Plants Vs. Zombies Birthday Party

Hi Guys!

Wednesday was Dasean’s 10th Birthday!

This year he wanted us to surprise him with a theme, and since he loves the Plants Vs. Zombies games so much, we decided to go with a Plants Vs. Zombies Birthday Party for him!

20180220_224016

Before i share all the Plants Vs. Zombies stuff, i want to share more about this special little boy we call Dasean.

I’m not sure how he can be 10 years old already, it really went by too fast.

I made these collages of him, with pictures from over the years…

dasean new to 8

dasean 9 to 10

He has changed so much from that tiny little newborn baby.

He is the sweetest the guy. He is so caring and helpful. He is also ridiculously funny! My world is definitely a brighter and happier place because he is in it!

Birthdays always make me a little sad, because for me it’s a reminder that the time we get with them is so short and i just love them so much that i can’t imagine not seeing them/being with them everyday.

Anyways, enough with the sadness, let’s dive into all the Plants Vs. Zombies good stuff.

*I will try to link whatever i can for you to easily find it, in case you are also going to be throwing a Plants Vs. Zombies party!*

I’ll start with the cake, because you can’t have a birthday without cake… well actually you can, but it wouldn’t be as yummy!

20180220_221327

We ordered the cake from a grocery store bakery, and we added on the fence and the Plants Vs. Zombies figurines.

I got the fence at Hobby Lobby, here is the link for that. —-> Fence

I got the figurines on Amazon, here is the link for that. —> PVZ Figurines

Up next is a decoration i made, that we had sitting on the dinning room table.

20180220_224016

The grass tablecover i got at Zurcher’s, but they don’t have it listed online. I found one on Amazon that is similar and here is the link for that. —> Grass Tablecover

The little fenced in yard thing, i got from Hobby Lobby. Here is the link for that. —> White Fence Container 

The plush toys i got on Amazon, here are the links for those. —> Bonk Choy & Cactus Plant

The Sun and leaves were from Hobby Lobby. Here are the links for those. —> Sun & Leaves

Next, here are some snacks i created.

20180221_175520

For the pudding cups: I used Snack Pack Pudding, topped with crushed oreos and then topped with green sixlets (for the Pea Shooter’s peas). Then i printed out the Pea Shooter Printable i made and taped them onto the Snack Packs. You can download that printable for yourself, HERE!!!

For the grape cups: I used a plastic cup, green grapes, and marshmallows. First, i added in some grapes. Then, i put to marshmallows on top of those grapes. Next, i put more grapes on top of the marshmallows. Finally, i drew a zombie face on the plastic cups.

Now i’m going to share my Crazy Dave’s Beard Shop…

You can’t have a Plants Vs. Zombies party without Crazy Dave, right?!

IMG_3787

I found these beards at Hobby Lobby, here is the link for them. —> Beards

I made the Crazy Dave’s Beard Shop printable, which you can download for yourself here. —> Crazy Dave’s Beard Shop

All my kids loved wearing these beards…

Now to show you the rest of the decorations and wrap things up because this post is getting pretty long…

I got the Sunflower from Hobby Lobby, but unfortunately they don’t have it online.

I got the Zombie caution tape from Amazon, here is the link for that. —> Zombie Caution Tape

IMG_3789

I got the Cactus from Hobby Lobby, but unfortunately they don’t have it online.

I also created this happy birthday banner for him. However, i didn’t create it into a PDF yet so there is no link for it!

I hope you guys enjoyed this look into Dasean’s 10th Birthday/ Plants Vs. Zombies Party!!

Happy Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year! Or should i say, Gung Hay Fat Choy! {Which means “Happy New Year” in Chinese}

img_6377

That picture is from our Chinese New Year celebration back in 2015!

I didn’t go all out like i did that year with celebrating. In fact this year’s celebration only included me buying a big bag of fortune cookies and my kids spitting them out because they “tasted really bad like chemicals”. So yay me! Mom of the year award stuff going on over here. (Totally being sarcastic)

Anyways, I wanted to share with you some Chinese New Year printables i have created over the years.

chinese-new-year-1

It has over 30 pages, which include:
