When Jakks and I start discussing a Cabbage Patch birthday party I was excited but nervous. I had never had a Cabbage Patch and didn’t really know the story behind them. What I did know was that I wanted one when I was little and I wanted one now. I not only wanted one though, I wanted to throw a party for one, for many actually. So, I did.
When it came to entertainment I had to start with some research about the history of Cabbage Patch kids. I needed to know what bunny bees were and what the goldmine was. So, I did what any good party planner would do and researched my topic. I planned. I took notes and when the day came, I partied.
The new Pop and Style Cabbage Patch was inspired by being able to style your CPK’s (Cabbage Patch kid’s) hair. Originally, CPK’s were made out of yarn but thanks to the new cabbage patch dolls they have hair pieces that snap and pop off. It didn’t take me long to realize that a hair piece for our soon to be parents were in order. The concept was the mom would do her daughters hair while the daughter does her CPK’s hair. In the craziness of the party I am not sure who actually accomplished that but I know a lot of moms helped make the hair clips. I am sure overall it was a bonding hair time!
Fairytale Entertainment brought in a ton of baby equipment and leave it to their fine entertaining skills Fairytale Entertainment had brought a huge part of the party as the kids practiced putting on diapers, putting the babies in Pack and Plays, and they even brought a pretend bathtub and car seat.
I had found a very old book (on Amazon.com) of The shy Cabbage Patch and read them the story. I loved it. The kids loved it. Usually. When the kids are happy…..so are the parents. I hope this was the case!
The adoption process took sometime as each child pledged to be a good parent. Even the sales manager of the Golden Inn made the adoption official by signing as a witness.
Afterwards the Golden Inn chef helped them make cupcakes with cabbage patch faces. This not only served as dessert but also as an activity.
At the end we took snap shots of them walking the “green” carpet as super star mommies.
It was a day I will remember for a long long time!
