We got about 4 inches of rain this past Saturday from the last little bit of Hannah. It was in the forecast all week- for my daughter’s birthday and pool party. Needless to say I had to switch party gears from a simple outside pool & ice cream party to and indoor party with decorations and activities for 11 girls! I have been totally stressed out!
This is what I have been doing for the last 4 days: party prep!!!
75 balloons throughout the house, plus streamers
A fabulous Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday Pennant banner, exclusively designed by my daughter.
So what did they do? They stamped!
Each party attendee received a pink pony webkinz as their party favor in a plain card stock box that was fashioned from a 12×12 piece of card stock with colors selected by my daughter.. They punched a tag and a large wide oval from various pieces of scrap paper(selected by my daughter). they stamped with tagger’s dozen on the tag, adhered them together and made a pony ribbon collar. They wrote their name on the back so we knew who’s pony was who’s and then tied it around the pony’s neck (in a bow) with a large piece of ribbon.(also selected by my daughter)
they then decorated the box with stickers. you can see a little bit of them here in the picture
They played pin the cherries (Tart & Tangy) on the ice cream sundae. See the above picture of the hand drawn ice cream & dish. Sooooo last minute I was coloring as fast as I could !!!!
they made BLING bead bracelets and made ice cream sundaes with lots of toppings! They played Freeze dance and opened presents too! It was a great day!
Recipe: a birthday girl, a party and lots of paper crafting supplies.
Jill,It looks like the party turned out great! I bet the girls enjoyed themselves even more then if it was a pool party. Congratulations on a quick and fantastic turn around! I love the pennant! Can we do a class and make one? Love it!Congrats again!Marie
JillYou are AMAZING!!! Looks like fun!
What a dream party of any little girl. What a great time I'm sure they all had. May have been stressful for a while but you made a life time memory for each child there. I have (4) girls with three of them leading their own lives. How fast they do grow up. Thanks for sharing her special day with us.Kathy Brown
