Calling all girly girls: Nothing says fun like a huge diamond ring! The oversize "rock" invite lets guests know this party is all about the bling-bling. A pretty pink purse cake looks like every fashionista's favorite accessory. The goodie bag? Plastic dress-up shoes filled with trendy trinkets -- candy necklaces, ring pops, and sparkly stickers.
The Invite: Using our photo as a guide, draw a diamond-ring shape on colored cardstock and cut out. To make the diamond stand out, outline and fill in the shape with glue; add glitter. Shake off excess and let dry. Print or write out party details onto a small piece of cardstock, and cut into tag shape. Punch hole through tag and portion of ring; secure with paper fastener.
The Goodie Bag: Plastic dress-up shoes filled with trendy trinkets -- candy necklaces, ring pops, and sparkly stickers will make this a bedazzling party.
The Activity: Before leaving, the girls can decorate a precut, craft-foam picture frame for their runway photo. Set out lots of glitter, sequins, and beads.
The Cake: Our stylish dessert is adorned with candy flowers and a licorice handle.
Party Plan: 1hr. 30 min.
Set up a candy-jewelry-making station. Have bowls of unwrapped, pierced candy -- Life Savers, Starbursts, gumdrops -- kids can string onto shoelace licorice or a stretchy cord. Tie a knot at ends to secure.
Host a fashion show. (Have feather boas, sunglasses, and funky hats on hand.) Set the mood with upbeat music as the girls strut their stuff, showing off their new baubles. At the end of the "runway," take an instant photo of each child.
Modeling is hard work! Give the gals some time to gab, relax, and eat a slice of that delicious cake.
