REAL PARTIES: Night Owl PJ Club Party

Night Owl Pajama Slumber Party Ideas

Today’s Real Party feature comes from Jamie at Giggle Dust Parties and is just WAY TOO CUTE!

It’s a super-colorful “Night Owl Pajama Club” theme featuring tons of adorable details (like that ridiculously cute owl pillow from Target!), a sweet make-your-own sundae dessert bar, and a fabulous bedtime-inspired table and “Night Owl Clubhouse“… does this sound like a little girl’s dream party or what?!

“I created this “Night Owl Pajama Club Party” for my daughter Mackenzie’s 8th Birthday!

The inspiration for this party came from several things: my daughter’s wish to have a sleepover party, an adorable stuffed pillow I saw at Target, and the fabulous “bed” tables from Jenn at HWTM and Donna at Party Wishes.

This party was hosted in the evening from 7-9pm and the girls came dressed in their favorite PJs.

The activities of the party centered around the girls becoming members of the “Night Owl Pajama Club: Night Owls love to stay up late, dance in the dark, hang out with their friends at the Night Owl Clubhouse and dine on their favorite snacks: cupcakes and ice cream sundaes!

The “bed” was designed from two twin comforters that were sewn together to act as a tablecloth. I used a coordinating sheet set for the pillow cover and bed sheets that were visible at the head of the bed.

The plates and mugs were from Rosanna Inc, and I found the brown chargers on the fall closeout aisle at Target. They really were a perfect match and made the plates pop!

The napkins were sewn by my Mother using material we found at a local fabric store.

And, last but not least, my hubby made me the headboard and footboard that completed the bed table!

My favorite element of the party was the Night Owl Clubhouse. I mean really, how cool is this..!

A girly retreat with pretty fabrics, plush comfy pillows, and your best girl friends to chat with!

This was the clubhouse that I always tried to build myself as a child but was never really able to pull it off with the dining room chairs and various knitted afghans from around the house!

I had so much fun designing the sundae bar trying to channel the “Amazing Amys”: Amy Atlas and Amy at Eat.Drink.Chic

I used a shower curtain from Target for the backdrop, various containers from HomeGoods to hold the toppings, and the Soda Fountain Cups by Rosanna, Inc.

Not bad for a first try! More importantly, the girls loved it and really enjoyed making their own sundaes! I knew the party was a success when I overheard several girls saying that “this was the best party EVER!”

LOVE every detail!! I’m doing an owl theme as well for my daughter’s 1st birthday. Could you tell me how you made the pink boxes on the ice cream bar? They look like shoes boxes wrapped in wrapping paper. I’ve been trying to find wrapping paper that matches the shower curtain and can’t find the right color. Thanks for your help and amazing ideas!

Hi There,

I just love this party and was wondering where you got the signs that say dream and imagine with the beads. They are just adorable!

Thanks so much!

Bonnie SAYS:

Where did you get the beads/balls for the hoop on top of the signs Imagine and Dream? Or were these made from paper? Out did yourself on this one!! Great Super Job!!I am sure people tell ya to be a party planner as they tell me all of the time. But, folks dont really want to pay for all the details that make the difference. Not to mention the TIME involved!

Hi Chantall –

Laura – I purchased the signs at Walmart and then mounted them on wooden posts that my husband made for them.

Jennifer – the polka dot boxes were handed out to each of the guests – inside were their Night Owl PJ Club “night shirt” and official club membership card. The girls went home with both of these items.

Chantall – Jenn is correct! I bought the owl at Target in the kids bedding section.
