Hi Birthday Express readers!
My name is Brittany Schwaigert from GreyGrey Designs, and I am one of the featured stylists for the Birthday Express ideas blog. I’ll be blogging twice a month and giving you fresh ideas on how to take your Birthday Express parties to the next level and hopefully inspiring you to DIY your next party. I’m so excited to continue working with Birthday Express this year on some really fun, new party themes and new spins on classic ones!

Peppa Pig is such a cute little show! I love when my little guy watches it because the voices of the characters are just so sweet. I love British accents and especially little British accents!
Today I am going to show you how to create your own Peppa Pig party at home! I promise that it’s easy and you can do it using simple products that you can pick up at any craft store.
I based my party on these adorable new Peppa Pig party supplies from Birthday Express. I love the butter yellow, baby pink, and sky blue color scheme!
And Peppa is eating a delicious chocolate cake in the graphics, so I knew I had to incorporate a chocolate cake into my party!
I started my decorations by making my own backdrop using bulletin board paper. For the first layer I used cloud patterned paper, and I cut a green piece to lay over the top as the “hill” where Peppa’s house is located. Peppa’s house, which is a very simple yellow house with blue windows, was made using a piece of yellow posterboard, which I cut into a simple house shape. I added a brown piece for the roof, a darker yellow piece for the front door, and then simply drew in the windows with a blue chalk marker. The final touch was the antenna, which I drew in with a black marker.
I added a big sun on the other side which was made from craft foam and some yellow tissue festooning. You can’t mess it up! This is such an easy project! I also added some simple pink and yellow tissue honeycombs on the front of the table.
On top of the table, I added the Peppa Pig tablecover over a regular linen tablecloth. This brings in the theme while also adding some much needed color and pop to the table.
For our menu, I added a few Peppa themed items, such as Peppa sugar cookies …
… Peppa chocolate lollipops …
… and of course, “Muddy Puddles,” or in this case, little glass mugs of chocolate milk!
I love these little mugs so much because they have a screw-on lid so that you can prepare them before the party and just keep them in your fridge.
I also added curly fries, or “pig tails” …
… some store-bought cupcakes that I dressed up with some characters that I printed from an online download …
… and of course the chocolate cake!
I made this chocolate cake to look like the one in the graphics, complete with sprinkles. I added some pink gumballs around the base and then added a cute sign that I made by printing out Peppa’s logo from my computer and adding some paper straws with hot glue to the back.
As a fun take-home, Birthday Express makes these cute pink gingham cupcake favor boxes.
They are perfect for your guest to pack up a cupcake and take it home for a midnight snack!
Anything pink is super cute for any pink piggy party!
Have fun playing in your own muddy puddles at your Peppa Pig party!
