We had such a fun time this past weekend celebrating my daughters third birthday with a Little Einstein’s Birthday Party. We lucked out yet again this year and had AMAZINGLY gorgeous weather. 80+ degrees! We made sure to have lots of water and places to sit in the shade. We also opened up the pool this weekend and a few of the brave kids jumped in. All free printables are at the bottom of this post.
These are the Little Einstein Birthday Party Invites that I designed:
Note to self – close door and hide cups when photographing! Oh well, real life here people!
I created a number three out of multiple pictures of Olivia over the last year.
I added clusters of white balloons and printed and cut out some Rockets as extra decor. Looks like they’re flying out of the clouds!
Because it was so hot we had to make sure to provide enough drinks. These custom water bottles did the trick!
I turned red paper bags into Rocket’s and added the children’s name with washie tape and a sharpie.
I added personalized bubble, a Little Einstein Cookie, a bracelet, and a Little Einsteins necklace. Along with the pinata candy it was a full bag!
I didn’t sneak anything by you, huh? Those cookies and necklaces are both amazing, right? The cookies are from Decorated Desserts. I cannot say enough good things about Beth! Her cookies are amazing, both the decoration and the taste! She amazed me with the character detail and the #3 cookies were multi-dimensional. The staff lines were flat with the white and the notes actually were on top so it added so much depth! Want to stay up to date with Decorated Desserts? Like the Decorated Desserts Facebook page!
As you can see, everyone enjoyed them! My Memere has played piano for 73 years and she absolutely fell in love with the musical threes and brought an extra home with her.
The other nifty little favor is those bottle cap necklaces! They came from Heather at Little Chic Bowtique, along with my daughters super cute June hairbow:
I was so impressed with this bow! It actually STAYED IN PLACE the whole party. That’s HUGE! Make sure you tune in tomorrow because Little Chic Bowtique has something special in store for my readers!
The picture of the goodie bag above shows the type of bottlecap necklaces the girls received and here’s a shot of the ones the boys got in their bags:
I had a table set up with recycled items, such as toilet paper and paper towel rolls, shoe boxes, bread crumb containers, rubber bands, glue, tape, streamers and markers. I called the kids over and let them know that Big Jet had broken Quincy’s instruments and we couldn’t sing Happy Birthday to Olivia until we replaced them. They got to work making some cool things! I don’t usually do a lot of activities at parties, just tend to let them play, but I’m glad I did this one! The kids got SO into it. I kept having to say, “are you down yet? We’re ready to have cupcakes!” and they’d be like, “ONE more second!”. Once they were all done we got into a group, called everyone over to the food table and the kids started to play. It was too cute. We sang and the cupcakes came out and it really was fun. Here’s a few of the kids making their instruments:
I didn’t make an extravagant cake this time around. I had a lot going on this week (husbands gram passed away and my mom was in the hospital). I made some simple cupcakes and added cupcake toppers.
It worked well! We made it through 5 kids, but Landon is a baseball player and knows how to yield a bat, so he busted that thing right open! No one minded though when they saw the candy and other treats fall out!
The other piece of decor I had was a LARGE (48″ x 60″) Rocket! He was flying between two trees with all the characters inside. My daughter ran up to that thing and kissed it she was so excited! UPDATE: I did a Google search for XL images of Rocket. Unfortunately I DID NOT save the file that I sent to my printer so I am unable to assist you. My best recommendation is to do a search for Little Einstein’s Rocket and see if you can find a high quality image. If you are unsure, send it to a printer and they can tell you how big they can blow it up. I’ve learned my lesson and will make sure to save any files like this in the future! Sorry I can’t be of more help. 🙁
You may remember that I made my daughters June outfit. She still loves it and we found some sparkly red shoes to go with it at Target.
It was a great birthday and Olivia asked me if we could do it again the next day!

Adorable! Happy birthday to Olivia! Looks like she had an awesome day!
Jill @ Create.Craft.Love.
Thanks so much for sharing all your fabulous ideas! My daughter is 2 and is really into Little Einsteins, so I am pinning this… just in case! 😉
So awesome! My daughter watches Einsteins every morning, and I know she’ll love seeing them at Disney in a few weeks. I am with you on the cupcakes-except for their SMASH cake on their first birthdays, my kids have always had cupcakes. Very cute!
