  1. Your ideas are wonderful. I am planning for my daughter’s birthday in August and she really wanted a Charlie and Lola party. Even though it will be a small party with just family, I still wanted to incorporate some theme stuff. What else did you put in the passports for the kids? I’m not really the artist but I really adore your C&L Photo op idea. But I might give it a try. Oh, and what decorations did you use. I’m at wits-end that all the C&L party supplies are in the UK. 😦 Thank you again for sharing your creativity!

    • Hi – For decorations I created a paper bunting and placed it across the entrance to the dining area where the food was set up. I don’t have a picture of this, but there is a tutorial here:

      We also covered the ceiling in that area with balloons in different shades of pink, and we used the “props” as decorations: the decorate Lola’s dress was placed on a wall in the party area and the photo opps were in the main party area too. Outside of the house, we had a sign that said “Welcome to Jenna Land” and we used graph paper as the background since the show features a lot of graph paper.

      The passports were just small booklets of paper. The first page had a picture of the guest, but the rest of the pages were blank. I had a table set up near the entrance of the party where kids could stamp their passports using a set of Charlie and Lola stamps. My mom found the stamp set at a Barnes & Nobles, but I also saw them on ebay (shipping from/to the states) when I was researching the party.

      Best of luck with your party!!!

  3. I found you by googling Charlie and lol birthday party. Every thing I need in one spot. I GREATLY appreciate the generosity you’ve shown by providing all this info, templates and ideas for free. I’ll be thinking of you as my daughters party unfolds!

  4. Hi there – I am trying to recreate this theme for my daughter’s 5th birthday. I saw a picture of the pink drink. Do you have a template for these labels. Would love it if you have a template with numerous labels on the one sheet.

    Your C&L party is amazing – you are very creative!
