Where It All Began...

My cousin Crystal and me at my 7th birthday...Yes, of course that's me with the CROWN!

Mia and her gal pals at her 4th birthday...

I guess it really is no wonder I eventually found my way into the party biz (and that my daughter's 4th birthday party theme was very similar to my 7th birthday party theme...and no, I'm not going to answer any questions about exactly how long ago that was!)

I still remember this dress-up/make-up party as one of my two most favorite birthday parties (the other being my surprise 13th birthday.) What little girl doesn't want to play dress-up with her friends? Plus, I have some FABULOUS blackmail pictures of some of my childhood girlfriends that I still keep in touch with!

An Oooh La La Soiree...

Click on the collage to make any of the pics bigger...

In keeping with my "better late than never" theme, here's a peek at Mia's "4 & Fancy" Dress-Up Birthday...


As guests arrived, they were sent to the "Wardrobe Area" (that's fancy for closet) where they could pick out their favorite princess dress (and add necessary accessories like hats, scarves, jewelry and, of course, shoes) and then got to work decorating tiaras with princess stickers and jewels. The girls left with some swag (that's fancy for party favors) including a Fancy Nancy book, a yummy tiara cookie, a sassy glittered headband, and a hot pink frame to hold the fancy picture of them taken during the party. Ooh La La!

A Shower Fit For a Princess...

Click on the collage to make any of the pics bigger...

And we're back in business! Picasa and I have a bit of a love-hate relationship. I love it right now, so let's just leave it at that. And no more trying to add new pics to an old collage.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right???

Did you know that Time For a Party also does showers...of both the wedding and baby variety? I am still working on getting the specifics up on the What's In the Box section, but I wanted to do a quick post to give you the first peek! I did this Princess Baby Shower back in May, but it was before I became the Picasa/Blogger superstar I am now (note the sarcasm here), so the pics just sat in picture limbo on my computer, waiting patiently for someone to upload them to the blog. But better late than never, right? The guests had a great time decorating onesies, bibs and hats with ribbon, appliqu├ęs, paint, fabric...the sky was the limit and these creative women did not disappoint! To top things off, the weather was perfect for a backyard brunch afterwards. As you read this today, the guest of honor and her husband have already welcomed the arrival of their adorable baby girl...who has quite the fancy wardrobe already!
