Ideas for Nahir's birthday party

So, the period that lies in between, has finally arrived when my sweet 11 year old niece crosses the threshold of childhood to enter the period where she is just shy of the teenage years. 

Sis here you will find some birthday party ideas for my soon to be 12 year old niece


Birthday Party Ideas

You have the pool.  So how does a Spa Party sound?

You can treat your soon to be teens guests to a lavish spa makeover with this great party theme.

You can create your own birthday party invitations. It can be a fun projects. An idea is to just to place some candles and soaps with ribbons and add a tag to announce the party.
You could tie pink, white balloons to direct them to  the spa birthday party.

Set up a screen or a room for the girls to change. Have soft music playing.. Set the mood the minute they walk in.

                                          Have towel stacked in baskets


For the decorations you would need lots of scented candles to create a soothing (if you do decide to go with candles you will need to keep a close eye on them) and tranquil lighting for the party.

                                                                                    Scented candles

                                                                           Decoration for your patio


                                                     Table decoration                                                             



Check them out! They have a lots of ideas for Spa parties

Treat your little fashionistas with whipped yogurt and chocolate fondue.

For the party activities set up small seating areas with tables. The girls can  have fun with massages, facials, manicures or pedicures. You can set up bowls with ribbons, hair clips, make up etc for them to have fun.


Check out their website. You can get more ideas. 


Cake Ideas

Cupcakes would be great for this Spa theme, because the girls can easily pick them up.
If you want to do a cake, you can add one of the party favors onto a plain cake. Or bake a sheet cake and carve out a lipstick tube, nail polish bottle, ect. I think you and the girls can have a lot of fun gettting it ready.




Food And Drinks

Ask the bday girl. She may lead you in the right direction.
Strawberries dipped in chocolate

Organic chips and dip

Cut up veggies with Ranch dip

Pink lemonade(make fresh lemonade and put in blender with a few strawberries) Place a strawberry on the rim of glass.

Champagne(white grape juice with sparkling water)

 Or you can go with....

Slumber Parties

Sleepover parties include party games, crafts and adorable sleepover party supplies. For organizing a slumber party you would need to fill the party room with pillows, blankets, bean bag chairs, and stuany other decorations that she may want for the room. Decorate the space with twinkling lights and scatter balloons all over. Create your own invitation or go and buy them. It all depends on the time you have left fefore the birthday party. Another option is phone calls or invitations via e-mails. They work wonders.
As the guests start to come in, hand them small flashlights and brightly decorated slipper socks. To make your party a fun event you can organize party games such as pillow case obstacle race. The food for sleepover parties should be simple and should basically include a host of munchies. Veggies and dip, soda, chips and juice are a good choice for the party food. Don't forget to get them some movies.
Let's not forget about the next day. Hot cocoa  for all of them with some cookies and off they go.

Sports Party:

My nice is a very sporty girl so maybe just maybe you may want to consider one as well. Decorate the party room with colors that match her favorite sport, or sports team. You can use streamers and balloons to decorate the space. You can also add sports posters to the walls.
For the party games organize fun games like long jumps and water volleyball.

The sports party favors include stickers of the favorite players, colorful candy, wristbands or power bars.

But at the end of the day, it is best to consult her while planning the big bash. After all it is her special day. So include her in the planning and have loads of fun organizing the birthday bash that she will remember for life. I am sure that by now you have it all in order.

Christmas day

It extremely cold outside. The weather got me thinking about a nice way to start Christmas day.

What about?

                                         Our family, friends, our special someone


                                   A nice fire place, your beautiful Christmas tree

                                                      Hot chocolate with churros

Let's not forget about the presents. As you know we only get them if we are good Samaritans during the year. So hurry we still have time to make up for the days that we weren't that good. I just hope Santa is watching : ) 
You know sometimes you have to really work for that present.

Tip for the kids: if you want to keep Santa happy do as I used to when I was a girl leave him a token of appreciation. Remember Santa has a lot of other places to go to after he stops at your home.
