My Fancy Girl

B turned 6 last week. And being the fancy girl she is, she wanted a Fancy Nancy party. It was a huge success. All the girls were invited to wear their "most posh ensemble" to the "soiree". As each "mademoiselle" arrived, they were provided a boa and 'pearl' necklace.

We had 3 stations with fancy crafts. We decorated headbands with flowers and bows; clips (for hair or dresses) with flowers and bows, and flipflops with ribbons. I have no pictures of this, because DH, Nana, and I were busy working the stations.

Here are the supplies, mostly purchased at the amazing Halo Heaven, which is basically Oriental Trading for girly girls. LOVE IT!

Following the crafts, the girls had tea sandwiches and punch.

We also did a photo shoot with the girls at their fanciest:

Lastly, we finished with "parfaits". (My daughters don't like cake??!!)

All in all, a smashing success!
(a great picture of B and Fancy Nana, who really got in the spirit!)

That's what works for me! For more works for me ideas, visit We Are That Family!

By the way, got the awesome Fancy Nancy dress B is wearing on Etsy. I LOVE that site. Type in nearly ANYTHING, and you can find it. And if you can't, you can post it and solicit people to make it for you! Have to love that.

Looks like a lot of fun!

My kids don't really like cake either, although my oldest is starting to come around. Which is good so that I don't have to continue to eat entire cakes all by myself!

What a fun party! I would have loved this when I was a child. Makes me wish I had a girl. My boy is thinking he wants a Star Wars party but I'm hoping he'll change to Toy Story 3!
