I just threw the grooviest Peace, Love, Party birthday celebration for my girls’ 5th birthday. This was a peace sign toting, hippie at heart’s dream come true. I included everything from smiley faces to daisies and peace signs and even came up with a little rhyme to tie the theme into the girls’ age: Bring the good vibes, Rowe & Leni are 5!
Here are the details so you can throw your very own flower power bash:
I created this invitation in Canva, per usual. I designed the daisy peace sign as a separate graphic, and then added it in to the invitation design template. I’m so happy with how it turned out. I just save as a PNG file and text it to family and friends. That way, no money on stamps!
Are these not the cutest bell bottoms? I got the girls’ pants from Bailey’s Blossoms (with a bunch of other cute stuff) and my mom made their shirts with her Cricut. I even bought myself a new daisy skirt from Shein!
Banner & Pennants
My mom made this happy birthday banner based on something I found on Etsy and the little pennant flag banner I believe I saw on Pinterest.
I love the little details like the VW bugs, peace signs, smileys and rainbows. The flags had cute, themed phrases like Groovy, Flower Power and Be Kind.
Cake & Cake Topper
Per usual, my mom made this awesome cake topper with her Cricut, and I made the cake using a couple boxes of Pilsbury Funfetti cake mix (dyed pink with food coloring), and frosted with yellow frosting. To top it all of I added some sparkle with an adorable flower sprinkle mix.
Because my girls love chocolate so much I had to also make chocolate cupcakes, which I topped with cute toppers. Peace signs, rainbows, Be Kind and more topped these cupcakes to keep with the theme.
How freaking cute is this balloon arch with daisy balloons?! I got this off of Etsy from ChicBalloonBoutique and am so happy with how it turned out. Definitely a statement piece.
VW Van Photo Prop
This cute photo prop was a last minute creation inspired by Pinterest. Thanks to purchasing new patio furniture we had a large cardboard box and I already had paint and foil on hand!
I am currently obsessed with these DIY felt wands. At first I was just going to make them for my girls but then I got this crazy idea to make them for all of the little guests. It was a bigger commitment than I realized but O got the job done! I made pink or white daisies for the girls and smiley faces for the boys. I added some sequins to make them fancy and yarn and tulle as well.
These are probably one of my favorite DIYs and it was so easy! I bought these flower sunglasses on Amazon and the letter beads and daisy buttons from Hobby Lobby. I got glued them on and boil!
I had so much fun putting together these goodie bags! Here is what was included
- Daisy wand
- Flower sunglasses
- Hippie tattoos
- Flower crown
- Smiley face pencils
- Peace necklace
- Smiley face wand
- Smiley face slinky
- Smiley face pencils
Everything was a hit and I had so much fun with this theme! Now to take a break from birthday parties for awhile.
