Guest Post : Lisa From The Party Works
1. Mermaid Party
This is a great theme because of the decorations. You can put seashells and starfish everywhere! Encourage everyone to dress up and have the movie Little Mermaid for a back up plan if everyone needs a little down time. Activities like a slip and slide or crafting with sea-themed inspiration will fit right in.
2. Tea Party
Either go to a thrift store and pick up several large sun hats or request on the invitation that the guests bring their own. Make dainty, crustless sandwiches and secure a tea set complete with saucers (regular mugs will not do). Have a pile of costume jewelry and scarves for the girls to dig through for extra flair and then sit them down to a proper tea. Once they get a little antsy sitting at the table it might be time for a dance party, musical chairs and cookie decorating.
3. Beauty Party
You will want to enlist a few adult helpers for this one, but a spa/beauty party is just about the most adorable thing to behold. Get a couple of jars of face mask and nail polish, slice a few cucumbers, wash every towel in the house, or ask that the girls can bring their own, and direct the girls in their day of beauty. This is an especially great activity if you’re planning on having everyone stay for a slumber party.
Well, there you have a few ideas to get you started. Enjoy each moment of her birthday parties while she’s young, because once she’s in high school, it’ll be harder and harder for you to paint her nails and make seashell necklaces at her party.
