Happy New Year to all friends/followers of Strawberry Annie's. Here at Strawberry HQ, we are full of enthusiaum and we have a good feeling that 2011 is going to be the year of the Strawberry!
Before we get properly back to work, we have a party to plan for the youngest strawberry. Being a very girly girl, she has requested a Fancy Nancy Party based on the gorgeous books by Jane O'Connor (find out more
Fancy invites were ordered from Etsy, and handed out before the school holidays. With less than a week to go its time to plan what we are going to do. Some of you might know that I use to run a children's party business for several years, but despite this (or maybe because of it) I still find planning a party stressful but I am determined to make this fun for her.
We are going to make a sparkly 'Bonjour' sign for the front door (Nancy likes to use French words for extra fancyness) We are going to have a beauty parlour set up for painting nails and adding glitter but I need a really good name for this so I can make a sign. The room will be decorated with lots of pink sparklyness so I need to buy streamers and bits for this. Our living room is pink and red anyway so quite girly to start with!
The birthday tea will be a big part of the party, so I am going to set up the table in the kitchen and use lots of cake stands, posh plates etc.
Now I just need to start actually making things and getting organised.
