I think most mom’s can admit that they REALLY look forward to the first time they either give or get a mani/pedi with their daughter. I know I did! All little girls love to get pampered and I love that little Emma chose this for her 5th birthday. Michelle of Sweet Threads Clothing Co (and one of our amazing contributors!) styled this fabulous party with a list of talented vendors in tow.
Here is what she had to say:
When I asked my daughter Emma what kind of party she wanted for her 5th birthday she immediately said she wanted a spa party! Instead of spending oodles of money at one of the kids places I decided to have it at home. The party was in the late afternoon so we did a sweets table with printables designed by Party On! Designs. We served store bough cupcakes, decorated spa mask cookies from Stephanie J’s, and pink macaroons from Sparkles Macaroon.
We set up a mini nail bar and beauty bar and while girls were getting their nails done we had the others create their own flipflops. I bought the flip flops from Old Navy and cut scrap fabric up in colors that matched the party. They loved it and it was a special treat to wear after they got their pedicure.
I hired my next door neighbor (a high school student) and her friend to give the girls their beauty treatments while the moms relaxed and chatted.
As the girls left they each received a bag for their flip flops and were each given a favor box designed by Pamela Smerker Designs with hot pink polish and cotton balls so they can do their nails at home, a headband in either pink or aqua from Jameson Monroe and a cupcake mini bath bomb from F B Essentials.
The party was a hit and the girls all had an amazing time! The birthday girls shirt was designed by me, her mommy of Sweet Threads Clothing Co with a matching necklace from The Sweet Crush and headband from Jameson Monroe.
