I threw Annabelle her third birthday party over the weekend, and it was perfect! Annabelle loves "Shaun the Sheep", so I based my party theme around the show. Honestly, I haven't seen many good "Shaun the Sheep" parties online, so I contacted a bunch of awesome vendors to throw an awesome, one-of-a-kind "Shaun the Sheep" party!
I started with these pom poms. I made them by hand, and they were surprisingly easy. If I can make them, you can make them. It's a basic pom pom, but I didn't fluff them into a full circle. Just a half circle.
I then just took black and white card stock, and made some general sheep head outlines from screenshots of the show.
The "Shaun the Sheep" website had some awesome templates and ideas, so I took white yarn, along with their printable heads and legs, and made some cute yarn pom-pom sheep!
They were cute, but they were pretty tedious to make.
As you can see, I used tissue paper grass on the table. I searched EVERYWHERE for a good tissue paper grass, and I couldn't find it anywhere. I finally stumbled upon www.shindigz.com, who stocked the tissue paper grass, along with some of the goodies for the goody bags, including the animal finger puppets and the farm stickers.
I love making goodie bags. And BisonBleu worked with me to create all the printables for this party. The little boxes were perfect for my theme, and they were so easy to put together! She also created the banner, the water bottle wraps, candy bar wraps, thank you tags, invites, and cupcake toppers (Which I ended up putting on the serving utensils) BisonBleu is one of the best in the party planning biz. No joke. All her work is wonderfully detailed. There's no end to her creativity, and I am so honored to work with her!
The "Sheep Poop" is Raisinets, and the fake grass in the mason jars is green Twizzlers pulled apart. They were a huge hit! (What three year old doesn't think poop is funny?)
I also scored these milk bottles for sweet tea at 50% off at Hobby Lobby. They fit right in with the theme.
The cake and cupcakes came from Confused Confections in Lexington, Kentucky. They were a dream to work with, and gave me exactly what I was looking for!
In addition to the great goodie bags, each kid got a party hat from PAPALOTES. Honestly, these were some of my favorite things at the party! Her work is incredible. She has a hat for any occasion/theme! She's simply wonderful.
I decided to do two games during the party. Pin the tail on Shaun...
(Which was incredibly hard to draw free handed)
And a pinata! I made this pinata from scratch, and I used 2 different layers of paper mache. I purposefully did it light hoping it would break easily, but that sucker wouldn't break for anything! We had to do it inside due to the weather, and thankfully nobody was hurt. LOL. I went a little overboard with the candy. That pinata weighed every bit of 40 lbs!
I also included these cute cookies in the goodie bags. They're from a new retailer on Etsy, TheSweetBCookies. Not only are they cute, but they were soft and yummy as well! The kids loved them. She's got incredible attention to detail when it comes to the cookies, and she has a huge number of designs available, along with custom cookies.
So cute, right?
Annabelle loved her party, as you can see, and it was so much fun to throw! I want to give a huge thank you to each vendor that I worked with for this party. Feel free to check them out below!
