Instagram Birthday Party


This was truly an "insta-party"...thrown together last minute! My Daughter's birthday is Valentine's Day, but we decided to have a few of her friends over after school the day before her birthday. I originally saw this idea HERE, and have to give credit to AndersRuff  for the perfect Instagram party with incredible printables. They did a perfect job! I really didn't have time to get the printables, so I threw this together! 
14 Likes for her 14th Birthday!
The cake is a store bought cake.... I  just added an entire jar of sprinkles to the top!
Insta cookies!
Insta-grams...get it?!!!
Click here for instructions...But, super easy...dip top of graham crackers in chocolate, use rainbow "extreme" candies and Mini Oreos as camera lenses!
Little Debbie's Valentine Hearts are always a  crowd fav!
The Photo props are from Target!
An Insta-find....

The table cloth is 3 plastic table cloths
I will say, this took the most time of all!

I just "winged it" and cut and gathered!
I loved it, but the girls never even noticed!!!!
Instagram was the theme so we had a Instagram Scavenger Hunt!
we posted some pictures on instagram using her own #

I like to keep everyone busy...especially a group of teen girls! No time for gossip is a must! I had a lot of things planned...first thing we did was games with conversation hearts!
First game was how many hearts can you stack in a minute

CONVERSATION HEART STACK

How to play: Players get one minute to see how many hearts they can stack up. It’s ok to make multiple stacks. The highest stack wins. 
2nd game was:

CONVERSATION HEART STRAW GAME

How to play: Players get one minute to see how many hearts they can transfer onto the heart by sucking through the straw. The player with the most hearts on her paper heart at the end of one minute wins!

3rd game was:

CONVERSATION HEART RACE

How to play: Players each get a spoon and 3 minutes to see how many hearts they can transfer into A plastic cup that was placed on floor across the room.  Players can NOT use their hands at all in this game. The spoon goes in their mouth and they may carry as many hearts as they want on the spoon. The player who gets the most hearts in their cup at the end of 3 minutes wins.

BTW this game was super messy...don't think I would ever do this again!
How cool are these girls?
They all have skateboards!

Happy Birthday Sabrina.... My Valentine!

That skateboard picture is amazing. My favorite posts of yours are the things you have done - I can't believe it is a "just threw it together" party! And wow - a can of sprinkles really jazzed that cake right up.
