Bella likes swimming and mermaids...
Bella likes tea parties...
Mom likes having someone else throw the party and not having to deal with the details and mess....
Perfect! We decide that this year, the perfect place for Bella's party would be at Girly Girlz. You can not possibly get any more girly than this place. It looks like a fairy exploded in there. But Bella is getting older, and I may only have a few years left to enjoy this young, girly stage with her, so I am embracing it all. And I have to admit, the party was just about the cutest thing I had seen!
Each girl got a mermaid tail when she arrived at the party, and the tea room was decorated in all sorts of "under the sea" stuff. Waaaay more creative than I could have come up with!
First stop was the salon, where each girl got her hair done in a special "mermaid braid twist" , complete with fake hair and glitter. * Note to all moms: the glitter sticks to their scalp and stays for a while no matter how much you scrub their hair. I have discovered this the hard way!*
And then after hair, came the nail salon, where each girl got her nails and toes done all pretty =)
Then they played some fun games like "diving for sea pearls", making sea shell bracelets- and of course, a little freeze-dance session =)
I think maybe the funniest moment to watch was when Bella pulled out her new camera that she got from her birthday, and instructed all of her friends to pose for her. It was hilarious!!
One of the things I loved most, is watching and observing Bella with her girlfriends. She is so social and bubbly and giggly.... and just such an adorable little friend. They all had their own little conversations going on, and talked about which first grade teacher they got for this year... it was kinda surreal to see her have her own little life. She's not just my little girl anymore, she has her own little world at school with all her friends, and this is just the start!
Happy Birthday Isabella!
You are so so so so SO loved. =))
