Fancy Nancy party time!

The party on Friday was a blast! The girls dressed up in their finery, including feather boas and sunglasses (I bought a really cheap joblot on eBay. Gotta love eBay) and bead necklaces. They all looked very fancy.

There was dancing, of course there was dancing! But we also did some craft. I had bought paper cutout girls for them to decorate and they set to work armed with scrapbooking paper, bed trim, ribbons, sequins and textas.

"Serena's School of Extrememly Fancy Manners" had a session where Madame Serena taught the girls proper curtsying and walking tall with a book on the head. They were "presented" to the queen (birthday girl). Very fancy.

The table was decked out ready for the guests.... there was enough sugar to cover the RDA of a small nation :) Just the way a birthday party should be....

I was wondering how the boys would cope with the extreme "pink-ness" of the party, but they seemed to have a blast. If the attention lavished on them by the girls now is anything to go by, we're in for a fun time when they hit the teens!!! I'm bracing myself already!

It was a great day....though there was sadly not much photo coverage since my camera (phone) was also busy being the source of party music. The wonders of modern technology...


  1. Mari that looks wonderful, I can see you put a lot of time into the preparation. I'm sure Little Possum had an amazing time and felt very special...just how it should be.

  2. We are having a fancy nancy party on saturday. And the boys are going to be princes. THey have their own boy-ish gift bags. For the girls, we have tulle-y skirts and boas and fancy purses. And I am supposed to be making a castle cake. It's a princess/fancy nancy birthday.

  3. What a fun party. Fancy Nancy is such a great idea for a girlie party. It sounds like a fantastic time was had by all!!

  4. Looks like lots of fun,I bet they all had a wonderful time.
