My daughter, Taylor, loves Target. I can’t emphasize enough how much she loves Target. She asks to go there connastntly. For Christmas this year, she asked for a portal from her room straight to Target so she didn’t have to drive there. Me too, girl! So, when I saw a few Target birthday parties circulating around Pinterest; I knew I had to do one for my Target loving girl.
My husband was adamant that we have uniforms and name tags for the party. Let me also mention that it was 105 degrees that day and we sweat our guts out. Taylor quickly stripped down to her swim suits after we took a few pictures. Actually, I had to beg her to keep that outfit on for a few pictures.
I love the idea of the back room employee of the month back drop for photos. I wanted it to look homemade and like it would it would look in a back room. I used a red border and wrapping paper from The Dollar Tree. I used the pictures I took at Target in her birthday dress.
Here’s an up close picture. I thought it would be cute to take pictures around Target but what I didn’t realize is how embarrassing it is to do it in front of people.
You’ve gotta have a Target Cafe picture!
We took pictures as her friends came to the party.
I used Target ads to make pennant flags. I made a template and rough cut them out of the ads. Just hot glue them to a string.
I made signs to look like the aisle signs at Target. The “T” is for Taylor and the “05” is because she’s turning 5. Totally snagged this idea from Parties by Peggy and Trisha.
Oh and that unicorn is from Targetunicorn is from Target and is perfect for any little girl’s birthday!
I also made a price checker because who doesn’t hunt for those price checkers?
The color scheme is pretty easy to decorate for. Anything red and white will go and I found a lot of it at The Dollar Tree or at Target. Target gave me the cups, lids, straws and popcorn bags for FREE! Now, I don’t know if every location will or if I just happened to talk to the right person. The wonderful lady I spoke to said she didn’t mind because we were Target fans.
The food was basically the food you can find at the Target Cafe. Pizza, popcorn, hot dogs, and pretzels with cheese. I made pretzel bites instead to make it more party friendly. We made Rice Krispie treats with captain crunch berries to make it more festive. I also found red velvet Chips Ahoy cookies with white chips to go with the color scheme. I also made my first balloon garland! I loved the idea from Kids Activities.com
For the favors, I created a Target Dollar Spot and bought all of the stuff from, guess what?? The Dollar Spot!! I made tags to look just like Target price tags.
The Dollar Spot favors was such a hit with all the kids. We gave each kid five dollars in fake money to to spend at The Dollar Spot. Taylor was the employee that scanned each item, took their money and then bagged their things. Taylor loved doing that for her friends and they loved shopping.
So happy we could make all her Target dreams come true!
