Charlie loves Target.

Charlie, who recently celebrated her 3rd birthday, wasn’t totally sold on her mom’s idea for a Trolls theme for the big day.

Her choice? Target. And her mom, Emily, made it happen.

Target Birthday Party

There was a Target cake, red and white decorations, a whole cafe setup (including hot dogs and pizza, of course), and an amazing Dollar Spot recreation.

Here’s what her mom had to say:

In the beginning of the year, I asked her what type of birthday party she wanted and she said Target. At first I was like “no that’s not a party, why don’t we do trolls?” But every time I asked, she always said Target party. I would have others ask her and she said the same response! So I finally decided to roll with it and ideas started popping in my head.

Out front we had the Target balloons to be the store front and then we had the cafe which had foods you would find at the actual cafe, Pizza Hut, popcorn and hot dogs! Then for party favors I made a Dollar Spot where the kids could go “shopping”. My local target was nice enough to give me check out bags and stickers!

She also added: “Of course I didn’t get any good pics of the Dollar Spot before it was ransacked by the kids.”

We totally get it.

Emily even had some custom invites done up by Paper Lane Designs on Etsy. How cute are these??

Charlie LOVED the whole party. She sees the Target symbols I made and just got so excited. As far as going viral, I honestly never imagined that it would get this big! I was proud of myself for what I did with the party but family and friends were all amazed and told me to share with Target. I can’t help but think my pictures of this simple party took off and so many people across the country are commenting! It’s an awesome feeling!

The post that Emily shared with Target now has over 18k shares and 31k comments! The Target love runs strong. We just can’t deny it 😉

  • The debate rages on, but that silence is unmistakable. 😅
  • Be bold. Be brave. Be loud if you want. Be bossy. Be un moldable. But most of all, love, be YOU.
  • I would love to know what is one thing your mother taught you that you hope your kids learn from you and teach others? It could be a skill, a craft, a recipe, or just a life lesson! 💖My mom taught me to be empathetic and to encourage others. She has always been my biggest cheerleader, and I strive to model that for my children and others in my life now. It is my greatest hope that my kids will grow up to be compassionate people who truly support others. 💖 Your turn! #happymothersday2018
