The Lolly Shop Party

My daughter turned 10 last week.  I thought I'd share some photos of her party.  Firstly, we set up a table with pink noodle boxes and decorations.  Each girl decorated their noddle (lolly/sweets) box.

We made flowers from crepe paper following Martha Stewart's instructions.

We also bought some craft butterflies and foam stickers. 

Once the girls had finished decorating their boxes they went on a treasure hunt outside to find gold coins. (My sister's great idea)  I found the gold coins in the party section of Choice discount shop, and my son hid them around the garden.

When all the coins were found the girls came inside to 'The Lolly Shop'  They were able to buy sweets and lollies with their coins and this became their take home party favour box.  The girls loved being able to pick and choose which lollies to buy.  I really wanted to make some paper bunting and a sign for the Lolly shop table but I just ran out of time.

All the lollies had a price on them.

The lolly bracelets and sherbets were the most popular.

We set up the table and made tissue paper pom poms to hang from the chandelier.

You can find instructions on how to make these pom poms at Martha Stewart.

We also made a rainbow cake complete with fairy floss (cotton candy) clouds.

Everybody really enjoyed the party.  It's probably one of the last girly pink parties I'll be able to give her. 
They grow up so fast.
