Happy Monday everyone! I just had to share how incredibly happy I am today! I received an email earlier saying that Parties On Purpose had been chosen to be one of the featured parties today on Catch My Party! Yippee!

I am so excited to share these birthday party pics with you. I had such a fun time planning my daughter Mckenna’s 9th birthday party. She wanted a Dance Party and then in the middle of planning switched to a Fashion Party. So we finally decided to have the best of both worlds and combine the two! Our Fashion Dance Party included all the fun activities from our Dance Party Theme (makeup, music and a fun dance party) plus tutu’s, jewelry and a red carpet runway show to add the Fashion touches to her party. We also added some fun hair streaks and Dance Central 3 so the girls could “step up to the streets!”
I absolutely loved the party printables from Frog Prince Paperie and they complemented this party so well. I put together a collage that consisted of some of her photo’s edited with a Pop Art photo app. I put the collage in the front entrance of our house so that it set the tone of the party, especially with the dance fever picture. The first activity was the backstage VIP area where the girls had a change to get all decked out with makeup and hair color. We also had the girls dancing in the Dance Central 3 area while the hair and makeup sessions where going on. Once everyone finished getting made up, we then had the girls to get their tutu’s and jewelry from Mckenna’s Fashion Boutique so we could get ready for the red carpet. The girls where so excited! Some of them danced down the red carpet and some of them did their best modeling poses. We even had one cute little girl do the worm…a red carpet first! After our red carpet show the girls enjoyed even more dancing and then it was time for those yummy “Fashion” cupcakes! The party ended with the girls taking home some treats from the candy buffet. What a great time we had! Mckenna’s already planning her next birthday!
