I have a love hate relationship with Pinterest. I love the fact that I can find the perfect birthday party ideas, but I hate Pinterest (or myself) that I can never seem to find the right decorations to pull the party together. On top of the that I spend hours trying to find everything I need for the “Perfect Party.”
When Sophie La Giraffe reached out to me and said they had a “Pinterest Party in a Box” I had to try it out and see if it was what it was all cracked up to be. For $24.23 Sophie La Giraffe sends you a complete birthday kit.

Party Planning and Party
Sophie La Giraffe was voted 2017 Family Choice Award winner for this innovative idea! When my birthday kit arrived I was impressed by the initial overall quality of the product! It was so convenient that I could get the invitations sent out straightaway because everything was included.
After sending the invites out, we planned what we would do at the party and waited for the big day to arrive! The night before, we put up the banners and I baked the cupcakes in the cute cupcake liners, after frosting them I topped them with the cupcake toppers. Easy peasy! And so cute!
Next, we blew up the provided balloons, which were a total disappointment. First of all,they didn’t match anything and second, the purple one appeared to be patched with a blue balloon patch. I quickly hid these in the laundry room so no one would see them.
The next morning we set the table for the party, with the cups, plates, and napkins and we were ready to go! Our friends arrived, and we played outside and then came in for cupcakes and to sing Happy Birthday. The moms loved the cute themed and thought it was perfect! I loved how the straws did not get soggy like some paper straws do! Our guests left and we cleaned up. This was by far the easiest party we have ever thrown because there was very little prep work involved! It was perfect for not wanting to spend a ton of time trying to pull together the perfect birthday party!
With all things, there are usually some disappointments. I wish there was some sort of table covering provided that matched the theme for even easier clean up. I also wish the balloons matched the colors. Yes, they had the characters of the plates on them, but the colors were all wrong and a major distraction that I hid so no one saw them. I also wish after you buy the original kit that you are able to buy additional pieces of some of the things a la carte. With 12 of everything it doesn’t really allow you to plan for siblings and more than one guest per invitation without going to the store to find paper products that coordinate! Lastly, the invitations were specific to a 1st birthday party; I wish this was more generic so you could use for other events or birthday years!
Overall, Sophie La Giraffe helps you throw a fantastic birthday party and saves you a ton of time at a great price! For more information or to order yours click here.
