Spa Party!

Not too long ago we planned a birthday party for a little girl who was turning 8. She gave us a list of things that she wanted to do; paint nails, make-up, hair, facials, and a fashion show! So, we combined all of those things into a very fun...

spa party!

{Foot Bath Massager}

We set up stations with a "spa stylist" at each station, doing the girls nails, makeup, hair, and facials. Upon arrival of each girl, they got to choose a headband to keep their hair back during their facials, and then went right to the foot bath massager, where they soaked their feet for a couple of minutes and tried a couple of hand scrubs and lotions.

After the foot soak the girls got facials and had their nails painted whatever color they chose.

{Hair and Makeup Stations}
Next, they got their hair and makeup done by one of our stylist
and got all dolled up for the fashion show!

{Accessories for the Fashion Show}

Each girl was introduced as she strutted down the "cat walk" and the other little girls called out compliments like "you're gorgeous" and "I love your hat!"

Dinner was after the Fashion Show. We had the birthday girl's favorite, pizza. One pepperoni, one cheese, with some fruit on the side and Parisian sparkling lemonade in fancy glasses! And of course, birthday cake for dessert!

The girls had such a great time and so did we. Be sure to try this girly party theme for your little girl's next birthday party!


  1. Melissa, the party sounds really adorable and I love that they got to choose a headband. But, I can't help but wonder about 8 year olds wanting make-up, manicures and a fashion show. I'm only the mom of a 2 1/2 year old girl, so we haven't reached that stage yet, but she's also never lived in the Unites States. I wonder if she'd want that at 8 if we are still here. I don't like the trend of girls wanting to be like women!

  2. Yea, it's a hard balance...wanting them to be able to enjoy pretending to be like "Mommy" but also wanting to protect their innocence. I sometimes wonder the same things!
