DIY Crafty Birthday Party

My daughter’s birthday was this past weekend, I have been planning her party for quite some time. Last year we had a Princess Tea Party, I wanted to do something different. I finally came up with a DIY Crafty Birthday Party. A fun party with different activities for the kids to keep busy with.

Over the past month I had slowly been preparing for the party. I spent hours on Pinterest, pinning to my board Birthday Ideas for Kids. I finally found some DIY projects to create the perfect DIY Crafty Birthday party.

I decided to make a paint splatter cake with homemade fondant and butter cream. I had never made fondant or Butter Cream before and had no idea how to make it. The recipe I used was simple and easy to make, my daughter loved them both. I wasn’t able to put as many paint splatters on the cake as wanted, due to pain in my hands. I did what I could and it turned out great.

This year I printed off some invites for my daughter to take to school on the last day. We handed out about 8 invites, with an RSVP for August 10. We had not received any notification that any of her school friends would be attending. I explained to my daughter that it was summer and that sometimes families are busy, so the kids may not come. She was fine with that. We had 4 kids and they all had a blast. (none from her class) I just wish that parents would RSVP, so that the parents who are planning a party can make the proper arrangements.

  1. Looks like it was an awesome party! It’s amazing how much time and effort we put into parties for our little ones isn’t it? But it’s so worth it!
