aDORYble Finding Dory Party

Choosing a theme for my daughter's 4th birthday party came quite organically. She's a huge fan of Disney Princesses--all of them, really--but she just couldn't decide which one would headline her party. Cue the most aDORYble movie of the summer, Finding Dory. She LOVED it; the whole family loved it, watching it not once, but two times in the theater. It was then that she decided she wanted a Finding Dory party. Well, Mama loves a good theme and swam with it!

The Birthday Girl

The Invite
 
I designed it myself, using the chosen color theme for the party. Pink got thrown in there for the birthday girl; it's her most favorite color. 

Greeting Guests
The walkway leading to the front door asked the guests to, like Dory, follow the shells home, or in this case, to the party.
 
Purple shells (Dory's Mom, Jenny's, favorite) lined the front walkway all the way to the backyard. Excuse the lack of green on my lawn; this Cali drought is no joke.

The Party Starts Here

The main attraction, other than the birthday girl, was this super awesome water slide we rented for the day. It was a huge hit and the kiddos couldn't get enough!!!
