We had Em's party this weekend. I decided to go low-key this year, and we had a few girls over for an ultra-girly tea party.
I wanted to keep things simple & fun, and being the frugalista that I am, use things we had on hand.
The girls wore their fanciest dress-up dresses. Here they are waiting for the guests to arrive.
For decorations, we used tea pots and cups we already had on hand, Easter M&Ms, and flowers from our yard.
I bought travel sippy cups and cut vinyl decorations with my Silhouette machine as a party favor. I cannot get over how cute cute cute these are!
The girls did mani/pedis, had glitter sprayed in their hair, made flower barrettes, and decorated their cupcakes.
My sis even made a surprise appearance and read them a princess party book from the library.
(Cupcakes were made by my friend Kristy Woodward. However, I don't think she is taking any orders right now; the girl is pregnant with baby number four! I was SO grateful that she made these for Em! They were a huge hit!)
After Christmas, I bought lipgloss stocking stuffers on sale and saved them for the party. They were jumbo sized, with bling & stickers to decorate the tube. So cute!
I found a big roll of Princess coloring pictures at Target and rolled those on top of the table. We put crayons in mini tea pots.
Emerson told me it was the BEST PARTY EVER, which is all I needed to know. :)
There is a new challenge up this week at NoelMignon. I thought that it was fitting to scrap these pics of me as a teeny girl, and Miss Em when she was tiny too. How fast they grow!
