Shimmer & Shine Party Space

Shimmer and Shine Party Area

My lovely daughter Isla had a fantastic 7th birthday party with a Shimmer & Shine theme. The celebration was full of joy, laughter, and of course, lots of fun with our family and friends. Isla was so excited to dress up as her favorite character, Shine, and looked adorable as a genie. Her friends were equally amazed when they arrived at the venue and it was evident that everyone was going to have a wonderful time.

I spent a lot of time preparing for the party, making sure that the Shimmer & Shine party area was primarily pink and purple with touches of blue and gold. I got all of the Shimmer & Shine Party Decorations and Supplies from my online party store, Katie J Design and Events.

There was customised banners, bunting, posters, party bags, and labels for water, juice, and chocolates. They were all personalised with Isla's name and age, making them extra special.

DIY Shimmer & Shine Party Decor

I had a blast creating many of the stunning Shimmer and Shine decorations for my daughter's party. Although it took some time, they were simple to make. The little bracelets and headpieces I made were a hit among her friends and perfectly matched the theme.

Jewelled Bracelets

I used a Hand Saw to cut up Cardboard rolls to make Bracelets. They were spray painted Gold and Beautiful Jewels were added afterwards with the Hot Glue Gun.

Jewelled Head Pieces

I cut lengths of Metallic Gold Elastic measured to fit Isla's head. And joined them with the Sewing Machine. I added a Jewel to each with the Hot Glue Gun.

Genie Bottle Centre Pieces

I saved my Empty Wine Bottles to make Table Centrepieces. Painting them with Pink, Purple and Blue Glass Paint. I added some Gold Washi Tape and some Shimmer & Shine stickers with Mod Podge to finish the look.

Fancy Glasses

The Girls were most Excited that they got to drink from Champagne Glasses. I brought Plastic Champagne Flutes from the Supermarket and added Adhesive Gems to them. They looked pretty special and so did the girls drinking from them on the day.

Shimmer and Shine Party Bags & Favours

There was lots of Goodies for the Girls to take home with them at Isla's Party. All of the Guests were given Gold Jewelled Bracelets & a Head Piece upon arrival. They took home with them a Party Bag, Personalised Chocolate, a Colouring Book and a small box of Crayons.

I printed the Colouring Books on A4 sheets of paper and made a Cover page with a Shimmer and Shine Picture and the wording Isla's 7th Birthday Party. They were a Great Back up plan if it decided to rain and they weren't able to play on the Jumping Castle.

The Party Bags were filled with a Shimmer & Shine Tattoo, Shimmer & Shine Necklace, Shimmer & Shine Hair Clip, Shimmer & Shine Rubber Bracelet, a Party Whistle, an LCM bar, a Lollipop and a packet of chips.

Shimmer and Shine Party Drinks

At Isla's Shimmer and Shine Party, the little ones enjoyed refreshing drinks such as water and Pop top juice. These drinks were made even more exciting with fun party labels that were personalised just for them. Plus, we didn't have to worry about keeping them chilled as they could be stored in the esky with no risk of the labels getting ruined as they are waterproof!

Shimmer and Shine Birthday Cake

Isla's Shimmer and Shine Birthday Cake was absolutely adorable and incredibly easy to make, my friend! To get started, I baked two chocolate sponges the night before I decorated the cake, and I trimmed the tops to make them even.

Then, I iced the bottom layer with some lovely purple Betty Crocker frosting and added the top layer, giving it a generous coating of frosting too. I got a bit carried away and spent quite a bit of time adding little gold cashous balls to the edges for a cute border.

Next, it was time to attach the dolls to the top of the cake. However, I knew that Shimmer and Shine might have a bit of trouble sitting up on their own, so I came up with a solution. I twisted some tie wire around a wooden skewer and attached it to their backs while they were in a seated position. To make things easier, I covered the skewer and wire in cling wrap for easy insertion into the cake.

And just like that, my friend, we had a delightful Shimmer and Shine cake which only took about 40 minutes to make (plus baking time).
