We celebrated my daughter’s 5th birthday with a PJ Masks birthday party. If you have a little one who is a fan of the show on Disney Junior, then you know PJ Masks birthday stuff is
hard impossible to come by, which means the entire party was handmade. With a lot of love and patience, I created PJ Masks birthday party ideas that my little Owlette adored.
PJ Masks Birthday Party Ideas
I stuck with the hero’s colors – green, blue and red throughout the party with black to represent night time. And the focal point of the party was the green, blue and red backdrop with the hand-cut cityscape silhouette and PJ Masks HQ. (I am so proud of my PJ Masks HQ, it turned out exactly how I wanted it, and I promise to share a PJ Masks HQ tutorial soon.)
PJ Masks Party Favors
Upon arrival, we invited guests to become a hero by donning a mask, arm band and tattoo. Oh the cuteness! Originally, I planned to make masks myself for all of the guests, but since I am 6 months pregnant I decided to purchase masks from Etsy. After a lot of searching, I ordered these masks. (Note, I only wanted heroes and exactly 8 masks for the invited guests so I asked the seller for a custom order. She did so in minutes – so feel free to ask for what you need.)
Since I purchased the masks, I saved money by making my own arm bands out of foam. Tutorial coming soon.
The tattoos are also homemade because my daughter is obsessed with temporary tattoos, so she insisted on PJ Masks. The good news is they are SUPER easy to make. Tutorial and printable coming soon.
PJ Masks Free Printable Signs
To decorate the party favor table, I created a couple of PJ Masks signs. I printed these at home on photo paper and slipped them into the frames for an easy PJ Masks party decoration. The third frame is a picture of my little Owlette in her costume I made for her (see below).

Normally I make all of my party printables available as free downloads, but I am soooo sad to say that somehow I deleted an entire folder full of files and printables from my computer. It took me a while to realize the mistake, so they are gone forever. Sorry I don’t have the table tents or my Bingo game available to share.
PJ Masks Owlette Costume
The birthday girl decided she wanted to dress up like Owlette for her party. When I first started planning the PJ Masks party you couldn’t even buy a Owlette Halloween costume. So, I set out to make my own. Plus, I really didn’t want a costume. I wanted a party outfit — that just happened to look like Owlette. This way she can wear her outfit to school — minus the wings and mask, of course.
For my daughter’s Owlette outfit I purchased pieces from Etsy, and then I added Owlette’s crest to the dress with heat transfer vinyl:
- Red tank dress (Note, I found these ran a bit small the dress would be too short without leggings)
- Red leggings (Dress and leggings were hand dyed so they matched perfectly)
- Owlette wings
- PJ Masks Arm Band (Birthday girl got a fancy one)
- PJ Masks Necklace
PJ Masks Party Food
The PJ Masks party was themed all the way down to the food. For the party, we had the following party foods.
- Ninjalino Nuggets
- Hero Fruit (red = strawberries, blue = blueberries, green = grapes)
- Romeo’s Experiment (green apple Jello)
- Luna Girl’s Moon rocks (candy covered marshmallow pops)
- Sticky Splat (candy covered popcorn in red, blue and green)
- Super Hero Punch
For the cake, my birthday girl wanted a cookie cake with PJ Masks toys on it. Luckily, stores started selling PJ Masks toys just before her birthday, so I was able to fulfill her cake wish. And the toys doubled as a birthday present given to her right before the party. (I used the Owlette here, Gekko here and Catboy here – this set of all the characters would also be cute.)
For the table, I used a combination of green, blue and red plates, napkins, cutlery, straws and cups. (It looked great against the black!) And to add an extra touch of PJ Masks I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the PJ Masks crests out of vinyl and added them to the cups. It was actually very easy to do and made a big impact on the table.
I used removable vinyl for the wall logos, and after the party I transfered the vinyl to my daughters room. She loves having her PJ Masks decoration in her room, and when she tires of it it I will just peel it off and toss it.
