Gymnastics Party -4yr- The Wild Theme
Irene in Schertz, Texas USA
I planned my daughter's 4th birthday at her gymnastics gym. But I also wanted to have a theme other than the Olympics. SO we went with a "Wild" theme.
The invitation said, "Time to bounce, tumble and roll, (name) is turning 4! Join us for a WILD time at the gym!" I made the invitations by going to a scrapbook store and buying 12x12 wild animal printed paper (leopard, tiger, zebra, giraffe, cheetah) and some clear vellum paper(12x12).
The invitations were cut to 6x6 squares and I overlaid the vellum with the party information on it. We then tied the vellum and wild print paper with orange and red organza (sheer) ribbon. I also found some clear, resealable 61/4x 61/4 envelopes! It showcased my invitations so adorably! I added red party balloon confetti to really make it look like a pretty festive package.
As party goods we bought clear cellophane bags and stuffed the bottom of the bags with shinny shredded red paper and then lined them with leopard tissue paper on top. This made the bags go with the wild theme since I wasn't able to find any wild animal print loot bags.
I then carefully placed all the wild animal print goodies inside the tissue. Loot items included a yoyo, pencil, pad, wrist bracelet, visor, bubbles, top and a First Place gold medal. I was also able to find wild animal print latex balloons and a Tigger Mylar balloon that said " I am WILD for you!"
The best part is that the coaches take the children for one hour of fun stations using all of the gym and then we meet upstairs in a "WILDLY" decorated room for pizza, cake & ice cream, and punch. WE open presents and pass out loot bags they all have a GREAT WILD TIME!
I went to several web sites to find envelopes (61/4x 61/4), loot items, balloons, and organza ribbon. These included: clearenvelopes.com orientaltrading.com organzaribbons.com Our party is in October
