Includes Free Printables and Planning Info!
To begin planning I researched gym studios in our area and secured the date/time.
Next, we created the guest list. Because it was a double birthday party, each girl was able to invite six friends.
They are careful to choose a nice cross-section of school friends, neighborhood friends and others they have met through various activities.
I searched for invitations, but when I couldn’t find something appropriate in my area stores, I created this simple, yet colorful design.
It hints at the fun of the event and worked for the various ages of the invited guests.
Here is the invitation as a word document so you can download it as a free printable and customize it for your event.
If you prefer something that does not require formatting or customizing, here is the pdf version…
To carry the theme further I used the design to make labels for the top of the favor tins. This gymnastics party label will work with Avery labels 22817.
I also made the design in a card-size that can be used for table decorations or thank you cards.
For party favors I bought small tins from Michaels and spray painted them gold. What could be better than sending each girl home with their own gold?
The tins came with a lock and key that was an extra hit with the girls.In each was a gold medal, candy and a headband.
I made the headbands from gold sequin elastic band trim I purchased at a local fabric shop. I bought four yards of the band and was able to make 14 headbands. Each headband used about 10 inches of the elastic. I simply cut it and tied it in a knot.
The birthday girls wore their headbands to the party and the guests loved them, so they were extra excited once they saw it in the favor!
Luckily, I was able to purchase the cake from Target’s bakery.
I’d love to know if you use this theme and feel free to share your images on the Queenocracy’s Facebook page.
Happy Planning and Partying!
