- A Project For: Emma
- Age: 5
- Location: Mt Laurel NJ
When I asked my daughter, Emma what kind of party she wanted for her 5th birthday she immediately said she wanted a spa party! Instead of spending oodles of money at one of the kids salons, I decided to have it at home. Since the party was in the late afternoon we decided to have a sweets table filled with delicious treats for the girls to enjoy after their spa treatments.
Amber of Party On! Designs created a fun and girlie set of party printables in pinks and aquas to give a touch of glamour to the at home event. We served store bought cupcakes, decorated spa mask cookies from Stephanie J's and pink macarons from Sparkles Macaron. The girls loved all the treats after their spa treatments! We set up a mini nail bar and a beauty bar and while some girls were getting beautified, others were creating their own flip flops. I bought pink flip flops from Old Navy and cut scrap fabric up in colors matching the party. They loved creating them and wearing them after they got their pedicures! I hired two high school students that lived in the neighborhood to come over and give the girls their beauty treatments while the moms relaxed and chatted.
As the girls said their goodbyes, they each received a bag for their flip flops and were each given a mini favor box designed by Pamela Smerker Designs with hot pink polish and cotton balls for touch ups at home. Jameson Monroe also sent for each girl a headband as an extra special treat and they all received a mini cupcake bath bomb from FB Essentials. The party was a hit and the girls truly had an amazing time!
The birthday girl's shirt was designed by me, her mommy of Sweet Threads Clothing Co and The Sweet Crush designed a matching necklace for her to wear. Jameson Monroe completed her outfit with a special headband for her super special 5th birthday! It definitley was a party to remember!
I wanted to make it feel like we were actually at the spa. Adding cool tones such as light pinks and aquas, bringing in fresh flowers and setting up mini "stations" really achieved that.

Creating a party at home is easier than most think! Shop around for accessories to add a special touch to your tables. I always buy serving trays, cake stands and dishes in white so I can use for the next party!
