Emma's Soiree - Soiree Is French For Party

Emma decided she wanted to have a Fancy Nancy Party for her 6th birthday! I have to say this has been one of my favorite parties to plan.  What girl doesn't love getting fancy! It got pretty fancy at the McDonald house this weekend!
The invitations were sent!

The table was set. I covered the chairs with white plastic table clothes from the Dollar Store, wrapped some tool around them and finished them off with a flower and a boa.  We covered the table in boas, pearls and a fancy girls center piece.  Emma really wanted little name cards by each plate and I found these darling glass slippers at the Dollar Store and filled them with M&M's. 

Emma loves Fancy Nancy books! She loves dressing fancy and girly and she loves a party! So let's just say she was more than excited for her party!

We had a table all set up with flower hair clips, pearl necklaces, fancy rings and tieras for the girls to get fancy.  

The girls got fancy in a flurry with  a lot of giggles! They had fun picking out all their goodies to get FANCY before lunch!

Alexa started a trend of clipping a flower on her tiera

Emma and I had fun deciding on the menu for her fancy lunch.  We had little fancy sandwiches, chips with fancy dip, a fancy fruit mix, chocolate covered strawberries and marshmallows dipped in chocolate and sprinkles.  

It was so fun to sit back and watch the girl eat and chat! You could tell they felt like little princesses dressed all fancy and eating their fancy lunch! They especially thought their real fancy glasses and pink straws were a real treat! Most of them had never had a chocolate covered strawberry as well! 

Some fun pictures from their lunch! 

After lunch the girls made some little notebooks fancy while I painted their nails and added flowers or a little bling to them.

We then played Musical Chairs and when the girls got out they were able to grab their treat bag and look through it. 

It was so easy to find some girly, fancy things for their treat bags.  

We then headed to the table to make our Parfaits.  Parfaits is a fancy word for ice cream sundaes.  There was marshmallows, chocolate chips, M&M's, sprinkles, chocolate, caramel, whip cream and of course a cherry for the top.  

We added 6 candles to Emma's Parfait and sang "Happy Birthday!"

Shane got fancy and joined us for a Parfait! 

We then opened gifts and I read the girls the book Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy.

Here are all the fancy girls saying Ooo La La! Thanks girls for being special friends and making Emma's day special!
