24 slices of cucumbers...

On Saturday, we had a Spa Birthday Party for our grand daughter Avery's 9th birthday. This one was 'mimi's spa party"... and I had so much fun! I am the new queen of "Dollar Tree"!!... There were also treats from Aunt Carol in Oregon!

The invitation asked each girl to come to Avery's house in a cuddly bathrobe, and the first thing we did was put cucumber slices on their eyes and let them 'chill' for a minute.Then they had a warm bubbly foot soak and pedicures applied by big sisters & a friend. Some of them moved into the kitchen and had flowers and other 'things' painted on their faces.

They mixed up bath salts and colored them and added scent so they could bottle them and take home later. There were beautiful cup cakes and lots of color everywhere, with candles and "Secret Garden" music in the background.

She is sunshine and smiles most of the time...
She has a kind heart and cares about others...
She prays with real wisom and depth...
She enjoys telling a cute joke...
Her giggles are music to our ears...
Avery is nine and doing just fine!!

We love you tons Avery!!!

Oh my, do you all hire out? I haven't a clue about what to do for a little girl's party. Amelia will turn 8 in August.

So adorable!

What a great idea for a young girl's birthday party! I also love how her older sister joined in and helped out in such a kind way.

Happy Birthday Avery!

You have the best grandma too.

Much love,

I guess Avery loves her grammy tons back. What a special Loving, cosy and luxurious birthday party to give the young Barbie girls.
(I hope they still play with dolls. Children grow up so soon these days.)
A wonderful idea, and so very well done.
The girls must have felt like little princesses.
A memory for lifetime.

Thanks for stopping by, just before I go to bed.
Your payers are most welcome.
Hugs from Felisol
