Yo Gabba Gabba Birthday Party for 2!

Our older 2 kids are 2 years and 1 day apart so they have shared a birthday party the last 3 years. Luckily it has been easy to find unisex themed stuff they both like! Yo Gabba Gabba is a favorite show here.. It is just now starting to get popular enough for there to be party supplies, but they are hard to find and SPENDY! I did splurge and get a package of the radio gift boxes (even though we didn't use them for that purpose) and the radio piñata.

First let me share who took these pics!! Michelle at Casual Camera Photography and Stephanie at Memories by Stephanie

I was trying to keep it mellow and not do too much! The cupcakes are just a box mix ( I know.. totally cheating!) Rainbow chip.. since the colors match all the Gabba Land Characters! And I just used cool whip for the topping.. since there was PLENTY of sugar without extra frosting!



Rainbow licorice in coordinating colors.. clear plastic paint bucket from the craft store.

Mini water bottles and ribbon with Gabba Land friends on them!



White Chocolate dipped Marshmallows with jimmy's (stuck in the favor boxes!)



The kids played Pin the Eye on Muno (He only has one Eye!) I just got some craft paper and free hand cut him out (which is why his arms are SOO uneven)



The pinata was HARD to get open.. but once it did..

Not sure why, but as soon as our oldest turned 4.. it's nearly impossible to get a picture of him.. Lovin this one though!


Our little Birthday Girl just couldn't wait for her candle to be lit and the singing to get over with.. and check out that hand.. Funny thing is she had 1 sucker in EACH hand while she is licking her cupcake!


You can see in the picture above some FREE Yo Gabba Gabba downloadable coloring pages from Nick Jr.com!  We had those out on the table for the kids to color in between or while they were having their goodies!

No pictures of the goodie bags.. but I went simple and used plain lunch bag style in the Gabba friends colors.. Each bag had a Yo Gabba Gabba CD and some other goodies!

I have a feeling this was our last joint party.. sniff!  They are both already talking about next year.. and they are NOT on the same path! 

The baby is 6 months old.. I should probably get to work on his party!

  2. What a wonderful party for your kids! I love the white chocolate covered marshmallows, what a great idea.
    I haven't heard of this show yet, but now that you mentioned it I will probably start seeing things at Wal-Mart for it :)


    I always do box cupcakes :)

    Hope you're having a super day!!

  3. Your cupcakes are so pretty! Who cares if they are a mix. Sometimes I think if you are going to take the time to pipe out the icing, it's okay to use a mix. Great jobs :)

  4. Wow! I love this party! I love the "Pfoofa"...or "Foofa" character on the cupcake - the one being licked! ("Pfoofa"...the girly pink character is a fave of my daughter's!) Great job!
