Camille turns 4 at Kangaroo Jacs!

Camille insisted on having her 4th birthday party at Kangaroo Jacs. For those of you not familiar, it is a warehouse full of inflatables.

I wasn't sure what to do for the invitation so I put Kangaroo in the search line on Etsy and found  this cute birthday card with a striped kangaroo in a party hat.

I emailed Ryan from MAN vs GEORGE and an invitation and stickers were designed based on this kangaroo.

I am so happy with how it turned out and Ryan was awesome! From there, I decided to use this invitation as inspiration for the party. I found cute vinyl table clothes on sale from the summer line at Target from $1 to $2.50. I bought the plates and napkins there as well.

Then I found cute striped goodie bags to match the napkins and a banner from Target as well.

I cut tags from cardstock and added the stickers. Inside the goodie bags, I added  a color your own cutout from the Dollar Tree as well as two pixie sticks, a lollipop and a candy necklace, bracelet or lipstick also from the Dollar Tree.

I used the same stickers and serrated scissors and cardstock to make cupcake toppers.

I also made this  ball tree after seeing this one on Pinterest.

Stay tuned for a separate post on how to create this. It was a little time consuming and took a lot of ribbon but I found  some really cheap at Dollar Tree and Michaels. Here are some more pics from the big day....

I ordered Camille's shirt from Libbie & Winston. Really cute shirts and very affordable. Check her out on Facebook.

A good time was had by all!

PS...Today Clyde  met Dermabond! I can't believe they hadn't met before. Remember Clyde's carefree nature here. While hiding under the table, he hit his forehead on the  bench at our neighborhood restaurant, Flinns. A little Dermabond fixed him right up. Camille to Michael..."Daddy...they glued Clyde's head back together."
