So happy to be sharing details of Mia’s 8th birthday party with you today. We decided on a hip hop party as she and her friends love music and dancing. The girls have been taking hip hop classes together for a couple years now and like to come up with their own little routines when they get together these days.
I went with a rustic look for this party so our space would resemble a club a bit more. Since our house decor is mainly white, I created a contrast by going with barnwood and darker colours.
We had a mini candy bar on the dessert table. The jars I used are quite small and each only holds about 200g of treats. We had twelve kids at the party and there was plenty of candy left after each of them took a bit of candy home so each child really had a very modest amount, but their excitement over the candy bar was huge. Win.
Grace of Clever After Creations customized some graffiti style printables that went perfectly with the look I had in mind.
Eva of Jessika’s Treats made some amazing cookies that matched the colour scheme and party style perfectly.
As a craft, the kids made personalized bracelets and necklaces, even key chains and hair clips. I love incorporating a craft into my parties. It is usually much appreciated by the more introverted kids and doubles as a little keepsake instead of a loot bag. The kids made jewelry with lots of scented beads, charms, and word beads. Everyone loved this activity and a couple girls who weren’t into dancing as much as the rest continued making jewelry most of the night while watching the others on the “dance floor” without having to feel left out.
The kids had homemade pizza for dinner and could choose between a few beverages from the “bar”. I am happy to say that water was the most popular one! Ha! There was also some popcorn at the bar.
The girls had Oreo and red velvet cake for dessert. Both were a huge hit. All in all, this hip hop party was super fun with lots of crafting, dancing and singing.
