This week, I commissioned my friend Vicky that I knew from high school to talk a little bit about her son, Jake’s 1st birthday which was Yo Gabba Gabba themed! Seeing his party on Facebook is actually what inspired this Party Planning Showcase feature, so I thank you for that, Vicky!! Check out these ADORABLE ideas and some of her thoughts on how to make a party great!
*Bought a backdrop for pictures with some of the characters and instead of using the happy birthday sign that came with it, I made my own the same size, again with Gabba symbols and characters
*Got a Gabba CD of songs and played throughout, including during musical chairs
*Made a Brobee watermelon head…one of the things I was most excited about and so happy it came out good. watermelon was out of season so was a little more expensive than I would have liked to spend but it was worth it!
*Character party hats: printed characters’ main features, cut and glued on plain party hats…a lot of work but much cheaper and cuter!
*Confetti on tables since the beginning and end of the show DJ Lance drops confetti on the characters
*I got a Muno shirt and Jake wore a Brobee shirt…even got my nails painted each with a different color haha – LOVE that!
*Invitations were homemade on publisher with the characters and Jake photoshopped in hanging with them
*One thing I didn’t do just because of time and I saw it too late was Muno pretzel rods…pretzel rod dipped in red chocolate and then decorated with an eye and sprinkles! looked so cute
