Well it would not be a proper birthday party in the Murphy house if I did not start planning like 10 weeks in advance right?
I started asking Lily what she wanted to do about her party about 2 weeks ago. She wanted Kim Possible and I wanted to do an official tea at Gracie's English Tea Room. I was thinking what in the world I could do for a K.P. party. She met her at Disney world a few months ago and fell in love. I looked up some stuff online and got a few ideas but was thinking the party would be best for someone aged 6 or 7 and not 3.
I was driving home today and viola, I had the brilliant idea that we could do a Pinkalicious party. If you are not familiar and have a little girl, I highly recomend getting this book. They also have the Musical, probably in New York (I don't know) which is out of the question for us.
Anyway, Lily loves this book and was thrilled when I told her about the party idea. I gave her the K.P. choice again just to see what she would say. She looked at me like I was crazy and said "no way, I want Pinkalicious of course".
I checked out some sites for ideas, even though I had already jotted down a few I thought of, and got some really good ideas.
1. Girls must wear all pink, will give pink boas as they walk in
2. We will serve all pink food (but will have 1 table with "green" food)
3. We will decorate pink cupcakes in our pink aprons (will try to have monogrammed)
4. Will definitely read the book to the girls
5. Pink peonies (sp?) on all the tables
...... still looking and thinking.
I found the cutest blog though featuring an interview with the authors. (precious)
