Kara's Party Ideas Night Owl Sleepover Birthday Party | Kara's Party Ideas

I opened up the submission email for this party and fell in love! This NIGHT OWL SLEEPOVER 7TH BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Tash Kimlin of Whimsy Petite Styling is an absolute dream. Every single party element is just so darling. What a fun way for a girl to celebrate her 7th birthday!

Here is what Tash had to say about the party– “My daughter was super keen to have her first sleepover party to celebrate her 7th birthday…who was I to say no! I loved the idea and jumped at the challenge of creating a dreamy atmosphere for the girls to spend their day giggling, having fun and finally falling asleep in.

Beautiful late summer weather meant our generously sized back deck was the perfect spot for the event…it next to the yard and cubby house and ideal for utilising the pool, making the most of the end of season warmth {not to mention a great plan for keeping 6 hyped up children out of the house}.

Sharlize loves owls so naturally she decided on a night owl theme. I decided on a bright and fun colour palette of Fushia, orange and tiffany blue, and was really happy with the outcome.

The 6 girls enjoyed an afternoon of swimming, creating canvas art to take home, playing game, watching movies, having pillow fights and more. each of the guests had their own serving of fish and chips in little boxes for dinner then we watched movies and fell asleep out on the deck under the mosquito net {which proved funny when they kept waking up during the night to check if any owls or possoms had come to visit them}.

We really wanted to bless the girls as it was the first sleep over party any of them had been to, so, they each recieved a special sleepover suitcase filled with goodies including pj’s, toiletries, a diary, pencil, stickers, hair brush and a specially made owl so snuggle up with at bed time. The delight on their faces was priceless when they opened them, like they had opened a box full of treasure.”
