When I asked Hailey what kind of birthday party she wanted she knew right away...Shopkins!! What are Shopkins?? You can click here for the Shopkins Website.
Shopkins decorations that you can buy at the party store don't exist! So it was up to me to get crafty!
There are no Shopkins clothing items available so I made an iron on for Hailey and it was pretty perfect, and it was pink!
I was able to find Donut shaped balloons on Amazon and made a donut Shopkin. Hailey was very impressed! *So was I !!*
An easy, fun decoration was Shopkins Crazy Straws! Easy!
Through the Icing Smiles Organization we were given a cake that was made by Ms. Renee who we call a Sugar Angel. She made the cake and decorated it just for Hailey.
More easy and fun decorations were some M&Ms in tube containers with Shopkins stickers (that I printed) Hailey loved the fun, bright colors!
I think the main decorations were the Shopkins Blind Baskets that were EXTREMELY HARD to find! I actually had to pick these up at a Target that was 191 miles away from our HOUSE! When Hailey saw this it was like she won the lottery! Such a happy girl!
Shopkins manufacturer is Moose Toys. Another item from Moose Toys are BEADOS. These were set up as the craft activity for the kids and I've never had the house so quiet! Concentration was a must!
This is a great fun for Hailey who goes to Occupational Therapy. Lots of hand eye coordination and anything that helps Hailey's brain communication with her body is a plus! This was a perfect activity!
More home made decorations. Balloons and stickers. Perfect!
I even made a Shopkins cupcake stand with the help of some printables off the Shopkins website. This was a HUGE hit. Some even had Shopkins on top and those were picked first...Whoda guessed? *Wink*
Tablescapes are SO much fun and so easy to do. Here are a few decorations I put together:
The day wasn't ALL Shopkins. Hailey is really into Tsum Tsums which are just as hard to find but thanks to great family Hailey got one as a gift!
It's really hard to find shoes for Hailey since she wears AFO's (Ankle Foot Orthotics) and she really loved her Peach's Neet Feet Shoes. I was inspired to give this challenge my best try. One day when/if I ever get to the point where I'm good enough I really want to paint a pair of shoes for Peach's Neet Feet. These are the Shopkins Shoes I painted by hand for Hailey for her birthday. She loved them!
Instead of gifts and birthday presents for Hailey we wanted people to help us donate to our local Ronald McDonald House. We collected so much stuff! Lots of toiletries and lots of toys. We spent time at the Ronald McDonald House in Salt Lake when Hailey had her Pacemaker surgery in January and we know they could really use the help and we were happy to be able to do this.
Happy Birthday Hailey! We love you TONS and TONS and we hope you had so much fun and that you enjoyed your day. We know how happy you are to be turning 7 and we are even happier. You are the most amazing daughter and you give the best hugs!
