Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Party


My daughter turned 3 on Saturday. We celebrated it by having a small Strawberry Shortcake themed birthday party for her with our family (I posted the strawberry themed invites I made a little while back). She is so into Strawberry Shortcake now, which is so much fun for me since I was a Strawberry Shortcake fan myself when I was little!! I had a lot of fun preparing for her birthday party!

A while back, I happened upon these little strawberry boxes on someone's blog. This was before my daughter got into Strawberry Shortcake. I couldn't locate the blog on which I originally saw these adorable boxes. After searching and searching (for many days), I finally found them on Lauren Meader's SCS's blog. I had to email her to get the template since the link she included in her post wasn't working. Of course, after finally receiving the template, I discover that a friend and fellow local blogger (Michelle) had the template on her Splitcoast Gallery all along! That's always the case with me...I'm a little slow!

Anyways, I knew these little strawberry boxes would be the perfect addition to my daughter's party!
I made about 60 of these. I put a Strawberries & Cream Lifesaver in each one.
These were the goodie bags I made for the little girls (I altered the measurements for these-I found the original instructions for these here)...
...and these are the ones I made for the boys. I had no clue what to do for the boys since I thought they wouldn't really appreciate the goodie bags I made for the girls! :-) I decided to go plain, and use a little camo paper for the boys since my son is so into military stuff now.
A Strawberry Shortcake themed party would not be complete without a strawberry flavored Strawberry Shortcake birthday cake (made by my mom)!! Thank you again for stopping by and for all of your kind comments! I love getting feedback from all of you! I hope you all have a great week!

Well I know you already know that I was a big fan of Strawberry Shortcake when we were younger...hehehe! I wish I had known that you were looking for the template. I did that as a project for our group mtg. a while back. Yours came out really cute and I love that cake your mom made too! So cute! BTW: there's a little something coming in the mail for Kami. Sorry, but tell her Uncle Phil forgot to mail it for me.
