What am I working on this week? PARTY PREP! Oh my goodness I can't believe my babies will be turning NINE in only 29 days! Their birthday is the second of October. I have 29 planning days left! Time to get started!
We do birthdays BIG in our house and we've done some super cool parties in the past.
One year we did a LaLaLoopsy party, super fun!
Another year we did a Witch Theme, wicked!
My most favorite has to be the year we did an Alice in Wonderland party. It was so much fun making the scenery for that party!
Oooh! And the candy party! We did a Candy Shop theme and that was a bunch of fun too!
Up until last year, we've had family-only parties. Last year was the first girl friend party! We had a whole lotta little girls at our house and it was SO LOUD! It was fun but man, it was LOUD and a bit crazy.
This year, the girls really want to have a sleepover, so we decided to do a party/slumber party combo, but to limit the craziness! They're going to invite only three girls each. Which is only eight children. I can handle eight girls sleeping over. Right?! Right. Oh dear. I hope so!
Anyway, we're going to do a Doll Slumber Party type of theme. I have been searching Pinterest for ideas and keep seeing Paper Doll theme parties which I really love, too.
There are a bunch of free paper doll printables out there on the 'net. My girls are into their American Girl dolls, so, I thought, the invites could say that each friend can bring their doll, but I won't specify American Girl dolls, because not every girl is into that. So we could have all different dolls at the event ... would a general paper doll theme tie it all together?
I love the idea of decorating paper dolls as a craft like pictured above. If these girls sleepover they're going to need activities to do!
I like this idea of making little purses for the dolls as goodie bag gifts!
I also love the idea of doing a photo shoot with the dolls and give the girls a copy of the photo. Not quite sure how I'd accomplish that though ...
SO many ideas! I need to narrow my focus and figure it all out and get started making stuff!
Of course I'll share with you what I make, so stay tuned!
