Peace Out Single Digits- Fun 70's Birthday Party Theme


Planning and throwing a party is one of my absolute favorite things to do.  But to be honest I was so stressed about this party.  Emily begged for months to host her first slumber party but we only had one little problem.  Our home was still under construction!  I tried to convince her of letting it go but she wouldn't let up.  I finally agreed but was so concerned about throwing this party.  The idea of a slumber party was daunting on its own, hello 13 tweens under my roof.  But hosting while under construction was another level.



Although this was one of the more stressful parties to plan, it might have turned out to be one of my favorites.  It's all thanks to the wonderful vendors that I got to work with.  When planning a party I always start with a theme.  I usually try and come up with some ideas and then present one or two to the birthday girl.  Now that Emily is older we worked on this together.  I threw out the idea of "Peace Out Single Digits" since she was turning ten and showed her some pictures of seventies themed parties to play off of Peace.  She loved the ideas I showed her and we decided to run with that theme.  

I then picked out paper party-ware and fell in love with Coterie's floral plates.  They became the inspiration for the rest of the party.  I wanted a soft, floral and feminine feel and they fit the bill perfectly.  Coterie has some of the cutest party supplies where you can buy sets or build your own party with individual items.  What I loved about this set was the coordinating floral prints that just made the table pop.  I used different dinner and dessert plates as well as coordinating napkins.  The silverware and cups were the same for each place setting.  I placed daisy sunglasses at each place setting for a party favor.


I sent the inspiration plates to all the vendors so we could come up with all the decor.  I've worked with Anna at Eventistry before and am always blown away with her talent.  She did two balloon "arches" for the party; one for over Emily's teepee and another arch for the party table.  The daisy balloons were beyond adorable and just made the party perfect.


I purchased flowers from Trader Joe's which is always my go-to for party flowers.  They are very reasonable and always have a good selection.  I mixed hydrangeas, daisies and babies breath in each bouquet and placed them in small square vases along the table.


I sprinkled the candy bar along the entire table for a different feel rather than a separate candy bar.  I always get our candy from Abigail's Candy Shop.  She has the best selection including nostalgic candy.  I love how the different candy added pops of color to the monochromatic table.


I've always wanted to use these cake popsicles for a party and these from Cookie Kits from Kari were to die for delicious and cute!  She also made the daisy cookie party favors and again not only were they really cute but they were soft and yummy.





I made Emily's flower crown with floral wire, floral tape and white daisies from Trader Joe's.  It's quite simple to make if you wanted to make your own.  Cute the wire to the size you need and make a circle and connect wires and twist.  Cut individuals flowers to about 1.5 inches in length.  Add to wire and start wrapping floral tape around.  You just keep adding flowers and tape until you reach the end.





Since this was a slumber party in our home with no kitchen I did donuts for breakfast.  We always love donuts from Liv's Donuts because they are soft, light and scrumptious.  Additionally she always does special donuts for me and they always are adorable.





I purchased the burlap tablecloths and macrame table runner from Amazon and they were a great base for the seventies theme.







I was so lucky to borrow the A Frame Teepee's from a friend but I found similar ones here.  They were perfect for a slumber party and the girls loved them.





I've linked all of our outfits as well as all the party supplies that are available online.


















Watching Emily blossom into a young lady is an extreme blessing. She is the kindest, most empathetic, caring and loving child I know and I’m so blessed by her heart. Never let the world dull your shine baby girl.  Happy Birthday Emily!
