My daughter Braiyha really wanted a spa party to celebrate her 10th birthday, but wanted to invite 20 friends & relatives. After checking out local spas and party establishments, I figured I could save a bundle by doing it myself. So, after months of planning, work and MANY DIY projects, we created Spa de Brai' in my grandmother's den, and then Cafe' de Brai' for a dinner party afterwards in her dining room!
Everyone having a great time!
When one of the "clients" acted as if she was at a real spa, and demanded that her nails be done over!
Most Touching Moment
Seeing my daughter enjoy her day, and hearing her say "thank you mommy! All the girls will be talking about it at school next week!"
Of course the birthday girl in her signature pink spa wrap, and then a leopard shirt with pink skinny jeans and leapord sneakers
cake and a sweets buffet that included cupcakes, chocolate covered pretzels, caramel apples, marshmallow nailpolishes, cake pops, and lots of candies
personalized favor boxes with loufahs, fake nails, lipstick shaped ink pens, mini hand sanitizers, mini bottles of apple cider, juice boxes, lip gloss, body glitter
Activities / Games
Girls rotated between stations: manicures, pedicures, facials & makeup, spa crafts. Photo shoot after spa services. Dinner to end the day!
didn't really keep count, but probably around $600 or $700. Saved a ton by doing a lot of the work myself! Also, started to buy stuff months in advance and found MANY bargains at Dollar Tree!
