A Charlie Brown Birthday Party


Whoosh! Guys, what a week. Heck what a month. Okay let's be realistic...it has been a crazy SEVERAL months.

Good news folks! This Charlie Brown Birthday Party marks the end of our CRAZY, with a capital CRAY, run of birthdays.

Little came up with this birthday theme around Christmas time when he developed a mild obsession with all the Charlie Brown movies playing on Netflix. I readily agreed because to be honest it is really hard to tell Little no when he asks so sweetly.

For the next 3ish months we have heard of very little else.

He was very excited. In fact in every sweet little prayer he has uttered for the last month plus, he has thanked Heavenly Father for his birthday and birthday party coming soon.


It was really rather sweet.

So sweet in fact that I was given to panic when just a few short weeks before his party, nothing was actually planned, and I was worried about letting his sweet face down.

AHHH!!!  

A Charlie Brown Themed Birthday Party was a little harder to put together than I had anticipated.

Everything finally came together and there was plenty of Charlie Brown fun!

I decorated with a lot of yellow and black in true Charlie Brown fashion. Although, did you know that Charlie Brown did not always wear his oh-so-well-known yellow with black chevron?

I found that little gem out while putting stuff together for this party.

For a little pop there was some red added in, but it was just a tad since Charlie Brown was the star.


One of my favorite things were these simple graphic Charlie Brown poster that I made using PicMonkey.



Ya wanna know what my very favorite part was?

The birthday boy in his custom-made Charlie Brown Shirt was my very favorite part.


The kids' favorite part was lunch.



The lunches were packed with traditional lunch items.

Fresh cut red apple slices.


Pretzel twists.


Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies.


Of course we can't forget the PB and J. Everything was nestled in a cardboard lunch box.


 Just add a glass of milk and let the eating begin.


Happy, happy eaters.



Cute, happy, happy eaters.


We followed lunch with a few games, hot potato Snoopy being the crowd favorite.

Next we went on to coloring and chalkboard fun.


Coloring took a lot of concentration.


They weren't concentrating hard enough to forget about the baked goods though.



Black frosting adds a bit of fun to an otherwise boring cupcake.


Little had a really good time and as always, was very appreciate by saying "thank you" over and over.

When the party was done he said "thank you" to his little friends with Charlie Brown take home gifts.

My new favorite thing is printing on lunch sacks. I am all set to show you how I made up these bags tomorrow in a little tutorial.


Thanks for sticking with me last week while I was MIA. I would send you each a little Charlie Brown Thank You, but that would be a lot of lunch sacks AND more ink than I could buy at Sam's Club.

So accept my little virtual "thank you". You guys are the bestest.

See ya tomorrow!
