Happy Birthday Sweet Pea

Last week was my daughter's 9th birthday, and being in the summer I always try to do some kind of party or get together for her to make it special.  This year, being 9, we decided to do totally girly things.  So I went to Pinterest and found some "Girly" ideas to put into use.

We started with making lip glosses for all the girls (see my previous post Vaseline Lip Gloss).  We added a file (Dollar Tree finds) and made up goody bags for each. 

Then I found a cute idea where you put candies (in this case M&Ms) in plastic wine glasses topped off with a cupcake.  In the Pinterest idea they were in champagne flutes, but the cupcakes would have had to be teeny tiny to fit in the top of those cups, so we went with the wine glasses.  And boy did the girls feel special with their "Adult" cups.

Then I stole this nifty idea from a friend who found these lovelies at Michael's Crafts in the gift bag section.  They're small, sturdy bags with a grease proof lining...perfect for young girls while watching movies.

I then made up a fun name banner using scrapbook paper pinwheels (some call these paper medalions...either way they're cute!)  Pss...I'll post a tutorial later of how I did these.

Then I added a special chalk board message and a few tissue paper pom poms, a little yellow here (plates & bowls), a little yellow there (cupcakes & a tablecloth to save my table from nail polish later) and the room was ready for the Girls!!!

Once we'd eaten till we were high on sugar (see cupcakes and M&Ms above for verification), it was time to get our nails prettied up!

Aren't we a funny group.  It doesn't matter how young or old-ish you are...doing nails is always a fun party theme!!! 

So Happy Birthday to my baby girl!  I hope you had a great time Sweet Pea!!!
