When I suggested to E that we do a Fancy Nancy party - and she agreed - I was thrilled. I love Fancy Nancy books. They are heartwarming, educational, and oh-so-cute. They make me sad for my friends who have all boys. :) So you can imagine the exhilaration (that's a fancy word for excitement) I felt while decorating for the party!
I covered a bookshelf in our dining room with a pink plastic tablecloth I found for $.39 in the clearance section of Walmart to create La Salon. The feathered boa and tiara were dollar store finds and the flowers were re-purposed from my father's funeral. (I think he would have gotten a kick out of that!) And, of course, the book is proudly displayed.
Marabelle Lavinia Chandelier (aka A's ballerina doll) also found a seat of honor, along with a sparkly E I found at Michaels and a strand of "pearls" I already had. The mirror - perfect for primping - was simply propped against the wall.
What's a Fancy Nancy party without a touch of Paris? Thanks, Beth, for the Eiffel Tower loan!
The Patisserie was elegantly decorated with an old sheet for a tablecloth (hey, these are 5 year olds!) and pink tulle sprinkled with silk roses (from the dollar store) to form the runner.
To create our fashion show stage, I hung a vintage (that's a fancy word for old) tablecloth from our bookshelves and decorated with sparkly hearts, another Walmart clearance find.
Come back tomorrow to find out how 8 fancy little ladies became even fancier!
