The Pajama Jam

10:49:00 AM


Yesterday was my little one's birthday! We spent a couple of weeks trying to figure what to do for her birthday. I gotta tell you these party places are a RIP OFF! You get so little for so much cost. So this year, we decided to do something at the house. It turned out so cute! Rhy wanted a pajama party and made it a rule that not only kids come in pajamas but also adults too!

Yesterday was a day full of everything Rhy. She had a birthday photo shoot, followed by hitting up a local pizza shop and then her pajama jam! B does photography and did a great job of capturing the personality of Rhy we all know and love.






She surprisingly enjoyed her photo shoot and even suggested different ways she wanted her pictures taken. Afterwards we went to a cute little pizza spot that was in the area of where we took the pictures. Pizza is her favorite so it was right up her alley!


After pizza we hurried home to get her party ready. We went with a pink and white theme. The decor was simple but just perfect for what she needed. We brought the table down from my home office downstairs and used my bar station table for her presents. We did a simple backdrop of alternating pink and white streamers.




My mom made the cupcakes for the party. My daughter loves her cupcakes so this was a special order for her.







As party favors we made cute little hot chocolate jars. Rhyan love putting this little jars together. We put hot chocolate on the bottom, topped with marshmallows, chocolate chips, and peppermints. We found these cute printable gift tags that we printed and cut out. [the printables didn't have polka dots on them like the site said, but they were still cute and served its purpose.]




Once the party got started the girls played a game of musical manicure and twister. Afterwards they had a dance party in the dark with glow sticks. I think that was their favorite part! lol


After they partied themselves tired, a few of her cousins spent a night. I went upstairs to check on them and they were all passed out on the couch. I think that was a sign that they enjoyed themselves. The next morning we finished up with breakfast and by that time I was tired myself.


All in all we had a great day! I'm so glad that my little one was able to see another year of life. We are excited about watching her grow and so happy she had a great birthday!
