Last month we did parties for both girls in one day on a Saturday. I rented my church fellowship hall ($50 for the whole day). 9-11 in the morning we had the 3-year-old a "Let's Go!" party. We took and set up every toy she has to ride, sit, bounce, or rock on, and let all the 2- and 3-year-olds go crazy! Her cake was a merry-go-round (easy to make with a bundt cake, colored icing, iced animal crackers, straws, and a round paper roof). We did animal crackers, toddler-friendly card games, and noisemakers in the goody bags. From 2-4 in the afternoon (while little one napped), we had the 7-year-old a "Fancy Girl Fashion Party". I'll admit this one was more work, and more expensive. The girls came in and got an empty "shopping" bag. They went to one table and picked hair accessories and a girl (oldest son's girlfriend) styled their hair. They got to keep their own comb and hair accessories. They went to another table and chose a color of nail polish, and my mother-in-law used lotion, massaged their hands, removed old nail polish, shaped their nails, and painted them and dried them. They kept their bottle of nail polish in their bag. They also got to "shop" for a bracelet and a tube of lip gloss, and put those in their bag. I had a mirror set up and took pictures of them "posing" and we had music going and they danced. Her cake was a "doll" cake, made with a cake baked in a large round bowl, with two round layers underneath, and a Barbie doll (wrapped in plastic wrap underneath) stuck in it. Easy to decorate with colored icing and bright candies. Both parties were huge successes! We've also had a craft-themed party (box of crayons cake). I love to do kids parties!!!
