7th Birthday Party

Well I'm not sure how this is possible, but my daughter is turning 7! and I need to plan a birthday party.

This birthday seems to have snuck on me and I'm in full panic mode trying to get her party together!

I have 4 weeks and a day to plan and execute the perfect party! Last year I started planning in November, so I"m not sure what the hell I'm thinking!

After thinking about it for a few days I have, I mean we have decided to have a spa party! I think that this will be perfect for her and her friends.
I was thinking of pink as one of the colors as I have two girls and pink is always the fallback, but I decided to go out of my comfort zone and pick another color, so I decided, I mean we decided on sunshine yellow and aqua! Let's not kid ourselves here I'm the one that is on the ball for this party! Baby blue was on the mind, but I found so many cool decor items in aqua that I thought that would be a great accent color to the sunshine yellow!

So after spending countless hours on the internet, I'm not sure what we did without it, and researching lot's of other spa party ideas, I think that I'm set! My only issue, which I'm sure that I'll encounter many, is the guest list! I have way too many girls to invite! I'm trying to not think about it and hope once the invites go out I'll have a few no's althought I need to know early enough so that I can order a few key items early enough so that they arrive on time!

My planning stages thus far

Colors - sunshine yellow and aqua blue
Theme- spa
Spa staff - booked!
Invites - layout planned just waiting to add one element in order to send them out
Printables - 3 completed of many (which I feel really good about)
Food- still working it out
Cake- not even on the top of my mind!
Layout - well we are having an unbelieveable warm winter/spring, so I'm hoping to be able to host my first birthday party outside!
The layout will include a food, craft, dessert, drink, and welcome package station

There's 4 weeks and 1 day to go, so wish me luck!
Oh did I mention that my youngest birthday is May 21 and she is expecting something fantstical!


Happy Shopping!
