8 is great!!

February 4, 2013

My little Bean turned 8 this weekend.  We had a small party with her friends at home.

We stuffed a LOT of fun inside!

She’s wanted a cupcake shop before she knew that cupcake shops were a “thing”, so we brought out the cupcake theme again this year.  Heavy on the cupcakes.

 I love finding little water bottle wraps online.  These were a rainbow of polka dots, and I added punched circles of scrapbooking paper with cupcakes on them.  We had juice boxes too, but water was the beverage of choice – I think because the bottles  were so cute!

We went light on the goodie bags because each girl frosted cupcakes to bring home in their own bakery box and fabric aprons with heart shaped pockets.  The baggies included a little plaque with each girl’s initial, some cupcake erasers, and a Cupcakes-to-Go container (meant to store a single cupcake without it getting squashed!) filled with heart shaped marshmallows.

 

The cupcakes kept them busy, homemade buttercream, fondant, gummy things, sprinkles…

and so did the photo-op area.

Everyone had their picture taken by themselves and with the birthday girl, and I got some wonderful group shots.  This was easy-peasy to set up, and they loved the props.  So fun!

I hope my Big Girl thinks her day was sprinkled with fun, 8 is great!
