Today I'd like to share some of the fancy activities from Laci's Fancy Nancy birthday party this past weekend. When all the girls had finally arrived, they got to visit the "Ooh-La-La Boutique," which I had set up on our piano. They picked out their own necklaces, a tiara and the sunglasses they liked. The girls looked marvelous.
I made a sign for the boutique, as well as our fancy treats which I will show you tomorrow. If you are familiar with the Fancy Nancy books, you know that she explains what some of her fancy words mean, so I modeled the signs after that.
For example, Boutique(That's a fancy word for store).
For one of our activities, I had the brilliant idea to make bracelets. Well, that did not go so good. The girls were really into it, but it just wasn't happening. I guess I don't know how to pick out good jewelry making supplies. The stretchy cord I picked out was not easy to work with. We would get a bracelet all beaded and try to tie the end and all the beads would fall off. Uggh! I should have probably thought this whole bracelet thing through a little more. It was taking so long that I finally said we are going to bag up each girl's supplies and they could try to finish them at home. Not trying that one again for awhile. The good thing is they didn't seem to mind at all.
After our delicious treats, Laci opened her gifts. She was so excited. She has such cute little friends that showered her with so many fun things.With presents opened, the girls headed out to take turns riding on her Barbie Jeep. That is before the battery died. Oh well. I think all of them had fun. Thanks to all the girls for making Laci's 6th b'day fancy and special.
Come back tomorrow to see our simple, yet fancy treats.
