Gravity Falls Birthday Party!
In 2018 my daughter was obsessed with Gravity Falls. Our whole family enjoyed it but she went nuts over it. She especially loved Bill Cipher! I wasn't working during the time of her birthday, so I had more time than money, and used the time to turn our house into the Mystery Shack. Of course I got some great ideas on Pinterest, and this is the closest I've ever come (and probably will ever come) to being a Pinterest-worthy mom.
I printed out a bunch of images, made some signs and props, and used some cute activity and food/drink ideas I'd found online. PSA: The little elaborate paper models you'll see on the table were bought on Etsy and were waaaaay more trouble than they were worth. I actually recruited 2 very patient friends to help me put them together! It took us many hours. Just don't do it! Thankfully my daughter decided to keep those and has them on one of her bookshelves!
My husband dressed up as Grunkle Stan and I dressed up (reluctantly) as Lazy Susan. The kids got into it too and a few of her friends dressed up as other Gravity Falls characters. I decided to post the images to give ideas to other parents whose kids might want to do a Gravity Falls birthday party too!
You can download the printable items I found/made so you don't have to scour the internet or recreate them; see ZIP file below.
