  • Just do a plan party with her favorite colors. If she does not choose then choose for her. Get a cake, make a dinner, maybe a pinata then have some of her close friends have a slumber party. Which you could rent movies, have board games.

  • I meant plain party.

    Answer by Hatsumomo at 2:38 AM on Mar. 22, 2011

  • Have something simple at home - use a spring theme if she isn't focused on a character. Cook her favorite foods, invite over a few of her friends, play some games, put some fun music on, maybe even have a "movie time". If you get overly stressed at providing her the "perfect" party, neither she nor you will enjoy it. It should be more about the celebration of her life than something that ADDS stress.

    Kids remember the love and attention far more than they do whether the party was well structured.

  • Our mall has a Club Tabby where the girls get their hair and nails done. You could also do a party at home and let them do hair and makeup and decorate their own cupcakes before eating them.

  • I agree a hair and nail party at your house could be a lot of fun. Do you know anyone that does nails that you could have come over and do manicures for the girls. You could even call a local vocational high school and see if they have girls that would come to your house to do nails, make up and hair and how much it would cost. They do not usually charge a bunch of money for that sort of thing and the girls would have a blast. Then you wouldn't need a theme or anything
