One Grandmoni, three aunties, one boyfriend, two uncles, one girlfriend and one cousin all drove from out of town to celebrate this 4 year old!
A crazy fun weekend!
Isabelle had the ultimate girly-girl 4th birthday party!
The theme was a Fancy Nancy Cupcake Tea Party.
If you haven’t read the book, its a must…and her favorite!
Izzy’s mommy, grandmother and three aunties spent the day draping white tulle and twinkle lights and pink pom-poms (thank you Martha) across the dining room “tea table”.
When guests arrived, they each visited the “Beauty Salon” and got a make-over and manicure. Then they got to “shop” and select from strands of pearls, feathery boas, Pashmina scarves, chunky beaded bracelets and vintage gloves.
Once everyone was fancied-up, the little divas got to decorate their tiaras. Stickers, glitter, flowers and jewels made fun embellishments.
We moved the fun outside for cupcake decorating. An inch of sugar sprinkles on the floor are so much easier to blow off the porch than vacuum out of my kitchen:-)
Grandmoni read Izzy’s two favorite books to her guests before tea time….Fancy Nancy (of course) and Pinkalicious.
The girls were so cute with their real china cups, dainty tea fare and and best manners. There were parfaits, heart-shaped cheese straws, chocolate covered strawberries, dipped pretzel sticks and cupcakes!
Izzy got her first tea set, cupcake pajamas, fun monogrammed clothes, new books, enough make-up to apply to the entire cast of Cats for a year, and her favorite gift of all…..princess panties!
The party was so her! I love how she literally skips through life and awakens each day with such simple joy and anticipation. Like last week when I asked her if she could choose, what would she like to do that week….she replied, “make brownies and clean windows”.
Its the simple pleasures in life:-) So glad she reminds us of them every day!
Happy Birthday to our very fancy Princess Izzy!
I couldn’t possibly fit all the party pictures I wanted to into a post….so here’s a gazillion more for those of you who want pink overload!
