When you plan a Yo Gabba Gabba party one of the first things you’ll probably find yourself thinking about is your party invitation. The good news is that you have a ton of options at your fingertips.
Fill In Invitations
If you want a really easy way to not only give your guests all the basic party information they need to know – but also to show them what party theme you are going with, these are for you.
When I was a kid we didn’t have theme specific invitations. Ours were typically a photo of some balloons with the phrase ‘It’s Party Time’ on them. Although they gave guests all the basic information they would need in order to come to the party, it didn’t give them any idea what your party theme was.
The makers of the tv show have officially licensed some fill in invitations that you can use for party. Not only did they create some general ones for any age, but they have also created ones specifically for a 2nd birthday party. I’ve posted some pictures here for you to see what they look like.
I love the idea that they have one specifically for a 2nd birthday. Typically 2 is about the age that you would expect a child to be watching this show. It’s a way not only to tie in the Yo Gabba Gabba theme, but you can also tie in the fact that you are celebrating a 2nd birthday as well – fun! I reviewed these Yo Gabba Gabba 2nd birthday party supplies and really liked how well they tied in the age with the supplies!
If you really want a fun way to announce your party theme you can send personalized invitations to your guests. There is a company online called Birthday Express that will let you upload a picture of your child photo along with your party information and they will create custom invitations for you for your party.
I’ve posted a sample to the left – isn’t this adorable? It’s really a fun way to announce your child’s party! And if you have parents like mine, your guests will love that they have this really fun keepsake from your child’s party. Oh, and did I mention that your child will probably love to see themselves on their invitation?
This company is a winner. I have used them for over 10 years for both my kids’ parties and I’ve never had any issues what-so-ever with the great supplies I get from them. You can learn more about their personzlied supplies by checking out our Yo Gabba Gabba party supplies post.
With texting and e-mail becoming more and more the standard contact information for parents, these are great ways to invite others to your Yo Gabba Gabba party. While I would never text a birthday party invitation, e-mailing them sure saves time and money.
While there are a ton of online email invitation sites there is one that I have used before that really makes it easy. Have you heard of e-vite? It’s a fun website that will let you create invitations that you can e-mail to your guests. It allows your guests to RSVP right online and you can track your RSVP’s through their website. You can check out their website here.
Another fun way to announce your birthday party is through YouTube. Here is one that I found for Yo Gabba to give you some ideas. It’s for a little girl named Ayana. You can see how much time and effort went into this invitation! I love how they incorporated pictures of the birthday girl along with Yo Gabba themed photos and music into this video! Such a creative way to send an invitation!
What a lucky little girl! I am sure that she and her family had an amazing time at her party. I forgot to mention, these also make fun keepsakes for your family too. Years from now she will pull up her video and smile remembering how much fun she had. Kids remember this kind of stuff – they really do! My son still remembers his volcano cake from his 3rd birthday party and he’s going to be 14 soon.
Whatever invitation that you use to announce your child’s birthday, make sure that you include all the basic information on there. You need to tell your guests who’s party it is, the date and time, the party address and give your guests an RSVP e-mail or phone number along with a date to RSVP by. Make sure to send them out at least 3 weeks in advance of your party. This gives your party guests plenty of time to clear their schedules for your child’s special day!
If your son or daughter loves DJ Lance and the rest of the gang then you know that their friends know and love them too. So, you don’t want to disappoint them by planning a mediocre party…you want to WOW them with an “over the top” birthday party that they and your child will never forget, right?
You could spend hours scouring the internet for party ideas to really make your party stand out from the rest! (Believe me, I did!) And, with so many out there, how do you choose?
With the work done for you already, sit back and view the best of the best Yo Gabba Gabba party ideas to make your child’s party the best ever and make you the talk of the town!

John Deere birthday parties are so much fun and have become a very popular birthday theme among boys and girls! White little kid doesn’t love big rig trucks and farm equipment, right? There are tons of ideas on the web that we can look to for inspiration. Here are some of the best of the best John Deere party ideas for your son or daughter.
I was so fortunate today to come across this gorgeous party idea online. This beautiful celebration was created by Carey from With Joy for her beautiful daughter’s first birthday. This whole party was simply fabulous from beginning to end and it was something that you could easily replicate at home. Before we dive into replicating this party, take a moment to drink in these beautiful photos.
How wonderful did this party turn out? I love how everything is so stunningly victorian and so simple to pull off! Let’s start with that beautiful sweet table decorations.
See the backdrop? It’s just a simple 4 x 4 plywood board covered with burlap, ribbon and fabric with a little bit of quilt backing to give it some dimension. Backdrops are a simple way to really dress up a table you have pushed up against the wall. Draped across the backdrop are simple paper chains. What makes them so beautiful is that Carey chose to use such unique papers to create her paper chains and tie in the victorian butterfly team. Simple but look at how it really gives this table beautiful dimension!
In her blog Carey mentions that she used the Silhouette die cutting machine to create many of the paper decorations for her party. This cool little paper die cutting tool creates the most amazing designs ~ it’s something on my own wish list because I’m a scrapbooker. It looks like she created all the butterflies, tablecards and wording on the cards with hers and the results are truly professional and stunning!
Carey mentioned that she purchased this great burlap tablecloth from a cute Etsy shop called Sweet Tea and Linen . It really gives the table such a beautiful texture and creates the perfect base to display her lovely deserts!
Speaking of those deserts ~ don’t they look scrumptious displayed in the hodge podge of white glass containers? There look to be Hershey hugs and kisses, great Valentine’s day colored M&M’s, Meringue cookies, cupcakes and decedant dipped Oreo cookies! What, never heard of a dipped Oreo before? The are beautiful additions to any party and crazy easy to make!
Dipped Oreo Cookies
You will need:
Wilton Candymelts in pink, brown and white
Layout your wax paper to put your dipped Oreo cookies on. Melt the candymelts in the microwave and then submerge your cookie in the candymelts. Pull them out and let them drip for about 10-15 seconds. Transfer the cookies to your wax paper and immediately sprinkle with your white sprinkles. Allow them to set until the candy coating becomes hard. That’s it! Easy and delicious ~ my two favorite things! You can pick up the Wilton candymelts at any craft store that sells candy making supplies.
Casey did such a wonderful job with this party, didn’t she? She turned a simple 1st birthday party into a gala event that her birthday guests will never forget. I’m sure when her daughter looks back at these pictures she will really feel special because of all the hard work her mother went to in order to make her 1st birthday so amazing! Great job Casey!
