SO excited to find that Oriental Trading Company had an owl collection of party supplies that I liked. I ordered some of it and then used the owls and the colors as the theme for my invitation and all the party decor!

She was allowed to invite 10 friends to join her and her sister for some fun. 3 of the friends slept over, the other 7 were picked up and went home. We had a lot of fun!

We started with dinner. Then we moved outside for some fun games and activites that included"

glow necklaces and bracelets
owl craft
light up balloons

Then we moved back inside for cake and presents. Finally in the last half hour before the parents arrived we hit the backyard again for sparklers! The girls REALLY loved this! It was a HUGE hit!

After the girls who weren't sleeping over went home, the rest of us set up our beds and blankets in the playroom and settled in with popcorn and a movie. They were all asleep by 11:15 and slept till 7:15.

This momma survived and got pretty luck I would say :) Enjoy the photos!
