We now have a Miss.-FOURyr-old in our house. And we celebrated it in style with a Minnie BOW-tique party. Mom decided on the classic red with white polka-dot scheme.
The highlight of the festivities was our make-up. Most of the girls have never worn make-up so this was a real treat. Everyone got Minnie ears, they picked out 3 different bows, they got their own tube of lipstick and eye shadow applicator along with their very own mirror stand ($1 store hand mirrors hot glued and tied to a $1 paper towel stand).
I made the Minnie ear headbands from a headband (6 for $1 at Family Dollar *nice one too*!) black felt, cardstock and hot glue gun. For a great tutorial see thesuburbanmom. The kiddos used clipped one of the three bows that they chose for their headbands.
The dollar store had red and white polka-dot party hats, paper straws, napkins, favor boxes, balloons. I couldn't have been luckier!
Some of the girls were more experienced than others with make-up. Infact I think some of them were applying war paint.
The cake/cupcakes turned out spectacular. I now can say that I have tackled fondant, and it really wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. The bows on the cupcakes are fruit by the foot. The kids LOVED them!
I have a recent "thing" for doilies. They look so cute tied around a hot dog.
Happy Birthday Miss.-4yr-old!
