Birthday Celebration - Part I

I am a big birthday person! When it comes to my kids parties I like to pick a theme and then I go all out. Usually I have the parties at our house, but this year I decided to be different. We went with the theme of Fancy Nancy, a book character that is very near and dear to Zoe's heart. Mostly because they have so much in common. If you have a little girl and don't know about Fancy Nancy, you must check her out!!

For the party, we decided to invite 4 of Zoe's little girlfriends for an afternoon of girl fun. I picked up all the girls from their daycares and then we hit Diggity Doo's, a new little girl spa that just opened. It is the cutest spa evah! It is done is bright pinks and greens, has little cars you sit in, and pink manicure/pedicure stations. All the girls had beautiful princess dresses that we changed into first (Thanks Karlin for coming to my rescue!) and then they were pampered with manicures, makeup, and gorgeous hair styles.

Once they were all dolled up, we headed to Victoria's where we had afternoon tea! They had set up a beautiful table for us and the girls couldn't get over how fancy it was. We indulged in fruit kabobs, chocolate covered strawberries, cookies, tea cakes, scones, and tea sandwiches of cheese, ham/cheese, and peanut butter and jelly. The girls enjoyed Rose tea with their treats. (Thanks Mr. Steve for setting it all up for us!!) Everything was scrumptious.

After tea, we headed down to the beach for some pictures.

I have to say that this was by far my favorite birthday party yet. It was nice not having to clean the house, prepare the food, decorate, then clean up the mess. I also liked just having a few little girls because it was more intimate and I felt the girls were able to enjoy themselves more. You could tell by the smiles that lit up their faces that they had the times of their lives. I gotta admit that mommy enjoyed herself too!!

Happy Birthday, my princess!!
