Brielle has been begging me for a playdate with a few of her friends and when I asked her what kind she wanted she quickly replied “PINK”! I’ve seen so many amazing Rudolph the Reindeer parties this year that I thought it’d be fun to do one too but instead of the traditional red and blues I’ve been seeing I’d seriously girl it up! It reminds me of Clarice, his girlfriend. I kept my palette to light browns, pink, sage green and gold and it was the perfect little girl’s party!
I set it up in her playroom because I have this awesome wall that I had painted for when it was the nursery. I had my SIL Jenn, who is crazy talented, paint it and it came out exactly as I had hoped. It mimics tree bark in a more whimsical way so I thought it’d compliment the party really well
For food Shelly Rice Krispy squares with these darling reindeer faces on them.
As well as chocolate milk because really, when can you have too much chocolate?
My dear friend Brenda did my milk bottle labels, I gave her my colors and from there she just killed it! This is her Etsy store
Instead of Rudolph red we did pink for the noses. They were a big hit!
A month or so ago I saw these gold glitter reindeer in the scrapbook section at Michael’s and scooped them right up. I wasn’t sure what I was going to use them for but when I got these gold polka dot straws I hot glued the reindeer onto them and they fit perfectly!
The banner is actually reindeer ornament kits from Hobby Lobby. I changed out the scarf color and used gold ribbon. Then hot glued them to a heavy duty pink ribbon
For our activity we made Reindeer food kits for each of them to take home
I made the sign up in Photoshop and tweaked a few things on a poem I’ve seen around Pinterest
We used green sparkles, oats, mini chocolate chips and pink glitter. The gold glitter cupcake liners (from Zurchers) were the perfect size to handle our small group of 4
Now my favorite…the cake! Again, done by my favorite baker Shelly! She’s so great to work with, I send her my colors and a few pictures I like and every.single.time she nails it! This cute lady reindeer is a 4 layer chocolate and vanilla bean cake with a whipped chocolate ganache as frosting. I wish SO badly I had been able to take a picture of the inside because the vanilla layers were pink and green! Sadly, I was too busy trying to keep chocolate off my carpet though as those little girls absolutely devoured it!
Funny story, that nose isn’t the original one. I got it from Shelly and put it in the fridge until the party the next day. Multiple times I told Brielle, “Do NOT touch that cake!” and every time she replied ok. We’d gotten up early the day of the party and were watching cartoons when she kept going to get things out of the kitchen to eat and every time, I reminded her not to touch the cake. She promised and promised she didn’t until she slipped up and replied, “It still just as yummy” I raced to the fridge and there it was, noseless, with several of the pink balls missing and fingerprints throughout the frosting. (insert sob) I did my best to fix it and eventually just stuck a small ornament there as her nose! Ugh…good thing we ADORE our kids huh!?
Along with the milk labels Brenda did my custom confetti. It added just that extra special touch and the girls LOVED playing with it
Napkins, milk bottles and pink forks from Oriental Trading
Reindeer from Wal-Mart. Trees from Hobby Lobby and Michaels
These were the favors we gave out. They’re pull back racing reindeer. The girls had such a blast racing them in the kitchen! I made the card and the racers were from Oriental Trading
We had such a fun day! I love that Brielle loves parties just as much as her momma!
