I made her card and party printables from discounted clip art found at the delightful Etsy Store, Prettygrafikdesign, here.
The girlies arrived and my "assistants" (tween daughter and friend) and I got to work painting little finger and toe nails. Each girl got to take home a mini-pedicure set (from our local dollar store).
I wasn't sure the girlies were going to go for the facial, but this edible chocolate mask did the trick. I found the recipe here:
My daughter and I put our newly acquired sewing skills to use in making the flowers out of scrap fabric to decorate headbands.. The little pampered princesses got to decorate cupcakes in a jar, with homemade buttercream frosting...seriously so good!
I just have to tell you how seriously tickled my sweet child was to have a little girl resembling her on all of her party goods. Nothing says love like handmade! We just happened to have the straws (from our local craft store), bags (from Paper Mart) and party hats (made by me) on hand. All I had to do was print, trim and adhere the labels I designed With the clip art.
Here is the party layout I created using Recollections My Favorite Things papers and wood embellishments. The page title is from the clip art too!
How do you add a touch of handmade flair to your parties? If anyone is interested in these graphics for your spa party, leave me a note in the comments and I will post them!
