A few weeks before her birthday, Ella had a special day with her Mom. She attended her first ever live theatre and enjoyed seeing an evening performance of The Lion King very much. Earlier in the afternoon, Mom and daughter enjoyed their first ever manicure and pedicure together.
Perhaps it was that afternoon and an afternoon she spent here helping me make Easy Peasy Organics scrub and facial cleanser that Ella suddenly told her Mom that she didn’t want her birthday at the beach or splash park again this year, but instead wanted to have a Spa birthday at home. So, her Mom went shopping and I started baking and before we knew it, the day of Ella’s party had arrived. Ella’s house was decorated and ready for her guests.
As was Ella
and the cookies were finished too
The girls had a craft to do that they would take home with them. Painting and
decorating jewelry boxes while waiting their turn at the foot-soak and nail polishing station.
Or while waiting to complete their own organic facial scrubs made with honey and yogurt.
Before gathering round for the gift opening followed by finger sandwiches and other light refreshments.
Then of course, the best part of birthdays…wait for it…
Getting to share your favourite ice cream cake with your friends and your family.
Ella handed each of her guests a little basket that included children’s nail polish, a nail buffer, a new hair band, some spongy toe separators, children’s lip gloss, a purse size bottle of children’s hand cleanser, and a thank-you cookie. They also went home with some spa themed cookies in a little bag. Ella was to have signed each of her Thank-You cookies with edible food writers but her forgetful Nanna (yours truly) neglected to bring them with her
Happy Birthday Bella Ella! We love you to the moon and back ♥
