Emoji Birthday Party for Our 8 Year Old Daughter
When our daughter turned 8, she wanted an emoji birthday party. So we did. She’ll be turning 9 soon, Lord’s Willing, so I wanted to slow down on holiday posting (or rather before getting into them) to t share these photos that I have not shared. I used to share our kids birthday more frequently but now it seems like those have gone by the wayside as holiday sharing sort of took over:(
This Emoji party was so much fun putting together and she really enjoyed it. Here she was having fun with the gifts we got her and eating yummy pancakes for breakfast before heading off to school. I wanted to capture a few photos before she left they turned out a little dark since it was so early in the morning…. during the winter. I guess it was technically still Fall but we had a ton of snow on the ground.
I created these invitations and I think they turned out quite well, if I may say so myself:) What do you think? I have to admit though, that it took me a while to get everything to line up properly but it helped that I started on them early. I wanted the invites to go out to the kids before Thanksgiving break from school since our daughter’s birthday party was soon after.
We placed a couple balloons on the porch so guests would know which house to go to for the party. I mean, they would have the address but adding the balloons would help it to be easily recognizable. Plus it was fun to do that. She usually has snowy birthdays!
Emoji Birthday Party Decorations
The decor was a mix of store-bought and handmade. I shared tutorials of how I made some of the decorations and props here in this post. The banner, balloons, large blow-up 8 and hanging item from the light costed around $10 or less. But the DIY’s helped out a lot plus they were very easy to make. See the tutorials here.
The blow-up 8 balloon was a little off-color for the theme but I didn’t find the color I was going for. I found it at Walmart. I didn’t want to make another trip to a different store to buy an expensive balloon so I thought I would get this one. I ended up getting 2 more for our other kids birthdays, too.
This next emoji was a “Pin the Face to the Emoji” prop I made. See the tutorial here. When we were deciding on games we thought this would be a fun twist off “Pin the Tail on the Donkey”.
All the emoji decor on the wall were handmade and easy. Don’t forget to check out this link to see how easy they were to make. I really loved how they turned out. I mean, how can you not smile at these cute facial expressions?!
Emoji Birthday Craft
The kids made emoji pillows for their craft. You can find how they made them here. They turned out real cute despite my last minute hiccup in trying to find the pieces to put them together. Find the tutorial here.
We had about 14 little girls and our boy at the party, most of them classmates and others siblings, friends, and a few from the neighbourhood. Wow, that was really something!! But I guess they had fun anyways! Their parents seemed happy to drop them off to get a little break, haha! I think I may have some photos of the kids on my phone from the event but these are just a couple I found on my Camera.
The kids brought so much gifts and not just any random gifts. It’s like they actually picked out some great ones that they thought our daughter might enjoy. We’re talking gifts like emoji hats, leggings and shirt to go along with it, scrabble game, art and painting set, barbie pools, large LOL doll set, etc. We were truly amazed at what they picked out.
All happy smiles from her birthday and from what she got. Doll and Emoji pillow were some of what she got from us:)
