*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!!

We are doing a horse and princess party for my DD on Oct. 15th. I got a bunch of small boxes that I am going to wrap in plan colored wrapping paper and decorate with horse and princess pictures (you could use toy Story pictures). At the party, I am going to devide the kids up into two teams. Each team member will have to ride their teams hobby horse around the boxes and back to the begining. Where it will be the next kids turn. First team to finish wins a prize.

I will add other games when I post about her party. So check them out for ideas, as well.

Gianna'sMommy - Etsy is awesome!! I can't wait to see your party pics. I asked Avi if she wanted the whole toy story gang but she insisted on Jessie & Bullseye only lol.

Craftylady - I know right! She definitely made my day.

Awesomeamylynn - I am going to look for some stick horses at dollar tree, they would go well with the theme.

I might have to borrow some ideas for my 4 year old's Toy Story Party. What are you doing for the cake? I've been looking for Toy Story cake pictures to get ideas & can't find any, yet. If no one has spoken for them, yet, we could use the extra bags you have. Both invites are adorable! Seeing your pictures reminds me how much I still need to do for the party next month, but I gotta get through my 8 year old's Paris party on Sat before I can focus on it. Would love any ideas you might want to share. Thanks!

For the cake I'm just going to make a two layer cake with cowprint on the bottom, yellow with red trim on the top with bullseye & jessie figures.  I really suck at cakes but I'm making hers this year because lately we've been buying bakery cakes that are so not worth the money.  I'm making cupcakes as well, if the cake is a fail they'll be back up.

You can have the bags if no one else is interested by Tuesday!  I think you're the only one so far.  If there is someone else I'll do a drawing type thing. 
A Paris party sounds so cute!  Hope you post pics afterwards!

Just curious - what is a Paris party?  Are we talking the city or Hilton?

Awesome!  My nephew turning 4 in November wants a Spiderman party.  I don't have too many ideas for a spidey party though, and hate that their birthdays are so close together and then it's the holidays :/

The city. It started out as a Magic Tree House Night Of The New Magicians Party, but ended up just being a Paris party.
