Strawberry Themed Party for our FIVE Year Old!

Bean, age 5.  This year we had a tiny family party with 5 of her little friends.  We had a blast!!
Party Table, full of desserts representing the Strawberry Shortcake Characters...Strawberry Shortcake, Blueberry Muffin, Lemon Meringue, and Rainbow Sherbet!

Strawberry Pedicure
Strawberry Birthday Cake
Little guests and little sisters enjoying the treats
Decorations for the party, made by Bean.
 
Kid-Made:  Party favors for her 5 guests!


Ready for the Rainbow Relay!  It's a fun party/group game where each child gets a color, and has to paint onto the right spot to cover that stripe in the rainbow.  Then, the next person can go.  The first team to finish the entire rainbow wins!  The guests decided to go at the same time, so no one really won.  How sweet!
Rainbow Relay excitement


 
Finished Rainbow Relay, with decorative embellishments!

We HAD to paint the boulder with the extra paints...

How sweet! Unfortunately my 3 boys wouldn't go for such a sweet, adorable party idea. I think small personal parties are a wonderful celebration of their life and their close friendships. Well done!

So cute! One of the downsides of having three boys - it is hard to do cute birthday parties!

Oh, I'm loving this! Rainbow Relay sounds like a great party game! We recently did a "pin the ladybug on the flower" game, and the kids were all helping each other as well, so everyone was a winner! Thank you so much for sharing this with us. It looks so fun!
