Slumber Party!



Wanna come to a slumber party? I had so much fun putting together my newest party theme. I was inspired by so many blogs that I just wanted to share.
First, the table is made up like a bed. I got the idea from Hostess with the Mostess from one of her baby showers. I got the duvet cover, sheet and pillowcase from IKEA all for $15. The solid green is a plastic tablecloth to protect the table from spills.

I bought TALL glass cylinders and filled them with gumballs and added some festive flowers.
Another inspiration from Stem Parties.

Robyn over at Mix Mingle Glow showed some fabulous St. Patrick's Day tables on a budget.
She featured these great swirl bowls from Michael's that are $1 each.
I thought they would be perfect for popcorn or morning cereal.
I found the drink tub at WalMart for $6 and bought Gatorade in the coordinating colors.
If I had time (LOL), I would have gone to Cost Plus to buy Jones Soda in coordinating colors. :)

One of the activities for the slumber party is to stuff Teddy Bears to sleep with. Of course, the guests will be able to choose from an array of different pajamas for their bear.

I put candy bracelets around the stem of the glasses.
A great tip from Risa at the ParTea Planner.

I found these giant candy pillows at Party America for $10 each.
I made the other pillow slipcovers with fabric from Wal Mart.
Pillow fight anyone?

Of course, no slumber party is complete without a game of Twister!
I will also be offering popcorn and cookie dough to make fresh, hot cookies. There will be a nail kit to give each other manicures and a candy bean bag toss game. I will also have an option for breakfast of pancake mix or ready-made muffins and orange juice.
Thanks for coming to my slumber party!

Ok...so I saw the inspiration table at Hostess with the Mostess and I have to tell you that although I love most all of the stuff there, that was one tablescape I just didn't really like....but yours....I LOVE IT! It's just amazing! I love it!!! The colors, the details, the fun! One thing I thought was funny was how you bought gatorade to match the colors of the party...forget the taste ~ match the colors. :) And the gumball cylinders...mmmm!!
Sounds like a very very fun party. Great ideas!

I love this! Mary Ashley and I are already talking about plans for her 6th birthday, and we are thinking slumber party too. I saw the idea of making the table look like a bed on Hostess with the Mostess too and loved it. Your tablescape is so fun and fresh! Now I'm even more excited about planning a sleepover!
