You know you’ve brought your kid up right when they ask for a Target-themed kids birthday party! Event planner Chelsea Flint was able to make a lucky six-year-old’s dream come true recently when she curated a birthday party that would make the retailer proud.

The red-themed party had all the makings of a Target run: a real shopping cart, plenty of splurge-worthy products, a checkout lane and yes mamas––even a Starbucks. No detail was left untouched in this super fun soiree.

Guests felt right at home when it came to getting the party started. They could get to shopping, scanning and buying with pint-sized accessories, and of course, take a break for a coffee when needed! Flint used cupcakes to mimic the iconic frappucino and we gotta say––it looks delicious!


Perhaps the pièce de résistance was the real live shopping cart. Flint tells Romper that she had to visit five different Target locations before a manager graciously let her borrow one and we’re pretty sure the birthday girl was a happy one.

While this definitely isn’t a new idea––Emily Kern’s 3-year-old daughter held her own bullseye bash several years ago––it’s no less a great one. And let’s also not forget the proud mama who loved the retailer so much she made her own Target birth announcement.

Now, who’s ready for a Target run?
