Hi Friends! Let’s jump in muddy puddles! It’s a Peppa Pig party! I’m so excited to share a recent party project that I created in partnership with Peppa Pig. My boys were SO thrilled about this party. Peppa Pig has been a favorite in our house for quite a while. Easton, my little three-year-old, was about to burst from excitement! It was so nice to take a little break from all the holiday hustle bustle of this season and spend a fun afternoon with my favorite guys. Of course, any party is better with cake…and now through December 31, 2018 Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt is making Peppa Pig fro-yo cakes for birthdays, special occasions, or to make any day more “oinktastic” and fun! Any day is a party with these delicious cakes!
If you have a little one in your life that loves Peppa Pig this is the party for you. In this post I’ll be sharing a bunch of fun, simple Peppa Pig party ideas and inspiration—foods, easy decor DIYs, and free printables—so you can re-create this celebration at home.
Peppa Pig Party: The Cake
As I mentioned above, from now until December 31, 2018 Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt is making Peppa Pig fro-yo cakes. These cakes are so good! I must admit, I was unfamiliar with Menchie’s cakes until I started working on this project and WOW was I impressed. My boys and I were blown away with how delicious it is! The cakes are made with a variety of flavors of fro-yo and different fillings. You can customize exactly what you’d like and even add a photo in the design! Our cake was Country Vanilla and Chocolate fro-yo with a layer of crushed Oreos and a layer of chocolate cake…SO yummy! You can order the cakes online or in-store and…let me tell you…my oldest son has already requested one for our next party!
Peppa Pig Party: The Theme
When I was first envisioning this party I knew I wanted it to be bright and sunny and full of fun, little whimsical details from the show. I knew I wanted to incorporate a few quick DIYs but I wanted to keep them simple and do-able. I started by designing the backdrop poster printable, and then got to work on all of the other party specifics. You can download a printable of this backdrop in our printable library!
This Peppa Pig Air Walker Balloon is awesome. It’s huge, standing 48 inches tall. The quality is wonderful! I highly recommend it. I also thought the sun balloon worked so well with the rainbow balloon garland. It was a great addition too. For the rainbow balloon garland itself, I just blew up a bunch of balloons and tied them all together using a thin string.
Peppa Pig Party: The Food
Along with our Peppa Pig fro-yo cake from Menchie’s, the other foods at the party were an assortment of veggies from Grandpa Pig’s Vegetable Garden, Muddy Puddle Chocolate Milk, Rainbow and Cloud Cupcakes, Green Hill Rice Krispies Treats, Muddy Pudding Puddles, and Fruit Flowers.
Since Peppa and her family live in a little yellow house on the top of a green hill, I thought it would be fun to create a food that represented this. To make the Green Hill Rice Krispies Treats simply make Rice Krispies treats as you normally would by combining melted marshmallows and Rice Krispies. Then, mound the treats into small hills. If they are sticky enough, you can roll them directly in green sprinkles. If not, cover them with a very thin layer of white chocolate and then roll them in the green sprinkles. Attach the little yellow house free printable to a toothpick and push it in the top of each hill…that’s it! I love how the green sprinkles look like grass. How fun!
Two big thumbs up for the Menchie’s fro-yo cake!
Everyone knows that Peppa’s favorite thing to do is jump in muddy puddles. I knew I wanted to incorporate her favorite pastime into one of the foods at the party. These Muddy Pudding Puddles were a definite highlight! I made the splashing puddle “bowl” portion out of chocolate melts. You can find the full step-by-step instructions below.
To create the splashing muddy puddle “bowls” for our Muddy Pudding Puddles follow these 6 steps.
Step 1: You will need small balloons, non-stick cooking spray, chocolate melts, and parchment paper. I found it was easy to line a cookie sheet with the parchment so I could move the puddles around if needed.
Step 2: Start by blowing a small amount of air into each balloon. They do not need to be very big to create a nice sized “bowl.” Then, wash each balloon with soap and water and dry fully.
Step 3: Next, melt the chocolate melts in a microwave-safe bowl. Spoon a small amount of melted chocolate onto the parchment paper. This will be the “base” where you will place the dipped balloon.
Step 4: Then, spray each balloon with a small amount of non-stick cooking spray.
Step 5: Now it’s time to dip each balloon in the melted chocolate. Since I was not trying to make perfectly uniform bowls, but instead give the effect of splashing muddy puddles, I tried to make each one look a little different…a bit lop-sided, higher and lower in different areas. I repeated this step and dipped each balloon twice. This made each bowl much more durable.
Step 6: Once the chocolate has dried and fully hardened, you can pop and remove the balloons. Start by making a very tiny hole in the top of the balloon and allow only a small amount of air to be released. Then a bit more, etc. This will help keep them from cracking. Then just add pudding to each “bowl” right before you are ready to serve them. These were a big hit! Such a treat—my kids loved them!
Peppa Pig Party: Quick and Easy Decor Ideas
Party decor doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive to make a big impact and really enhance your party theme. In this section, I’m sharing a few quick and simple ideas. First, to transform a plain red paper plate into a “Peppa Plate” just tape or glue her face, arms, legs, and tail onto the plate. Then, arrange your cutlery to be over her hands to give the allusion that she is holding it. So easy and really fun!
Here is another easy one…just tape or glue the snout printable (located at the bottom of this post) to the bottom of a pink paper cup to create a DIY pig nose cup in minutes!
To create the white picket fence for the table, I just cut rectangles out of 4 pieces of white foam board. Then, I taped each of the 4 boards together. I got the foam board from the dollar store. So the whole fence only cost $4! Then I just added the flower graphics to break up some of the space (printables included at the bottom of the post).
Peppa Pig Party: The Favors
Send all your little party guests home with a cute Peppa Pig house favor box. These little houses are so much fun! Again, the printable is included in the printable library. I’m including assembly instructions too. Tip: To make the favor box a bit more durable, and to be able to hold more treats, print on a thicker cardstock paper!
