Laura's Crafting Party

Laura had her birthday party the Friday before her birthday. We had it at Crafter's Corner because I just didn't know how to do a crafting party on my own. This means she really had to limit the friends she could invite, but we ended up with the most adorable group of girls!
They each had the first letter of their name to decorate. They picked their colors and all worked really hard to paint them.
While the base coat of paint dried, Laura opened her presents.
The girls finished off their letters with glittered polka dots and a clear coat to seal. They also picked out a ribbon to tie on their finished product. Isn't Laura's cute?!
Since it was over dinnertime, we fed the girls pizza. Laura laughed her way through blowing out her candles. Everyone seemed to enjoy her specially requested "cookie" cupcakes.
I think it was a successful party. Laura certainly enjoyed herself and felt special. It was wonderfully low-stress to not have it at my house and be in charge of the crafts, and it wasn't very expensive.

  2. What wonderful pictures you got! I really like the window one, the one with Laurea and her cake, and the one with the finished product. They all smiled so nice! Lily had a great time. It was a wonderful idea to have it at a craft shop. I am glad that it was less stress for you!
