Catching Up...

This past Sunday we celebrated Victoria's 7th birthday. I can not believe she is 7 already. Time sure does fly.
We "booked" her party at a place called Parties to go by Jo. It is right by our house; at the corner of Bandera and door to Scrapbook Heaven. I just LOVED it. I would totally recommened it to anyone needing a place for a kiddie party. It was fab!!! Everything I used to do and would do, but didn't have to:)
We invited 7 little girls. The cost was $17 per child, but it included alot so very well worth it:)
We arrived a little before 1pm which is when the party was planned for. We were allowed to bring in outside food so we picked up pizzas at Cici's and brought in our our drinks as well.

Everything was set up so nice. There is an area for parents to sit and that is where there is a table for setting up your outside food and an area for the presents; very cute. Parents can sit in this area and watch their child through a "window" that looks into the party room in back.

At the entrance to the party room they had a "banner" type sign; like those rope thingies on the red carpet. That was so no one without their "backstage" pass could get it:) They had me email them a pic of Victoria and they made the cutest backstage passes for the girls to wear to get it:)

In the party room there was all sorts of glittery, shiny things; CD and disco balls hanging and two GREAT photo op spots all dressed up. They had a vanity table complete with lights for thier mini make-overs and two small tables set up for the activities, crafts, etc. all dressed as well.

The girls got to pick out dress up costumes as soon as they got there, then they worked on their craft which were microphones; WAY cool craft an easy for them to do. Afterwards, they got to have their nails done and then their hair and make up. They were each given a hairpiece for thier hair that they got to keep and a really cute hairbrush.

They had a karoke machine set up and the girls sang to Hannah Montana and danced. It was so cute and they were all having so much fun:) They also played a hot potato type game that they girls just LOVED!!!

The place provided the cupcakes (they had a cupcake "tree") and juice boxes, but I made a cake as well so they sang to her twice:) After their cake and cupcakes we did presents and then after, they had Victoria sign "autographs" on their backstage passes...too cute.

They all got filled goodie purses which they provided as well, but we had some of our own to pass out too.
It really was an excellent experience. We'll definately be "booking" future parties there. I also applied for a job so I might be working there soon:)

Here's a few pics from the day. For some reason my computer has not allowed me to download all my pics and video from that day so I gotta try that again later casue it was really frustrating me:(
Pic of the birthday cake:)
The goodie cups we made for the girls:)

I'll upload more pics as soon as I can get them dowloaded. I finally got around to doing a LO this afternoon, but I'm not quite done. I'll upload that as soon as I get done.
