Girly Emoji Party

My youngest daughter Hannah turned the big 10 this past April…yay! We celebrated with a super girly emoji party in pinks, gold, white and yellow. Hannah was super involved in every detail for this party. She is my princess girly girl and loved finding things for this party. Enjoy the loaded post with photos and all details with credits and vendors are at the end of this post!

If you missed Hannah’s popular parties the last few years, here’s a list:

Invitation & Party Printables

I loved the work from Just a Little Sparkle etsy shop. Alyssa has a beautiful Emoji party invitation and printables that were the perfect design for this party. She was super sweet and customized the colors for Hannah. She also designed the candy tent tags, favor tags, party circles, big poster behind the desserts table and other signs for the party.

The Party Outfit

Hannah picked out her custom made shirt and pink tutu skirt from Great Stitch. Brenda and I have worked with party outfits in the past. She is the one who also made the Mermaid tanks for each little girl back in 2015. Hannah’s necklace is from Bowtiful Blessings etsy shop. Big sister, Ashley wore an Emoji t-shirt and white shorts from Justice.

Emoji Party Decorations

Many months ago we were at Hannah’s favorite clothing store, Justice and she found the cutest plates and napkins on clearance for her party. However, most of the party decorations came from Party City including the balloons, party favors for each little girl, pink buckets, plushy emojis, photo props, pitcher, cups, plates, silverware and more! My mom made the Emoji Pinata and you can buy one from her etsy shop, Party House Pinatas.

Other decorations such as table runners, ribbon garland, birthday banner, foam glittery signs and photo booth was made by yours truly.  You can find items listed in my etsy shop, A to Zebra Celebrations. The foam photo frame for pics I only sell local because of its size and would cost a lot to ship.

Desserts Table

My go to girls for desserts, cookies and cake are Breanna and Bonnie from Inspired Sugar. I have been working with them for the past 7 years. I love their work and the taste of their sweets is delish! I highly recommend them.

Party Activities

Hannah has been obsessed with slime for the past year and she LOVES making it. She requested to have a “Slime Station” table and invite her friends to make some fun slime. I aim to please when it comes to parties 😉 The girls had a blast making their slime. We played musical chairs, had a raffle, hit the emoji pinata and listened to fun music!

And that’s a wrap my friends! Until next birthday for my daughter Ashley in October!….it will be here before I know it!

Best,
