Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Party

This year my little girl requested a "Strawberry Shortcake" birthday party. It was a lot of fun coming up with cute ways to decorate and celebrate at her party. The decorations were simple ~ lots of pink and green and strawberries! We served cupcakes and strawberry lemonade.

I found this shirt at Old Navy with vintage Strawberry Shortcake, which I thought was so perfect:

For activities we played Bingo, colored pictures, pinned berries in a basket, had a beanbag toss, played a little freeze dance, read a Strawberry Shortcake book, and had a strawberry-shaped piñata.

I loved the cupcakes, which I put inside little terra cotta pots. I sprinkled them with oreo cookie crumbs to resemble dirt and topped them with a chocolate-covered strawberry:

The party favors were made by my sweet mom. I kept it super simple. Besides the candy from the piñata, everyone took home a strawberry-shaped beanbag:

I think it's safe to say this little girl had a blast. She had a big smile all day long!

Andrea also did a Strawberry Shortcake Party and here is her fun cake she made for her daughter:

{The polkadots and strawberries are from fruit roll-ups, the stripes are Sour Straws, the balls are Mint Chocolate Balls and the rest is frosting!}
