It was our daughter´s third birthday last week and it was the first year she fully grasped what was happening so I decided to let her choose the theme of her birthday party and she went with Gabby´s Dollhouse. It is a tv show on Netflix with a girl living in a dollhouse with a bunch of different cats. Each of them has its own strenght like music, baking, crafts and so much more. I personally think it is a very cute kids show and was pleased she picked out this one.
The Cake Table
I went all crazy for this area and I loved it. Birthday decor should be over the top as well as all over the place. I made a huge balloon arch to throne over the cake table. I always start with the theme and colors first so I browsed through amazon and found the perfect Gabby´s Dollhouse themed balloons. To make the arch a lot fuller I ordered a bunch of unthemed balloons in the right colors as well as a huge purple 3 to incorporate into the arch.
Since the color of our wall did not blend in very nicely with the other colors I got these silver fringe curtains to put behind the table and under the arch and it worked out really well. I definitely liked how it turned out and it added a lot of glitter and dramatic effect to the whole set-up.
The garland has been included in the set of balloons and I worked it into the wall decor. Now since the hanging decor has been finished I moved on to the table. The heart of the table would be the cake so I placed it in the center and onto a purple sequin table cloth and worked my way around. Aren´t sequins just the perfect addition to add sparkle. I love it and use my sequin pieces at every possible event. Gathered quite the collection over the years.
We had a Gabby´s Dollhouse themed cake on her actual birthday. I did not get the same cake for the kids party cause the kids aren´t to fond of the fondant in my opinion. So my MIL made a super cute cat cake and I added some cupcakes into the mix. Overall this was the best decision and it worked out great.
The Grown-Up Table
I have kept the grown-up area pretty simple cause first of all I did not want to take away the focus from the main area and also the parents did not care as much as the little ones. I went with confetti in the matching colors and put it onto the tablecloth like a table runner. I wanted to sprinkle it between the dishes at first but this was a much better idea cause there was not one piece lying on the floor after everyone was gone. The centerpiece of the table has been a huge bouquet of purple tulips. Overall I like the space very much that way. I looked like it belonged to the party but wasn´t too overwhelming.
The Kids Table + Goodie Bags
I made it as easy as possible for the kids table so I got everything made of plastic or paper and threw it all out after the party ended. The Gabby´s Dollhouse paper plated had been a huge hit. I added paper cups and plastic forks and called it a day.
The gift bags got a little more attention (going to share a reel with the inside as well). I decided to go with actual bags from amazon and was very happy that I did not take boxes although the bag were a little smaller than I thought. Nevertheless I made it work and was very pleased with the outcome.
Inside the Gift Bags
Of course the coloring pages had been all Gabby´s Dollhouse themed.
