Kara's Party Ideas 'Almost Sleepover' Birthday Party | Kara's Party Ideas

This adorable ALMOST SLEEPOVER BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Ellen Bessette of Ellen Bessette Events. I just love the fun sparkly and pink vibe the party gives. Any little girl- young, tween, or old would love to be at this celebration.

Ellen said– “An almost sleepover party is where the girls come to the party in their PJ’s and pretend to have a slumber party and then return home around 9pm without sleeping over.

Design Inspiration: My daughter saw a cake on One Charming Party and the party was centered around that design- pink, girly and bling!

Activities: For a craft, we decorated door hangers with glitter glue and foamies and made pink/white crystal bracelets (supplies from Michael’s). We also had a beauty bar set up on a nightstand with nail polish, eye shadow, lip gloss, tiara’s and necklaces. The pillow fight was the most popular activity. And the girls danced to WII Dance Party 2.

Project Tips: DIY centerpieces using Blumeboxes and party printables from Frog Prince Paperie. The dessert table was dressed up using the party printables. Food labels, cupcake wrappers to dress up plain cupcake wrappers, bottled water turned from ordinary to not so ordinary, snack boxes to dress up chocolate covered pretzels and green apple flavored popcorn and I made two more centerpieces to tie in the theme. Back drop for the dessert table was made using pomettes from PomFlair. Use props that you already have: I used the furniture straight out of my daughters’ rooms to really set the tone. Their beds were the tables, night stand was the beauty bar and their dresser was the dessert table. Also, I perked up the entrance to the party with pink feather wreaths on my front doors where I purchased Styrofoam wreaths from Michaels and wrapped a feather boa around it. Place cards can also double as the party favor. I had personalized pillowcases made for party favors and I rolled them up, tied a ribbon around it and put them on top of their place settings so the girls knew where to sit and then they had a fun take home party favor. Dress up plain chairs with tulle or ribbon. And tie your flatware with coordinating ribbon.”

    Are there any slumber party ideas for tomboys? I’m not a girly girl and these sound disgusting to me.

    For tom boy things I’d do stuff like capture the flag through the woods, and other fun activities with a camp-out at the end…
