Party Recap

Gumdrops, lollipops and candy gallore... Zion Keese is turning 4! The lollipop invitations were quite the prize at her pre-school and definitely set the tone for the party...

As guests arrived, we created a pathway with paper plates on dowels and cellophane-wrapped lanterns. We set up a ginger bread girl station where guests decorated their own gingerbread girl for a prize, we had a Sweet Spa set-up with nail technician (daddy), tattoos, purses, and candy-flavored lip gloss. If the line got too long for the spa, girls could jump, slide or shoot hoops in the huge moonbounce. Inside the basement, there was a fabulous candy display which included toothbrushes, sunglasses and princess toys, a dance competition, and Dr. Seuss' Happy Birthday To you on the gift table as the guest book. Each placesetting at the kids' food table had a candy topiary, plate, utensils were wrapped with candy necklaces... Zion requested an all girl party and I wanted to ensure that every princess in attendance had a blast.

Mission Accomplished!

Party Highlights

  • Best Dressed

    The birthday girl, Zion, of course. I found a Carter's Birthday Girl shirt at Burlington Coat Factory for $4. I ironed her name onto the back. My MIL bought these multi-colored striped tights and a matching tutu. My favorite part of her outfit, however, were the Chuck Taylor sneakers I blinged out! On one shoe I put a cupcake and the other I put her name! The toes were so bling-erific and Zion loves to wear them still :)
