Rosie’s Roundup: Toy Story Birthday Theme

Throwing birthday parties for my kids has been one of the most fun parts of motherhood! From gardens to ice cream to Jet’s Hole in One first birthday party we threw last spring, I live for a good theme! If you followed along on Stories the past few months you know that we initially planned on having a Mickey/Minnie Mouse themed birthday for Rosie. For the past few months she’s been really into that…until she saw Toy Story lol. That movie has been on repeat in our house for the last few weeks and Rosie is obsessed with it. I forgot how cute of a movie it was—I honestly don’t think I’ve seen it all the way through since I was a kid! We made a last minute decision to switch the them of her 3rd birthday party to Toy Story instead and decided to call it Rosie’s Roundup!

The Toy Story theme was so much fun to bring to life and I had a really easy time finding lots of inspo on Pinterest that helped guide some of the DIY projects we did! We ordered most of the decor and stuff for the DIYs on Amazon, so it was easy to throw together and so much more budget-friendly than going through a custom party planner. Sharing some photos and details in this post for inspo if you’ve got a Toy Story themed party in the works too!
