I forgot 2 of the most important things! Invitations and party favors!
The invitations were a printable included in the kit I purchased at One Charming Party. I dipped the edges in Elmer's glue and then in silver glitter to give it a bit of glam. This was another tip from the party kit -- yet again, I didn't have to think to create something cute! Inside the envelopes I also included a couple white feathers for fun.
For her 6 year old birthday she could invite 6 guests. This rule seems to work really well for us. For Conner's 9th birthday he invited 9 friends. For the 12th and 16th birthdays we may have to alter the plan a bit, but for now it works.
Party favors . . . these were so fun to put together! I put everything in pink treat tubs from Bake It Pretty. They were the perfect size.
The contents: toothbrush and sleeping mask from the Dollar Tree, pink whoppers, jewels, a mini flashlight (found for cheap at the Grocery Outlet), a mini zippered purse, and antibacterial hand wash from Bath & Body Works. The "Sweet Dreams" note and poem was part of the OCP party kit.
I think the girls loved all their little goodies.
