Ellie Turns Five at a Disco Dive

themed birthday five years

Yep, we do the half birthday celebration thing. Why not? In true Leo fashion, I don’t feel like you can celebrate your birthday too much. We do half cupcakes for the girls, and they get as excited as they do on their actual birthdays. Ellie’s half birthday is today which means it’s been 6 months since we celebrated her turning FIVE at her Disco Dive. 

Her disco party was a blast. It was a fun, easy theme that ended up being perfect for her and her little friends.

When planning a kids party, I break it down into a couple categories to focus on. Here they are…

  • Catered Vegan food from Native Foods
  • Disco Cake Pops (Vegan/Gluten Free) 
  • Birthday Cake (Her cake was NOT supposed to be blue, at all, I don’t know why it was made that way. I had to get over it really fast because I was super annoyed!)
  • Disco Ball Cookies with edible pens for kids to color their own
  • Silver ball candies and wrapped chocolates 
  • And a full bar for the adults of course!

  • Dance Party with some coordinated dances (think Macarena, Freeze Dance, Cupid Shuffle)
  • Musical Pillows (as opposed to chairs)
  • Pass the Present (the kids LOVED this one. I wrapped a present 7 or 8 times. Music played while the kids passed the present and when the music stopped, that kid would unwrap a layer. Whoever unwraps it for the last time keeps the gift.)
  • Color your own Disco Cookie
  • Make a pair of Neon Glow Glasses

Ellie would sing this little song around the time of her party. “Come to my disco dive, because I’m… turning… five!” We’re so happy she had a great time… now what rhymes with SIX????
