I had a couple of little tiny get-togethers for Ruby's birthday. One small one with just the family with baby cupcakes on the Sunday before and then a small slumber party later in February when I'd had a chance to catch my breath. Ruby invited the two neighborhood pals, Kayla and Ari, as well as Sofia (a strategical move on my part - Ruby adores her and I knew she'd love helping me :-)) Also, Grandma Genie was in town so that was a nice help as well.
Ruby requested "PRINCESSES!" and really, is anyone surprised? So, I got crafty and tried to make the living room very royal.
The entrance to the castle
The cake table
The princess upon entering
The girls all got some fake princess-y hair
And we decorated crowns. Here's Ari with hers.
And Sofia. Every slumber party should have a Sofia.
All in all, it was so very smooth. They played, ate and played some more. Ending with a viewing of Mulan and they were all asleep by 9:15. 5 girls happy as can be. Ruby's still talking about it, which if you know Ruby, that means it made an impression!
