P is for Pajama Party - Creative and Simple Birthday Party Theme

We had a Pajama Party all centered around the letter P (thanks to my friend Katie for the idea). The girls all showed up in pajamas and we virtually had a sleepover without them sleeping over. The order of activities:

1-Party music (karaoke)
2-Party games (Categories, Do you Love your Neighbor?)
3- Pizza and Pop
4- Polka-dot cake and pink ice cream
5- Presents
6 - Pinata
7 - Pillow making Project
8 - Princess movie with Popcorn and nail painting

Pretty simple, I know.  But it did the job.  I used strawberry whoppers for the polka-dots and some strawberry long candy that I found for the bows/ribbon.

Fingernails were a hit!
The pillows the girls all made.  I just cut squares of fleece fabric and fringed the edges.  The girls tied layed the two different fabrics on top of each other and tied the opposite ties together in a knot.  Then they stuffed the pillows with pillow stuffing and had a very easy gift to take home.

It was very fun. When I cut out all of the pillow squares in the morning, I realized I bought twice as much fabric as I needed, so I decided to make my daughter some pajama pants to match the pillows everyone made. She loves loves loves them and wears them whenever they are not in the wash.

Check out all our birthday party ideas! And lots more coming...
