There are a lot of pictures, so let's get started!
When the girls walked into the party, they saw the decor that we set up in the living room:
They saw it all and their eyes went wide - I loved it. We let them look, and then brought them into the kitchen for lunch: little sandwiches, little spa veggie bites, and, for the very picky eaters (ahem, my daughter) pizza. All against a little DIY chalk art...
After lunch, but before facials, we had an crafty-yummy treat for the girls. My friend Marlyn (montreal confections) made lady face cookies that the girls could decorate! They had a great time "applying" edible make-up to their cookies.
After that, we pampered the girls with facials and manicures. The handmade eyemasks were favors, but doubled as headbands to keep the girls' faces hair-free...
When the masks started tingling, a few of them got nervous and rushed to wash it off. Miss-cool-as-a-cucumber in the picture above was one of them. ha.
All of the paperie was created using the spa party collection from CSS (click, click, and click.)
Apparently, the manicures brought out the ganster in the girls...
Once the nails were dry, we showed off the desserts:
Marlyn made this amazing ruffle cake! She swears it isn't hard to create in her video tutorial.
Bath bubbles are my fave: they were cake balls, dipped in white candy melt and heavily sprinkled. Also, thank you Target for that bathtub find.
The parfaits were the sleeper hit of the party. I found the idea on the wedding chicks blog, and thought they would be for the adults, but the kids loved them too!
After presents, and giggling about how they felt like "a million bucks" (seriously, I can't make this stuff up!) we presented them with their own take-home pedicure kits.
I hope you've enjoyed our party! Thanks for coming to the Spa-aaaah!
