Over the weekend, I held a Project Runway Birthday Party for my daughter’s 9th birthday. I got many ideas from Pinterest and came up with a few myself.
First was the invitations. I purchased a runway stock image to create it.
When guests arrived they were greeted by a sign and given a backstage pass.
The first design challenge was an unconventional challenge, where the girls were given kitchen trash bags, bubble wrap, tissue paper, curling ribbon, and duck tape to create an outfit. The girls loved walking down the (paper) runway that I set up.
Next we had the doll challenge, which was a HUGE hit! I loved the creativity! They spent the most time on this challenge.
The fashions were fantastic and the girls took them home on their dolls.
Then we had a freestyle challenge, where the girls made themselves an outfit with fabric. I had a huge bolt of a teal fabric that most picked to use.
The final challenge was a cookie design. I made dress shaped cookies. The girls iced them and then decorated them with sprinkles. I loved their creativity!! I had cello bags for the girls to take their cookies home.
We also did two crafts that I found on Pinterest. One was Braided T-Shirt Bracelets which I found at Crafts by Amanda and the other was Homemade Lip Gloss which I found at Classy Mommy.
Refreshments included Layered Punch which I found at Big Bear’s Wife and Surprise Cupcakes that I found at Sweet Tooth.
We also had a photobooth. I printed the birthday quotes from Capturing Joy.
The party was 3 hours long and we fit all those activities in PLUS had time to open gifts. I had a schedule written out and kept them to it!! It took me a few days to recover, but it was worth it. The girls had a BLAST!!!
This greeted the guests as they left! It’s supposed to be Heidi Klum kissing them goodbye! LOL!
