Alexa's Sweet Shoppe

Alexa decided she wanted to have her 3 best friends over from school for her birthday and she wanted to have a Sweet Shoppe. So we started planning. She had so much fun being part of it and picking stuff out. It was especially fun to pick out the candy.

It was such a fun party to put together. We actually did it rather quickly with a stop at the Dollar Store, Hobby Lobby, Michaels and Wal-Mart.

Alexa had fun picking out the candy and putting the Sweet Shoppe together.

It was a beautiful summer evening so we set a table up outside. Alexa loved it when we covered the chairs for Emma's Fancy Nancy party and asked if she could have her chairs covered too! We made tissue paper pom poms to decorate the table and lollipop name place cards. We made little sandwiches and wrapped them in a little piece of scrapbook paper to make them look cute. We cut watermelon in to circles and put sticks in them to make them lollipop watermelon sticks. We also had some chips, veggies and pink lemonade!

What a sweet group of girls!

I love how these pictures turned out with Alexa and her friends.

The girls threw on some paint shirts and painted some water bottles we found at the Dollar Store with paint pens. They are a very artsy bunch so if was fun to see them at work!

Then we came in for a picture by the cupcakes!

We sang "Happy Birthday" and Alexa made a wish!

The girls ate their cupcakes.

It was time for the Sweet Shoppe to open. The girls were so cute as they filled their buckets with candy. They kept saying this is the best sweet Shoppe ever especially because it doesn't cost anything.

Alexa also sent them home with a toothbrush so they can brush away all those sweets!

It really was a picture perfect night! Look at that sky!

Alexa had fun opening gifts.

We then walked to the park for a little while that is a block from our house. The girls were so cute as they walked hand in hand. Her friends are so sweet and always include Emma too! What a great group of girls!

We finished the evening with a few games. The girls played "Hot Candy" which is like Hot Potato. We wrapped a ball in fabric and tied it on each end to make it look like a piece of candy. We also played "Candy Toss." The girls had to toss the piece of Candy into the pink buckets. And last but not least racing with gummy worms and gumballs on spoons.

so sweet! hey, did your girls do dance at Dance Gallery? Am trying to decide where to have Ainsley go to dance next year and Jaymi Vandewater suggested Dance Gallery.

The party is darling, but what is cracking me up is the difference in photos from this party to shane's! The girls all posed so sweetly and made such cute pictures for you. And the boys are so funny and moving all around willy nilly and you can just feel the energy coming from them! I could just so relate to that.
Again, I'm so impressed that you got all of this done so quickly. I would not call that "simple," friend. It was indeed a sweet party.
