For the last week Lorali and I have been in full fledged party planning mode. My baby girl is turning 7 and hasn't had a party in 3 years. (it was too traumatic on mommy) and now that I won't have any other little girls to throw parties for she is benefiting from all the ideas I've been saving. I gave her a choice of three different parites to choose from, Spa Slumber Party (complete with Movie Under the Starts, Pedicures and Breakfast the next morning), Tea Party Bruch (think Alice in Wonderland frivalous) or an American Girl Themed Party (including all thing vintage!). Well, if you've met my princess you'd know she'd come up with her own idea... which really is the combination of all three ideas!
First I had her help design the invites.... She was very specific on what exact colors to use and what fonts she wanted and where she wanted things placed (It was a proud moment for me.) I took a picture of her and Lanie and turned that into a custom American Girl silhouette.... LOVE how it turned out! Then she tied them up w/ ribbon, added a tiny custom label and ran out the door to deliver them before I could even blink!
It's been fun to have her plan every part of it from the list of food I offered her to how she wanted to serve it, what to order for it and what she want's to do w her friends. I love seeing her personality come out in everything she touches. One thing is for sure... this is a party just for her and she is going to love it!
Enjoy your Thursday!
