Strawberry Shortcake Party Invitations

Starting kid birthday parties off on the right foot starts with choosing the perfect invitations. Here are a few ideas you might consider for those cards:

  • The strawberry shortcake invitations/thank you cards combination pack is one idea. These postcard-style invites make a nice choice. Because they are combined with the thank you cards, you'll have one less thing to purchase and you'll already have the cards for your little ones to send to guests.

  • Choose pink or red invitations in honor of Strawberry Shortcake's signature colors. Find a strawberry-scented air freshener and give each piece of stationery a spray before dropping them into the envelopes and mailing them.

  • Purchase card stock stationery and cut the pieces in the shape of a large strawberry. Use hot melt glue to attach some green paper at the top to represent the tip of the berry. You can either handwrite the party details on each invite or print the information on the paper before cutting out the designs.

Regardless of the invitations you choose for the Strawberry Shortcake birthday party, you should buy a few extras in case you make errors or need to invite additional people.

Strawberry Shortcake Party Decorations

As you try to decorate for the Strawberry Shortcake birthday party, you can use some ordinary items, such as pink and red balloons tied onto the backs of chairs or made into lovely balloon bouquets which decorate the tables. You could take pink, red, and white streamers to decorate the walls, the staircases, or other parts of the party room.

You can decorate the tables with Strawberry Shortcake table cloths or you can choose a pastel colored plain cloth. Another idea is to take a plain white cloth and place it on the tables. The guests can entertain themselves by drawing on the cloth with crayons. Consider investing in washable crayons just in case they end up drawing on your furniture while you're occupied elsewhere – that's one of the risks of hosting a party for kids.

Kids Strawberry Shortcake Party Costumes

Sugar and spice and everything nice-that's what girls are made of! If you are looking for great homemade costume ideas for kids, the Strawberry Shortcake theme is so fun to dress for. You can dress your little girl in pinks and red or blue or yellow depending on which character she would like to be. This can be as simple as an outfit all in this color or it can be a more elaborate costume if you wish. Give them a cute little hat to top the outfit or some accessories or stickers in the theme to complete the look. Since little girls love to dress up, going for the colors of their favorite Strawberry Shortcake character can be such fun for them and for you!

When you're throwing a party for a little girl, she wants to stand out and be special at her big event. You can let her be Strawberry Shortcake, at least for this day. You can find a deluxe strawberry shortcake costume for her, as well as a matching pink strawberry shortcake wig to complete the look.

To complete the party, ask all of the other guests to come as their favorite Strawberry Shortcake characters. Or just ask all of them to wear pink or red to the event.

If you don't want to spend money on a costume and wig, you can make the birthday girl feel special by purchasing her a birthday tiara or sash that she can wear throughout the party.

Strawberry Shortcake Party Icebreaker Activities

Create Your Own Berry Bitty City

One of the best things about a Strawberry Shortcake birthday party is that the girls can feel as though they are actually a part of the fun. If you want an excellent Strawberry Shortcake party icebreaker, then you may want to consider creating your own berry bitty city. This is the little village where all the characters live and it's easy enough to create on your own. You can set up boxes in the backyard that you paint in the appropriate bright colors to designate each of their little cottages. Then the girls can play house within these little "homes" and they can spend hours doing this. All you really need is big boxes that you can paint brightly in the appropriate red, blue, pink, and other colors. Girls at this age loving playing house and when they have their own little village to do so the fun will never stop!

Coloring Fun

Girls love to color and be creative and they love this theme, so turn this into an excellent Strawberry Shortcake party icebreaker. It's not a difficult activity to organize, but it is tons of fun for the girls. Get a bunch of Strawberry Shortcake coloring books from the store, print off some activity pages from the Internet, and of course get all the supplies. Get crayons, markers, colored pencils, paints, stickers, glitter, and any other fun craft elements that you can get your hands on. Then let the girls really use their imagination to color up their favorite characters on this fun activity. It lets them use their imagination and ensures that they can create something amazing within this beloved theme.

