Another successful birthday party in the books! Peanuts, featuring a lot of Charlie Brown inspired decorations, was the theme.
I’ll admit I may have convinced Mr. B that this would be a cool birthday party theme. I got him in the mood by watching the Peanuts movie, breaking out our Snoopy tent, and letting all three kids dress up for a Peanuts photo shoot.
I had been saving up Peanuts decorations that I found on clearance, and I also realized I could reuse a ton of our Minion decorations. Yellow minions turned into yellow Charlie Brown inspired decor!
I’m going to show you exactly how I reused everything next week, but today, I wanted to share my signature party treat bag.
I give each party guest a paper bag to collect all of their pinata candy. There has to be a pinata, of course. It has become one of our party traditions.
They could also be used to give as party favors. This time, I even used a few as party decorations.
Bags of Parties Past
In case you missed them, here are a few from past parties.
First, from Mr. B’s Star Wars inspired party:
And from the Twins’ NICUversary:
Peanuts Treat Bags
For this party, I went simple. By simple, I mean I only needed two things:
- The Bags
- Black Sharpies

I decided to use different colored bags to represent the different Peanuts characters.
- Yellow = Charlie Brown
- Blue = Lucy
- White = Snoopy
- Red = Linus (or Mr. B thought Snoopy’s dog house)
- Green = Peppermint Patty
I then looked at each character, and used the Sharpie to draw their signature style. Separately, you might not be able to tell each of them, but together, I thought they looked pretty good.
So, I decided to take one of each bag, glue it to a poster board, and use it as another decoration.
They definitely don’t need to be perfect. They are for the kids, and they just add to the theme of the party. You could always stick the characters in front of the bags to help people out!

So, there you have it. A little peek at our Peanuts party. Next week, I’ll be sharing more of our DIY decorations and party pictures.
