The Princess turned 8 years old this weekend, and for her party, we decided that it would be fun to do a Spa theme.
I previously posted about the invitations which were fashioned to look like sleeping masks. If you'd like to read more about how I made them click here.
The color scheme was basically a dark tealish-turquoise blue and hot pink...with some lighter pink and black thrown in for good measure.
To make the table look festive, I put out some of the Spa fixin's. On one small serving tray I placed mini bottles of fingernail polish in hot pink and blue. The girls got to pick a bottle which we used to paint their nails...and then which became part of their take-home goodie bags.
I also had a tray full of temporary tattoos which I made using my Silhouette Digital Cutter (did you know they have printable tattoo paper?) I used their software to create an image of a "spa girl" complete with a green-tinted facemask and cucumbers on her eyes. Then I printed them out on the tattoo paper and followed the directions to add the adhesive. The girls loved them!
I laid out the goodie bags which were filled with toe separators in hot pink (of course!), pretty emory boards, fruit flavored lip gloss, and the fingernail polish the girls chose. I couldn't find the exact bags I was looking for, until I ran across this little tutorial at Jones Design Company (complete with the striped paper to print out.) I made the bags, and then just added the cute little "Thanks for Coming" tags which I made using my Silhouette (again....that little thing is quite useful, I'll tell ya!)
Finally, the cupcakes. You know I can't resist cupcakes! I found some darling cupcake papers at Michael's Craft in the colors we were using. The Princess requested chocolate (she is her mother's daughter after all). I just topped them with cream cheese frosting and hot pink or blue sprinkles. I love the way they turned out.
