Abby's Fancy Nancy Soiree

Today I'm linking up again with Kelly's Korner: Show Us Your Life- Kid's Birthday Parties. Although we don't have kids yet...(more to come on that soon...)...I do have a little sister who I am second Mom to. This past year I helped plan her a REALLY cute 'FANCY Nancy Pinkalicious 4th Birthday Party.
One of my best friends, Leslie, did the invitations and did such an AMAZING job! If you want a custom designed invitations for your event, Giraffic Arts is the place for you.
Part of her present from me was going to get her hair done before the party so she could look extra 'fancy'. I made these clips out of butterflies from Hobby Lobby and hair clips. The rest of the magic was done by the oh-so-talented Katherine at Katherine Grant Salon and Spa. Abby felt so grown up getting this up-do!
When the girls first arrived we had a read aloud of Abby's favorite book (and the inspiration for the party), Fancy Nancy.Next the guest moved on to a Royal Tea Party. This was the place settings. We glued jewels on the forks and spoons and the guests were served pink lemonade or strawberry milk out of goblets we decorated with jewels and personalized with their name. We served cupcakes, heart shaped sandwiches, pink candy, fruit kabobs, and mini sundaes. The girls loved it! We even borrowed a small table and chairs from our church.
Here is a closer picture of her cake. A family friend did it for us. We bough the feathers and butterflies from Hobby Lobby to 'fancify'. Boys weren't allowed to the party but she made an exception for her favorite cousin, Kaden!

The last part of the party was the best. We turned the garage into a New York runway. We had a table set up with makeup, boas, mirrors, and glitter hairspray and helped the girls get all dolled up. Then we played music from Kids Bop and let them strut the cat walk! It was such a fun party!
I just started planning this year's Cowgirl party which is looking promising too...can't wait to share!
