My daughter, Evie, just turned 4 this past weekend. When it came time to start planning her birthday party, I asked her what kind of party she wanted and, without hesitation, she exclaimed that it had to be PJ Masks themed. When I told my friends we were doing a PJ Masks birthday party, they were happy to hear it because, of course, all of their kids love PJ Masks too. I started to feel a lot of pressure but I think I pulled it off pretty well. And since now I know just how popular these PJ Masks are, I thought I’d share with you my party ideas to help out my fellow PJ Masks parents who may be thinking about throwing a superhero party of their own.
I’ll admit it. I am much too lazy to do actual invitations these days. Figuring out addresses, mailing everything out, waiting for RSVPs… I’m so over it. So I just do a Facebook event. It’s so much easier. Or if you’re not a Facebook user, you can always do an online invitation by email. I created my own banner for the Facebook invitation. And, yes, I replaced Gekko with my daughter in a Gekko costume, because why not?
Now that the invitation was out of the way, it was time to start the actual planning. I didn’t go too over the top with the backdrop and I wanted something easy. I ordered foil fringe curtains in blue, red, and green. I made my own simple “banner” that I just printed, cut, and taped right onto the curtain instead of stringing it up. I used a simple black table cloth for the table. I set out some PJ Masks party favor blowouts and horns on one side of the table. On the other side, I had the desserts. Instead of doing special desserts in the theme colors, I just went with whatever mini desserts I found at the store. Then I printed PJ Masks characters, cut a circle around them, and taped them to toothpicks for cupcake toppers. I also gathered up all of my daughter’s PJ Masks figures and set those out as well.
I wanted to save on wherever I could so I tried to do a semi-DIY cake. I picked up a plain blue and yellow two-tiered cake from a local supermarket and added decorations of my own. I created and printed my own banner as well as the PJ Masks faces on photo paper. I cut silhouettes out of glitter paper and then I made the buildings out of a black sugar sheet and yellow cookie icing. It’s not as good as a professional cake, but Evie definitely loved it!
Evie did say that she wanted to wear her costume and she wanted her little brother to be Catboy. But knowing that toddlers can be quite fickle, I made sure to have more comfortable outfits ready. We ended up doing outfit changes throughout the day. They wore their t-shirts in the afternoon because it was so hot but once it got colder, they changed into their costumes. And I have to say, they look so cute!
So those are all my PJ Masks party ideas. If you’re having aPJ Masks party of your own, help out your fellow parents and feel free to share some of your ideas in the comments below!
