Emoji birthday party
For their 9th birthday, we threw a big Emoji birthday party for the twins. It’s such a fun theme for a kids party and we had such fun with all the party ideas and decorations.
But listen, deciding on a party theme for their birthday was no easy task. We went all over the place from Minecraft and Video games to Unicorns and a Hawaiian Luau. It was eventually Abi who said “Hey, what about an Emoji party?” and I immediately jumped on the band wagon. It’s such a fun birthday party theme and I knew there would be no shortage of inspiration online.
Still, I wanted a little help so I enlisted the services of Marissa from Konfetti Love to help with the decor and you guys, she did such a fantastic job. Her ideas were so lovely and they absolutely made the party. She also organised some of the snacks and all the baked goods (because listen, I don’t have the time or patience to make gorgeous emoji cookies, cupcakes and that stunning cake) from Melinda’s Catering.
And I mean, have you EVER seen anything more adorable than these poop emoji cupcakes? They were definitely a hit with the kids and parents alike. I also just loved the Emoji birthday cake she made for us (it’s pretty much an identical replica of the cake emoji, isn’t it?).
On the food front I kept things simple and we took inspiration from all the kids’s favourite food emojis. Pizza, doughnuts, popcorn and cookies. What more could you want?
I also decided to have a little “refreshments center” for all the parents who joined. A little gin & tonic action went down and honestly, I will never host another birthday party without a G&T station. Best. Idea. Ever!
