I'd like to share with you a really awesome party I went to.
The guests of honor
These are their cute Moms, Rachel (on the left) and Ashley (my daughter, on the right). Considering that their kids have the same obsession and birthday's so close together, it only seemed fitting they would combine their ideas and efforts and throw one big Gabba extravaganza!
This party didn't lack details, and it's my privilege to share this post in the hope that you find inspiration for throwing a fun children's party.
As we entered through the front door, we were greeted by these fun gabba characters on the sofa.
As we walked out to the back yard, lanterns and pom poms were hanging from the trees for a festive look. For an easy tutorial about making these pom poms, click here.
This colorful table was full of snacks and goodies.
I never realized how much yummy food is Gabba colored! I thought this was a brilliant display for the party and so delicious too.
They made Gabba punch!
I loved their creative idea to decorate each table for the guests in a different gabba color!
Gabba toys were brought out for all the kids to play with. This little cutie is also my grand-daughter and the birthday girl's sister!
Gabba characters made from poster paper were hung on the house.
Here's some of the kids waiting to get their faces painted.
and of course there was cake!
The birthday kids sampling the labors of love.
Do you know how easy it is to get this many kids to look at the camera at the same time? It isn't, but this was the best shot of about 15!
The party was a huge success! These two kiddos are one year older and will most likely remember a lot of the details of their fun day. At least they'll always have the pictures to remind them of the love and attention their Moms put into their party.

Amazing children's parties can be achieved without spending a ton of money. If your child has a favorite character, chances are that they have toys and stuffed animals that would work great as decorations. Solid-colored party goods are usually less expensive than all character-themed items.
Whether you know someone who would enjoy a Gabba or a different themed party, I hope you've been inspired by seeing the fun ideas these Moms created for their little ones!
