Care Bears and Rainbows: Morgan’s 4th Birthday Party

8 Mar

My little Morgan just turned 4 and she decided shortly after her 3rd birthday that she wanted a Care Bear party next.  I’m not a huge fan of all out character parties but can’t deny my children their wishes so I usually choose a color or two that has to do with the character and most of the decor is designed around the colors rather than the character itself.  For this party, I chose rainbow colors since Care Bears live in the clouds and play on rainbows.

This is the dessert table I designed with lots of rainbow colors and desserts.

I created a rainbow banner to hang above the table.

The cake was homemade this year…you’ll see why.  I had ordered Morgan a rainbow shirt and tutu on Etsy but the tutu didn’t fit her.  It fit the cake stand perfectly and really made the table pop.  The colored M&M’s brought in a lot of color as well.

The adorable cake topper was from Creating from the Heart on Etsy.  This little cake topper is so well made and the details are amazing.  She even looks a little like Morgan.

I used the same Starbucks Frap bottles from Madison’s Princess Tea Party to serve a rainbow of drinks.  I used Gatorade since it comes in so many bright colors.

Along with the cake, I served a rainbow of fruit.

These Chocolate Covered Oreos from Sweeties by Kim were delicious and pretty!

I got these yummy mini-cupcakes from Baked by Melissa in NYC!

The rainbow party hats were found at Target.  I added a little pizzazz to them by trimming them with feather boa.  I put a sparkly “M” on Morgan’s hat to personalize it.

The party favors were Care Bear DVD’s.  I put them in slim jewel case and lined them with colorful scrapbook paper and tied them with a matching ribbon.

Morgan’s Care Bear collection made for a great display and photo opp spot.

Care Bear coloring sheets and crayons sorted by color in matching cups awaited the party guests.

Everyone enjoyed coloring while waiting for the guests to arrive.

The girls were so surprised when a giant Care Bear joined us.

They played parachute, freeze dance, limbo, had a magic show and scavenger hunt with the Care Bear from Dave’s Cast of Characters.

After an hour of fun and games, we sang happy birthday and enjoyed pizza and cake.

The kids were so surprised when I cut the cake and revealed this rainbow inside!

This was one of the most fun parties we’ve had.  Morgan had a blast!

Happy 4th Birthday, Morgan Paige.  I hope your Care Bear cheer is always here.

XOXO!
