I’m finally sharing with you Stella’s 7th birthday party that we celebrated last month. Honestly I was trying hard not to throw a birthday party for her this year. Being gone all the month of August, then jumping right into school and her birthday being only two weeks away–I just didn’t have the time or energy. I offered instead a day in the City at the American Girl Doll store, but she tearfully told me she really, really, REALLY wanted a birthday party. Yup, I think I’ve turned my children into birthday party monsters.
We decided to do a spa theme with a small group of girls–pedicures, manicures, facials. Sounds easy and I had most of the supplies on hand. After we decided on the theme, a few days later One Charming Party posted their Spa-aah Party ideas and printables so it was perfect! And it saved me a ton of time, not having to do much of anything except printing and gathering supplies. The girls loved it!
I hired two high school girls to come over and do the manicures and pedicures. And my girlfriend had one of those pedicure at-home spa baths and let me borrow it. The party guests rotated between pedicures, manicures and do-it-yourself facials. I turned on pandora’s top hits radio station, and those who had to wait were singing and dancing. They were all so cute and energetic!
