Tea Party

My daughter recently turned the grand age of four and we wanted to celebrate her birthday in style. My daughter, Paige loves the book Fancy Nancy by Jane O'Connor which is the story of a little girl named Nancy who desires to be everything fancy. She would never leave without her tiara and ice cream can only be eaten with sprinkles of course. Nancy desires to make her family fancy and teachers a course of how to be fancy. It is very difficult being the only fancy person in a family. Nancy learns that the love of her family is all that is needed without any embleshiments. My daughter loves this book because she can identify with little Nancy and her love of dressing up.

Of course to have a party invitations must be given. We made our own invitaitons with stickers of high heels, flowers and purses.The inside of the invitation read: You are cordially invited to attend a posh tea party! Please come celebrar(that's French for celebrate) Paige's fourth birthday on Nov. 25th at 1:00 p.m. Be sure to wear something fancy. Send regrets to Queen Donna

We took the book and created our own fancy world for my daughter and her friends. For decorations we hung large bows left over from a wedding and used tooling in pink and purple for table cloths. Every chair was graced with a boa and a fuzzy purse from the local dollar store. I served punch made with sherbet and sprite out of a punch bowl with punch glasses and we all practiced drinkink with our pinkies out. I also served crimped PB&J sandwiches (I bought the frozen ones), along with a cake with lipstick, high heels and a purse decoration.

You cannot have a party without entertainment .First, I read the story and we played the game pin the purse on the diva and made necklaces along with coloring a picture of Fancy Nancy and we can't forget the tiaras.

This is a party that my daughter will never forget. We had a wonderful time playing and all the moms came dressed to the nines too. How many opprotunites do you get to get fancy?
