Pre-Teen - Tween - Teeny Bopper
Whatever you call it - I've got one.
Little K turned 11 recently, so I guess there is no denying it. We are full blown into the Tween Years.
Her actual birthday was at the beginning of March, but trying to coordinate schedules meant that she wasn't able to have a Party with her school friends until last weekend.
This Years Theme:
Rainbow Spa Sleepover
Here is the invitation that I showed off earlier:
Made from Paint Chips (with very little help from me).
The SPA table was set up in the Kitchen Nook, so I used the buffet to layout snacks and sweets.
Rainbow Fruit Kabobs
There had to be some healthy options as well...after all it is a Spa Party. Rainbow Veggie Tray.
I wanted to make paper cones to hold the caramel corn, but couldn't find any paper that was cute enough, so instead I folded Rainbow Polka Dot tissue paper into a clear cup.
Gum Balls (that I thought would be just for decoration....but they ate nearly half the jar), and Rainbow Twizzlers in fun fruit flavors.
Cake Pops decorated with Rainbow Colored sugar and drizzle.
Jars of flowers lined the center of the Spa Table. Paper Zig Zag Streamers and a Rainbow Balloon Swag that was planned to hang over the front door, but it was wet and windy and I was afraid they would PoP so we moved it inside.
There were 7 girls that attended and each one of them was assigned one of the 7 Colors
(notice how the Tween Girl Rainbow includes Pink)
At the Spa Table there was a basket of beauty supplies, and a Robe for each of the girls in their Color. The Rainbow Rugs (from the seasonal bins at Target) were too cute to pass up.
They applied home made beauty treatments including:
Warm Lemon and Mint infused Towels (to open up the pores)
Oatmeal Scrub (to cleanse)
Strawberry Astringent (to tighten the pores)
And Lastly - an Avocado Mask with Cucumber Slices (to hydrate and moisturize).
Don't they look so Relaxed and Happy?
Everything was going great - until we discovered one of the young ladies was allergic to Avocado!
It was a bit scary - but after we removed the avocado and let her rest with a clean cool towel over her face - the hives cleared up and the itching stopped.
Thankfully her mom came right over with some Benadryl and she was able to get back to the Party Fun.
They made some Jewelery. Painted their Nails. Played Truth or Dare. Talked - Whispered - Giggled. Watched a Movie and got a few hours sleep.
I premade some Body Scrubs using essential oils and Sea Salt for each of the guests to take home.
Her Cake was layers of vanilla frosted with plain white buttercream.
Adorned with a sweet Rainbow Flag Topper.
I'm kind of obsessed with these little flags. I though they were so cute - it was the only decoration the cake needed.
Except for the "11" candles.
Did I forget to mention I added a little color to the inside of the cake.
Rainbow - of course!
Happy Birthday to my Sweet Little K.
