Favors: With only 6 girls to shop for I hit the dollar store and made make-over kits. It included eye shadow in fun colors, lip gloss, nail polish, clip on braids (I got on clearance, yay me), nail file, eye make up remover and vitamin e sticks that I , and of course a sweet treat of chocolate cake pop. I found the totes at Walmart for $1.00/3pk in the crafting section.

Found the poem on Life in General blog.
Decor: I got plenty of inspiration via Pinterest. Loved the way everything turned out. I kept cost low by designing and making all my own printables. I hit up Walmart for $1.00 paper plates/table clothes etc... For food: I just did Little Ceaser $5.00 pizzas for dinner, cupcakes ($7.00 from Jewel) and cake pops for dessert and cereal and donuts for breakfast. Yep, when I say I am on a budget, I mean it!

|Just a few printables to tie it all together.|
|My first attempt at a cake banner...not too shabby!|
|I hate making these but they do make great centerpieces.|
|Saved on expensive helium balloons by hanging them upside down. Love!|

Party Activities: Aside from a lot of giggling, squealing and singing, these little ladies had a full night of activities planned for them. I started the night out with a craft. The girls decorated their own pillowcases. Then they moved on to make-overs, painted their toes, had a pillow fight, karaoke, a glow bracelet hunt (girls got to keep what they found), and finished off by telling funny stories while tucked into bed. Whew...they finally passed out around 11:30pm and got up at about 7am! I fed them breakfast (individual boxes of cereal and donuts) and they just played until their parent picked them up. I thought they would sleep in and I wanted to feed them breakfast so I did say 10am pick up time but 8:30am-9 would have worked too.

$1.00 Store Pillow Cases and I pre-drew the girls initials on it in block letters to save time.

|Made a Spin the Bottle Nail Polish Game that is going around Pinterst (Can't find the original source). This game went a little slow and the girls just wanted to paint their toes so even though it's a good idea it didn't work out with this group.|
|Thanks for checking out my party!|
