Tis’ the season to rock your Christmas jammies! But, not just any PJs, no we need cute personalized fa la la la llama PJs. And if you are going to have cute new PJs you might as well plan a Llama Pancakes and PJs Christmas party too!
The holiday season is one of my favorite times of the year, especially when it comes to hosting parties. I love putting together simple celebrations that let us soak up every second of this joyful time of year. I decided this year that we needed a cozy afternoon in to snuggle up and watch movies while munching on delicious treats.
Llamas are still super popular and because I’ve been looking for an excuse to throw another llama party after this colorful fiesta, I decided to make my girls custom Llama PJs and host a colorful Pancakes and PJs Christmas party for their friends. I used my Cricut Maker to create lots of personalized decor, everything from PJs and pillows to treat boxes and decor. This post is full of colorful ideas to help you plan a simple holiday celebration that is a whole “llama” fun!
Here is a list of all the materials I used to customize the PJs and party decor:
- Cricut Maker
- Cricut EasyPress 2
- Cricut EasyPress Mat
- Cricut Iron On
- Cricut Vinyl
- Transfer Tape
- Cricut weeding tool
- Cricut Candy Shop Cardstock
- Cricut Kraft Board Natural
- Gold Glitter Cardstock
- Fa La La La Llama Pjs Design File
- Llama Treat Boxes Design File
I found these cute pink pajama bottoms at Old Navy and used my Cricut Maker, Iron-on and EasyPress 2 to personalize the coordinating thermal pajama tops. I made two different designs, which you can find here, but the favorite by far is the Fa La La La Llama!
Once I had the PJs made I decided we needed matching pillows.
Once we had matching pillows I decided we needed coordinating treat boxes. I used the Cricut Maker and Scoring Wheel to make these adorable llama treat boxes. I filled them with cereal since we were hosting a breakfast themed party. To make your own llama treat boxes follow this simple tutorial:
- Open the Llama Treat Box Design File in Cricut Design Space
- Cut out the treat boxes from the Cricut Kraft Board. Use the Scoring Wheel to make the perfect score lines, which will make putting the boxes together a breeze.
- Next, cut out the ears and hair on cardstock.
- Then, cut out the face for the llama in vinyl. Use transfer tape to attach it to the front of the treat box.
- Fill with your favorite treat and enjoy!
Whenever I need cute and simple party decorations I whip out my Cricut Maker. I love that you can make everything from DIY holiday decorations to handmade holiday gifts with this one machine. The Maker can cut everything from fabric to balsa wood so the options for what you can create are virtually limitless. I cut out large holly berry leaves from Cricut Cardstock and used them as the backdrop for our party. I added small balloon “berries” and a colorful pom-pom banner to anchor everything.
I made oversized balloon ornaments for the little Christmas tree and absolutely love how they turned out. I simply cut a scalloped piece of gold glitter paper and added it to the top of each balloon for fun and colorful ornament that fill the tree. I think cute little felt llama ornaments would be darling on this tree as well….hmmm maybe that needs to be my next project!
I told you this party was a whole “llama” fun! I can’t wait for the girls to have their friends over to watch Christmas movies in their PJs and to make lots of holiday memories!
