How did you celebrate your 6 year old girl's birthday?
Was there a theme to the birthday party? If so, what was the theme?
After years of cleaning for days/preparing food/decorating my own cake, we decided to do a "girls only" invitation for my daughter's classmates at the local rec. center. The girls got to decorate their own cupcakes (which I pre-baked) and then we ordered pizza. Afterward, they went swimming. What a lot of pressure off of mom!

a party at palyfarm with all her friends and family =)
We had her a big water slide,food,family & friends.. She had a blast! Happy 6th to our princess,Hanna♥
Jozlyn chose the theme, cake, guests & time for the party..I was just there with the wallet :) but she was cheaper than what I would have been myself.
Her theme was Littlest Pet Shop, but we printed from a website for her invites, so saved a few pennies there.
Her napkins & plates were Littlest Pet Shop & Disney Princess (from her 4yr bday party-leftovers). Her cake was a Littlest Pet Shop theme but I bought the pets for on top, Walmart just stuck them here & there for fashion. Her cake was also a CUPcake (24count)--we only had three cupcakes left. She doesn't really like sloppie-joes, so we got pizza from a shop uptown, she saved a few pennies for me there too. One bucket of choc.,vanil., & strawb. ice cream.
Her party was schedules from 2-4pm, but the adult guests stayed past 6pm, the kids were gone by 3:45pm. Her guest list was 20 kids max because I asked if she wanted more people, she said no, i'm only one kid mum...so saved me money there for games and prizes.
Jozlyn had a very joyous time with her birthday party that was styled by herself. The streamers and balloons she found in the garage from previous parties. She used streamers from her previous parties, balloons from my brother's military party 2yrs ago, and my sister's baby shower from last June. Jozlyn didn't care who's they were because they were just the perfect colors, as she put it. :)
Because I allowed Jozlyn to prepare and not just participate with her upcoming festivities, her party seemed to move faster & smoother. She also saved me roughly $100-$150.00 because she wanted things her way, which amazed me how easy it was to let her do most of the work, but I must say she seems to be quite thrifty.
She got many items that she needed, but to make her day the best as she put it, she got $125.00 of birthday money. So Sunday she wisely went to Walmart & bought three items she really wanted, then she knew she needed clothes so she got 2shirts and 1short. but she also had money left over.
OVERALL::: Letting Jozlyn plan her party was the best thing I think I could've ever done. It will amaze you as it did me, when you step back and let them do the work. Not only will you realize that she pays attention when mommy says it's on sale, but the choices your child makes will astound you with the maturity behind it.
Thanks to anyone who read my post the whole way through :)
My twins(a boy and a girl) both celebrated their 6th birthday with a bowling party at Raks Pin House...for $75..they got to invite 4 other friends with 1 hr of free bowling plus t-shirts and they provided a private room with free popsicles and balloons...everything else was up to u...my kids were happy and that was all that mattered...it was a good deal for 2 hours of happiness for them...I would recommend it!
My daughter was very clear on what she wanted for her birthday, Jazmin wanted a party at Chuck E Cheese with all her clasmates! So that is what we did, we had a major party at her favorite place.
She wanted an Eclipse party. Black streamers...even an Edward cake.
Wanted to go horseback riding but the weather did't permit ( u know Chicago) so we had a great dinner at a downtown bistro and then went to go see "RIO" in 3-D. The kids had a blast and so did I !!!!
HAd 10 girls round for WII bowling and bubbles tea. Hot dogs, oven chips and cake all dead easy to do and they sat at the dinner table like grown ups and loved it!!!!
We had a P.J and pizza party,we played pass the parcel,chasie,freeze,running races,relay and obstacle course races,simon says,guess the animal and many other games it was so much fun even the adults had fun too.lots of food good and bad. And we all looked cool in our P.J's ready for bed after the party,we had the best dressed too with lots of prizes.
A fairy party (with 16 little fairies and 1 little elf) at our home, run by "My Fairy Party" a local business on the Central Coast NSW. 2 fairies came and had the little fairies eating out of their hands!
We went out to dinner at Hoss's for a family dinner with Brian's parents and his sister's family. Her Aunt teased her with her gift to Ashlee which Ashlee wouldn't admit, but she loved the attention from her Aunt Becky. We had the Hoss crew sing happy birthday to her. She sat there so impatient to get her gifts which she loved. The next day, with her birthday money, she went on a little shopping spree, which she mostly bought Kitty stuffed animals-NO SURPRISE THERE LOL She said it was the best birthday she ever had!
We had a fancy nancy themed tea party. Everything was over the top with the more accessories the better. The girls received boas, and jewelry. We decorated sunglasses, had a runway show and lunch of tea sandwiches, fancy punches, kabobs and parfey's for lunch.
She had a little celebration at school on her actual birthday, then the next day her and her cousins got to go Chipmunks to celebrate properly. It was a fun day enjoyed by all.
