My girl loves Lalaloopsy! Her bedroom has been taken over by these quirky little dolls and their fun pets and accessories. Ok, if I'm honest, our entire house if overflowing with Lalaloopsy love. So the theme for this year's birthday party has been decided since the day after last year's birthday party. (Merida still has a strong presence around here, too, in case you were wondering. My girl is loyal to her collections!)
Lalaloopsy may be the easiest party to decorate for. Lalaloopsy is built around sewing and repurposing. So that's how I decorated. I gathered thread and yarn and old flower pots and bowls. And, of course, I brought in all of the birthday girl's Lalaloopsy collection to finish it all off.
For treats I played with the names of some of the Lalaloopsy friends. We had Mango's Tiki Punch, Dot's Garden of Stars, Bubble Smack n Pop's gumballs, a Lala-Oopsy mini fairy cake, Crumb Sugar Cookie's button cookies, Lalaloopsy yarn, and Cloud E Sky's ferris wheel in the clouds cake.
As guests arrived they were welcomed with coloring sheets and treat bag decorating. Everyone was asked to guess how many buttons were in Harmony B. Sharp's jar of buttons. And, of course, the doll house provided entertainment for all ages.
Since Lalaloopsies are "sewn" together, I knew I wanted to make a sewing craft. We made Crumb Sugar Cookie's pet mouse. To prep the craft I cut out the shapes and added eyes ahead of time. Since we had a wide range of ages, I also punched holes along the felt to make it easy for our younger guests to follow along. The finished mice were so cute and everyone had so much fun making them!
Every year my kids get their own personal birthday cake before we share a bigger cake with everyone else. It's a treat they look forward to and guard from their siblings for the rest of their birthday week! Sicily's personal cake was topped with two new Lala-Oopsy mini fairies. She also got a few new Lalaloopsy friends as gifts. (We're going to have to build them their own room soon!)
At the end of the party we gathered on the couch with popcorn and pretzels to watch "Lala-Oopsy: A Sew Magical Tale". It was the perfect way to end a great party. The birthday girl had "sew" much fun! And really does anything else matter. I love this girl and her lalaloopsy loving spirit. Happy Birthday Sicily La Sweet!
