A Party Fit For a (Drama) Queen!

For the BIG F-I-V-E Lucy wanted a party fit for a (drama) queen.  She had been to a party in December (Gabi's Fashion Fete) and wanted to do the same kind of party, but with the amount of girls that she wanted to include it was going to be more cost effective crazy to have it at home.  So, after scouring Pinterest and everything Barbie, we came up with a plan for the BIG party. 

Pinterest provided lots of ideas for cute cookies, cake pops and vases, and cakes.  That website is trouble fantastic!

 My neighbor makes bows, and this being a fashion party...and wanting to help her business, I decided to make the goody bags a bunch of pink jelly beans with a bow (and business card) attached.  They turned out really cute.
 During Christmas one of my favorite cookies are the peanut butter cookies with the Hershey kiss in the middle, so this was a cute variation on that cookie.  In hindsight, we probably should have done sugar cookies with the "hugs" in the middle, but we made strawberry cake cookies instead.  They still tasted yummy enough to eat at least five a few.
One of the fun ideas we came up with was to get a red carpet (thanks to Kirsten Tremble and her parents) so that the girls could do a photo shoot and pose.  Lucy was the model as Matt Molinari set up the photography equipment.  He had to get it just right, because we were dealing with models here...

The girls would have their choice of sunglasses (Barbie brand of course), feather boas, jeweled rings, necklaces, and bracelets.  All of the most important accessories!  After the accessories are chosen, they got their hair done, their nails painted, a little make-up applied, and then their photo taken.  In other words...they were treated like queens!

 The girls (Haley and Bailey) had a good time choosing their extras and getting all dolled up.
 Sophia and Lucy look fancy!
 The birthday girl and her modeling shot.  The photos turned out really awesome!
 We were able to mostly get all the girls to look at the camera and sit at the same time.  (Can you see all the feathers on the ground?!)  We had quite the turnout at the party.  We probably could've made it the Project Runway:  Mini Version for a theme.
 Tyler and Bobby "crashed" the party.  They dressed up like rock stars, turned on a song, and then did break dancing in the middle of the living room.  The girls crowded around the boys and were cheering.  It was epic!  Everyone, but Lucy, thought it was quite fantastic.

Five years ago on this day my life was chaged forever.  There is a bond between a mother and a son and I was already lucky enough to have that with Tyler, but I never knew how special it would be to have a little girl.  She might make me scream and want to cry on a daily basis.  She might have attitude bigger than any rock star or diva.  But she also has the biggest heart, the brightest eyes, a smile that will light up a room, and a kiss so sweet you'll never need candy again.  She is my little girl and my heart and soul.  So, happy birthday Magoo.  On this day you deserve to be the Birthday Queen!
