Cut sepals in green construction paper and glue them at the back of the strawberry-shaped invite. Decorate the clear side of the strawberry with dark pink glitter glue and with a marker, write down the details of the party.
Get some clear cellophane or plastic bag and fill them up with shredded green paper and candies wrapped in shades of pink. Put the strawberry-shaped invitation inside the bag, tie it with pink and checkered ribbons and attach chartreuse name tags with the guest’s name written in strawberry-scented glitter pens.

Strawberry Shortcake Decorations
An easy yet fitting way to decorate the party venue is through putting up ready-made decors sourced from any stores that sell Strawberry Shortcake party supplies. For easy DIY decors buy some pink and two white balloons to make flower balloons to hang from the ceiling. Get five pink balloons and one white. Make sure the pink balloons are about 6″ in diameter. Blow up the white balloons around 4″ in diameter. Tie 2 pink balloons together then add the remaining ones arranged like petals. Tie one white balloon on each side of the “pink” petals as the center. Check for looseness before attaching a string or ribbon for hanging. Make these a day before the party for the balloons to retain their sheen.
Get the necessary themed plates, cups, napkins for the party. Get some more pink and fuchsia balloons and fill them up with helium. Tape some green paper leaves on top of the balloon and draw black seeds on the balloon to resemble a strawberry. Make a pinata shaped like a strawberry and fill it up with tons of candies.
Strawberry Shortcake Party Food
Of course you have to have a Strawberry Shortcake Cake and cupcakes. You can just order from the local bakeshop for the main cake and bake the cupcakes yourself. Top each cupcake with frostings in different shades of pink and top them with green sprinkles.
Serve strawberry jam and cream cheese mini sandwiches. Cut fruits in strawberry shapes and serve with cream dips. Serve vanilla ice cream topped with strawberry jam. Pop pink popcorns! Serve pink and creamy potato salad (add beets for the pink) and pink lemonade. Serve chocolate covered strawberries. Yummy!
Strawberry Shortcake Fun Activities
Think of a fun-filled party. Hire a face painter to paint on strawberries on the little guests’ faces. Hide strawberry party favors and hide them within the party venue. Instruct your little guests to look for them.
Blow up some red and pink balloons and line them up in a row. If you have crawlers for guests, have them race to get to the balloons. Moms and dads can help by positioning themselves near the finish line while they call for their kid. Half the fun is to see the antics of the parents in calling their babies to reach the finish line. Fun!
