It’s official– I have a SIX year old. Something about six feels like a bigger milestone than the rest of the last few birthdays and we are going big this year for Liam because of it. Not only is he celebrating his birthday with friends and family in Vegas later this week, but we also have a day of birthday fun planned for him AND he got to have a little birthday party with our Arizona friends over the weekend. In the words of Liam himself, he is “living the life”.
Liam has been 100% on the Toy Story hype train with the release of Toy Story 4. We’ve watched the first three Toy Story movies at least 50 times in the last month and half his birthday list consisted of Toy Story toys, so throwing him a Toy Story themed birthday party was an easy decision.
Combining almost entirely things that I already had + a handful of new Toy Story toys, the table spread came together super easily and affordably. All toys + the table cloth + Toy Story napkins, plates, and coloring pages were purchased at Target. The foil balloon cake topper was purchased from the Oh Shiny Paper Co Etsy Shop. The crate was purchased at Ikea.
Since it’s Arizona in the middle of the summer we put an inflatable pool in the backyard and let the kids go wild with bubble wands and a bubble machine. I also had the Toy Story movies playing in the background of the party as well as a TeePee and coloring station so that the kids could have some indoor activity options as well. Liam had a blast, totally scored in the gift department, and I would say the party was a success! Looking forward to a day of indoor trampoline park, pesto pizza, and whatever else my birthday boy requests!