Hi I was wondering how are you able to make these craftly yet adorable party themes? Is there a certain software you buy?, I’m new to this and I’m curious to know because a friend of mine is looking for socket monkey cutesy stuff and want to help her out but yet don’t want to break her pocket as well. You made for me the Pinkalicious stuff for my daughter Asia!!!! I am so in love with it and it was the talk of the party!!!! Thanks!!!!!
I am a graphic designer. I went to school to learn how to create these types of things on the computer. I use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop for most of the items I create. 🙂 I’m so glad you liked your personalized printables! I hope Asia had a great party.
Cute, cute party! Hugs and blessings, Cindy
I can NOT believe the work you put into that party! SO FUN!!!
Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies (please, notice the new url for my blog), under the Page 6 post on May. 25, 2012. Thanks again.
Thank you so much for sharing this cool Little Einstein party ideas! My daughter is also a big fan of this character. And it’s very difficult to find a party decoration with Little einstein themes. You have made one little girl very happy!
How did you make the huge rocket hanging from the tree? Would you be willing to sell it?
I had it printed at a local offset printer. Unfortunately I am not going to be selling it. It is currently hanging in my daughters room. 🙂
I am currently planning my son’s 3 year birthday “Rocket” party. This post gave me great inspiration! Can you share how you made the pinata? I like the bag idea a lot. Thanks!
Hi Lana! There is a post on the pinata here: http://www.733blog.com/2012/05/diy-paper-bag-pinata.html
Hi Kim. Thank you very much! The big party is this weekend! I have contacted an offset printer here in town to get a rocket printed like yours. The image I sent is too small. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Thank you so much for sharing such wonderful ideas. What great ideas! You are so creative!
Thank you so much for the detailed post! My son, Griffin, will be two in November and I had decided not to “do” a theme since he isn’t into any of the popular characters and shows. But he LOVES Little Einsteins. Now I have everything I need for a party he’ll love!
YAY! I’m so glad. Hope Griffin has an amazing birthday.
What was behind the giant rocket? it looks awesome! it is just a print?
congrats,the party looks amazingly fun!
Yes, Rocket was professionally printed and then mounted on foam core. I hung him from some rope (just duct taped him on!). 🙂
This is amazing! You have so many adorable ideas here! My daughter will be 2 in December and I’ve been trying to figure out what to do for a Little Einsteins theme party at our home… you’ve given me some AWESOME ideas. Thank you so much for sharing!
What picture did you use for the big print of rocket and the Einsteins? I want to have one made for my daughters bday in December to hang on the bounce house since I can not find anyone who has little Einsteins.
I just did a Google image search and found a high res version of Rocket. It was a few pages in. I did find him again recently so you’ll just have to look around. Good luck!
Also very excited to have come across this? Has anyone found the large Little Einsteins file? I’ve googled and googled and can only find a 1mp file and to print that out at such a large size would be too fuzzy! Can anyone help??
Hi, first of all congrats on being so talented!!!! i wanted to know where , what store or website,you got the bottle caps for the necklaces you made? I am having a hard time finding the right ones that have the holes big enough for the necklace. Also, where can you get a print big enough for Rocket? Did you just take them a picture and they enlarged in and printed it?
Thank you so much for posting all of this!! My son will be 3 next month and loves Einsteins…as you know there is nothing out there to purchase. Really appreciate it!
What a fun party idea, my daughter is turning 2 and Little Einsteins is her favorite. Thank you for sharing your talents with those of us who are not so creatively inclined!
Hi. Everything looks so nice, I wish I would have the creativity to do this as well.
Can you please tell me what did you use to create the number 3 photo collage? We already have the pictures printed but I don’t know what type of cardboard to use and where to buy it to attached them to.
Daniela, I actually just taped it to the wall. If you need to attach it to something, poster board would be easy to cut and attach things to. Good luck!
Thank you again. We bought a foam board, so we will see how it goes 🙂
Hi firstly thanks so much for providing the files. My 4 year old loves Little Einsteins and I’m trying to figure out how to use the invitation file so I can addy own info into it? Also we’re you able to find a file for rocket on google recently?
Simply download and save the invite to your computer. Open it in Adobe Reader, click in the fields and type in your info. I have not looked for a rocket image on google, unfortunately.
