A Night Owl Pajama Club Party!

Posted on Tuesday 10 November 2009

I recently hosted a Night Owl Pajama Club Party for my daughter Mackenzie’s 8th Birthday!  

Night Owl PJ Club

The inspiration for this party came from several things: my daughter’s wish to have a sleepover party, an adorable stuffed pillow I saw at Target, and the fabulous “bed” tables from Jenn at HWTM and Donna at Party Wishes.

This party was hosted in the evening from 7-9pm and the girls came dressed in their favorite PJs.  The activities of the party centered around the girls becoming members of the “Night Owl Pajama Club:”  Night Owls love to stay up late, dance in the dark, hang out with their friends at the Night Owl Clubhouse and dine on their favorite snacks: cupcakes and ice cream sundaes!

The “bed” was designed from two twin comforters that were sewn together to act as a tablecloth.  I used a coordinating sheet set for the pillow cover and bed sheets that were visible at the head of the bed.  The plates and mugs were from Rosanna, Inc  and I found the brown chargers on the fall closeout aisle at Target.  They really were a perfect match and made the plates pop!  The napkins were sewn by my Mother using material we found at a local fabric store.  And, last but not least, my hubby made me the headboard and footboard that completed the bed table!

Night Owl Table My favorite element of the party was the Night Owl Clubhouse. I mean really, how cool is this!  A girly retreat with pretty fabrics, plush comfy pillows, and your best girl friends to chat with!  This was the clubhouse that I always tried to build myself as a child but was never really able to pull it off with the dining room chairs and various knitted afghans from around the house!

I had so much fun designing the sundae bar trying to channel the “Amazing Amys”: Amy Atlas and Amy at Eat.Drink.Chic. I used a shower curtain from Target for the backdrop, various containers from HomeGoods to hold the toppings, and the Soda Fountain Cups from Rosanna, Inc.   Not bad for a first try! 

More importantly, the girls loved it and really enjoyed making their own sundaes!

I knew the party was a success when I overheard several girls saying that “this was the best party EVER!”

    Amazing job Jamie. I really love this party. Pity my daughter (2yrs old) is too young for a PJ Clubhouse party, but I’m storing these ideas for when she’s old enough!

    I love the striped pillows you had in the clubhouse! Did you make those or buy them? If so – do you mind sharing?

    Hi Robyn – Most of the pillows were from Home Goods. The long striped pillows were from Target. I purchased the pillows in the August/September time frame during the “Back to College” sales.
