After last year's mega-party, I swore that my girl would not get another party until she turned 12. Possibly 16. Yes, it was that much work. And yet I somehow allowed myself to be roped into hosting a few of her friends for a Spa Party.
I know, I am a sucker.
We invited 4 friends, and 2 came, so it was actually very manageable.
We made invitations in the shape of a sleep mask, and filled in the details with glittery pen.
As party favors, we put together a personalized "spa kit" with a dollar store container, flip flops, a wash cloth, face scrubber, nailpolish, combs, head bands, hair elastics, and a manicure kit. I bought everything at the Dollar Tree, so even though it seems like a lot of "stuff" it was totally reasonable.
I personalized each container with the girls' names - I love how they turned out!
We decorated the buffet in party style with a banner, tissue paper flowers,
personalized art, and yummy treats.
It was an afternoon party, so we had root beer and candy popcorn for treats, and of course cupcakes & ice cream.
Flower cupcake papers were the perfect girly touch!
With a spa party theme we decorated flip flops with ribbon & tulle, played musical manicure, enjoyed an all-natural face mask, and then painted toenails.
And then enjoyed those delicious cupcakes! This year's secret: Nutella frosting. I was dying.
Happy Birthday, baby girl! 9 going on 19!
