Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Party Ideas

By | February 21, 2012

Strawberry Shortcake is a cheerful little character who is everyone’s best friend. She runs her own Berry Café in Berry Bitty City. All her friends come to visit and she is always there to lend a hand. Along with her friends Lemon Meringue, Raspberry Torte, Orange Blossom, Blueberry Muffin and the Berrykins, and her trusty pet Custard they always have lots of fun. A Strawberry Shortcake birthday party is a terrific theme for your little girl! For this party theme you can either incorporate the Strawberry Shortcake character into the theme or you can include the rest of the characters.

The first consideration for a Strawberry Shortcake birthday party is the decorations. You can buy a host of Strawberry Shortcake-themed plates, napkins, cups, and more online, so parents who are short on time will be able to decorate beautifully without spending time making strawberry-covered tablecloths and banners. And you can even have personalized party decorations with the name of your little girl and a special message to her.

Parents with a little more time on their hands can decorate red balloons with strawberry seeds to make strawberry balloons, or blow up Strawberry Shortcake and friends coloring book pages for posters and birthday banners. Bright red, white, and light pink are the main colors in Strawberry land, and parents won’t have any trouble finding tablecloths and party streamers in these colors.

Send out your Strawberry Shortcake birthday party invitations a few weeks before the event. You can incorporate the theme into the invites by putting a picture of the Strawberry Shortcake character on the invite. Another great idea is to put a picture of your little girl dressed in a strawberry outfit or costume! For the invitation wording, write: “You are invited to a berry special day!”

Perhaps the best part of any Strawberry Shortcake birthday party is the food! Parents can really be creative with their favorite strawberry recipes, and kids will love the shortcakes, chocolate-covered berries, strawberry preserves, punches, and pink ice cream. Parents will be delighted too, since strawberries are filled with vitamins and nutrients. As children leave your daughter’s Strawberry Shortcake birthday party, they’re sure to have smiles on their faces. Hand them some strawberry-themed party favors on their way out the door, and the smiles will last for hours.

Many games can be modified to be “berry” fun for the kids at a Strawberry Shortcake birthday party. Use a blown up coloring book page or a Strawberry Shortcake poster to play pin the strawberry on Strawberry Shortcake’s hat, or pin the tail on Pup cake. You can also sew together strawberry-shaped red felt cutouts, and then fill the strawberry-shaped cutouts with beans. These pillows are great for a game of who stole Strawberry’s strawberry, or a strawberry-themed version of hot potato. Near the end of the party, you can hand each child a coloring book page to color, then glue each child’s colored page to a sheet of card stock to make a take-home placemat.

Finger-painting is a great activity for younger kids at your Strawberry Shortcake party. For supplies you will need white card stock paper, red finger paint, and black and green markers. Have the kids dip their finger into the red finger paint and then press it onto the white paper. This will be the base of the strawberry. Once the paint has dried, the kids can draw on black strawberry seeds and a green stem for the strawberries. This will surely bring a lot of fun to the kids as well as the other guests.
