*New Pinata Pics* Toy Story Jessie/Cowgirl Party Progress, Ideas, Advice

Posted by   + Show Post

 

I finished the pinata & I think it turned out okay for such an odd shaped character lol. His snout looks a little questionalble...but who cares he's being smashed!  It's about 38 inches tall.  I had to paint it because it's impossible to find brown tissue paper around here :( I tried to order online(kinda last minute) but they only sold in bulk and etsy prices were crazy.  But the craft paint was cheap & it worked.  I can't wait to see this thing smashed because it was a *swear word* to make lol.  What do you think??  Oh, and if anyone has any other fun game ideas please post em here.  I have lots of pirzes for the kids!!



Hi I'm back!  I've had computer problems since December and then Photo problems and blah!  My computer crashed, I lost photshop, problems with Flickr...  But I recently bought a new photoshop disk & I'm using photobucket now for pics. 

Anyway, the next theme is Cowgirl Jessie!  I need help on deciding which invites to print(have to print tomorrow) and I also have an extra pack of goodybags if anyone throwing a Jessie party wants them.  I'll pay for shipping, I just want to make sure someone who gets them is having a Toy Story or Jessie party.  If a lot of people want them just post saying so it and I'll do the random.org thing in about a week. 

On to the pics!  Here's what I bought/made so far.

 

Outfits for pics & maybe for the party.  My grandma made the skirt, I bought the shirt for $7, underskirt for $8, the other outfit I just used clothes from a thrift store and painted them to look like Jessie's oh and added some white felt for the fringies.  Felt hat from walmart that I later took off the black and added white ribbon.

Boots from Disney online shop for $25

Gift from Disney, got it all on sale!

 

Centerpieces?  I tried to find actual cowboy boots for this but I found these cups for about $1 each, not sure about them though...not what I wanted...Opinions?

 

Charms for an activity.  Jessie & Buzz for the boys.  Got these off of ebay.

 

Got these little figures off of ebay for super cheap!  I bought the labes from someone on esty & printed them off. 

Cake topper

Jumbo wall decorations from ebay.  Not a deal lol.  All of the Jessie party stuff was way expensive on ebay :(

Banner I made with printables & scrapbook paper.  I don't have a cricut :/

For the cake table.  I also got some of those push up cake pop containers & hopefull I can make some cute treats to go along with the theme.

Hanging decorations I made with left over paper from her last party & pics printed off the internet.

Hat, not sure if I should put the "A" decoration on or not...what do you think?

Hats for Guests

Bandanas for guests.  Slappy bracelets for pinata.

Decorations

Okay invites, which one should I print?

#1

#2

I also need ideas for games.  I tried & tried to find pony rides but there's nothing like that around here.  She doesn't care though she said we can just play games lol.  We are having a pinata(I'm ATTEMPTING to make a Bullseye pinata), printed off pin the tail on bullseye, root beer ring toss, making bracelets, making farm balloon animals, and possible a needle in a haystack game.  Not sure about that one since it sounds so messy.  Any ideas?  For crafts or games?  I have a lot of prizes for the kids that I got from target clearance & the dollar store.  Thanks!!

Yes they did, but we recreated the group and we miss all your post and party ideas, so find us, we did it under the same name, lol 

Quoting GeorGeZilla:

Aw thanks!!  The party is fast approaching, I hope I get everything done in time!  Sorry, no Justin Bieber ideas come to mind, I don't know anything about that kid other than he sings lol.

Oh yeah, I was going to ask, did they merge groups or something?  Why the name change?  I like the old group better since I'm not huge on holidays :/ but I'm probably in the minority...Just wondering!