Dress As Your Favorite Character

There are such great characters in this theme and every girl seems to love one of them. Use this as a fun and memorable Strawberry Shortcake birthday party icebreaker. Let the girls dress up as one of the Berry Best Friends-they can put on the red and pink outfit for Strawberry Shortcake or any of the girls. Why not let them dress in the appropriate colors and then add the right accessories? They can become Blueberry Muffin, Raspberry Torte, or even Lemon Meringue right before your very eyes. You just need brightly colored items and a bit of imagination and the girls will have a blast!

Baking with the Girls

At the very heart of this fun girls theme is the yummy smells that each doll has. So this can lend way to a fun little Strawberry Shortcake birthday party icebreaker if the girls love to bake-and really what girl doesn't? You can put together a fun activity where they help you to actually bake something yummy like strawberry shortcake or blueberry muffins. You do the hard work like putting the items in the oven or chopping up the fruit, but let them get involved. Give each girl a job such as dropping the blueberries into the muffin mix or placing whipped cream on top of the shortcake. As long as each girl has a job and they get to eat and enjoy the final product, then they will just love it! Little girls love baking and they love this theme and they fit together just perfectly, and the nice part is that you can turn this into an actual activity at the party.

Strawberry Shortcake Party Foods

Strawberry Shortcake birthday party guests are going to expect some tasty and probably fruit-flavored refreshments. Here are a couple of choices you could serve:

  • Create cupcakes infused with strawberry-flavored gelatin and topped with vanilla icing and a tasty strawberry.

  • Make a fruit pizza. Take rolled out sugar cookie dough that has been cooked and cooled, top with whipped cream, cream cheese, or icing. Sprinkle liberally with colorful fruits that represent the different Strawberry Shortcake characters.

  • Serve fruit parfaits. Use clear glasses, layer pudding, whipped topping, and colorful fruits in the cups and chill.

  • Let the guests have a sundae party. Serve each guest a bowl of ice cream then set up a small section where you have bowls of crumbled cookies, sprinkles, nuts, cherries, chocolate syrup, strawberry topping, and whipped topping so guests can create their own favorite creations.

Of course, you could also create a birthday cake in a strawberry-shaped mold and decorate it with strawberry icing and sprinkles.

You need to also choose some way of serving all of the delicious treats you have to share with your guests. Choosing strawberry shortcake napkins, dessert plates, and nine ounce cups that are the perfect size for young guests would be a good choice.

Strawberry Shortcake Party Favors

Most kid birthday parties' hosts also pass out favors to all of the guests. Typically, these favors should match the theme in some way. You can choose these favors and purchase them individually if you want, or you can purchase pre-made sets for each guest that includes everything you could want. For example, the sweetheart favor box comes with a necklace and stick-on earrings, a plastic ring, Strawberry shortcake stickers and a blowout combined in a heart-shaped pink bucket.

Other favors could include Strawberry Shortcake dolls, Strawberry Shortcake stickers, treat bags of candy treats, crayons and coloring books, or bottles of bubbles.

Kids Strawberry Shortcake Party Games

Depending on the age of the guests at your kid birthday parties, you may find keeping them entertained to be a big challenge. Here are a few ideas you might want to use for your Strawberry Shortcake birthday party:

  • In honor of the theme, have a fruit tasting contest. Divide the party goers into two or three teams. Cut pieces fruit into small chunks and blindfold members of each team. Ask them to taste the fruit and name what kind it is. The team getting the most correct responses wins prizes.

  • A strawberry shortcake pull string pinata is another entertainment option. Like a traditional piñata, this one is filled with candy or small toys (you need to add whatever gifts you want). But instead of hitting the piñata, guests pull the string at the bottom and one lucky guest will have treats pouring down on their heads.

  • Showing a family-friendly movie can also be fun for the party guests. Make big bowls of popcorn and other snacks and let the girls have the television to themselves so they can watch favorite movies, perhaps even some cartoons starring Strawberry Shortcake.

Here's an excellent selection of printable kids birthday games you can buy and print out right away:

Pinatas are a great addition to the child birthday party and a wonderful activity for the childrens. Pinatas are always a "hit" ;).
