DIY Sleepover Birthday Invitations

sleepover party invitationsI’m in the process of planning my daughter’s first sleepover birthday party.  And my main concern isn’t the decorations or the food but if I will get any sleep?!  When my mother talks about my first sleepover, she always reminds me that it was hard to get everyone to go to bed.  My memories are a little different.  I remember I wore a pair of old-fashioned striped footed pajamas.  Not only did my mom rent a movie for the occasion but she also rented the VCR.  Yes, there was a time when people rented VCR’s.  My friend Jillian gave me the book, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  And last, I remember that one of the favors was a purple wonder woman shaped soap. Kind of random, I know.

Anyhow, you’re probably interested in the invitations I’ve got pictured above.  On my search for inspiration, I came across a lot of cute invitations.  Pictured above were a few of my favorites.  I actually used the cute “sleeping girl invitation” for my daughter’s invites.  Links below.

Okay, just one last thing.  Does anyone have any tips for throwing a sleepover party?  Your advice would be much appreciated.

  1. Those are adorable invites! My daughter had a sleepover party last year where she wanted sleeping bag invitations made out of fabric. The girls are now using them as pencil holders.
    Tips? Plan on not getting any sleep, provide lots of snacks and lidded cups (otherwise they will spill all over the place), rent a couple of movies and provide popcorn, have plans for group games (we did a scavenger hunt, had Just Dance contest on the Wii, and decorating pillowcases using fabric markers – their party favors along with dollar store flashlight that they used during the scavenger hunt around the backyard). And if you survive all that, serve them waffles with fruit for breakfast and send them on their way then take a nap for the rest of the day ;).

    • Gigi,

      Thanks for all the great tips! I really like the idea of a night time scavenger hunt with flashlights. I’m headed to Daiso today so hopefully I’ll find some cute flashlights.
