At home girls spa party!

I knew this year I needed a simple birthday for Laiken, at home. If you know me, you know I really don't like planning parties. I know it's totally not southern of me, but I just prefer small family affairs. I also know that my big kids are older, and they want to do more fun things!

So Laiken decided she wanted a few girls over and to have a spa party. I sent out a few invites and told the girls to come in pajamas or robes. Two of the three girls spent the night the night before, and they had a lot of fun.

I set up the dining room table as a spa. First, they got hand massages and manicures. I painted all these little fingers.



Actually minus a hand-one little girl had to leave early. They got fun Spring, Easter-y colors!



They got face masks and cucumber eyes! I advise if you do this, use caution. You do not want someone else's child getting a nasty reaction, lol. I was a little worried for a few minutes, ha! They loved this!

We then stopped for cake and if you follow me on Instagram, you've already seen my cake wreck. Not what I ordered at all. But Scotty picked it up, and I wasn't taking it back. It was supposed to be chevron with lipstick and nail polish, etc. For a ten year old. Instead-I got chubby old women bathing in a hot tub. No words.



The edges were even wood grain. Sigh. I forgot to mention before cake, we had lunch. They had Taco Bell delivered to them.

After food, cake, and presents, I did their hair.



They got dressed and wanted to model for me;)




This is a friend of Laiken's.





This is what was in their gift bags. I got all the goodies at Michael's. There were spa socks, eye masks, manicure kits, soap and lotion, bath fizzy, and a cute pen.

I'd say the party was a huge hit and I'm glad we did it!

And I cannot believe that tomorrow my sweet girl is going to be TEN!!!!!!! Ahhhh!!!
