For those who don’t know, Fashion Angels are fabulous dolls who are totally into fashion, design, and, of course, Project Runway. So, have your kids bedeck themselves in boas and glitter like Lulu, Bebe, Izzy, and Debo for a Fashion Angels Birthday Party!
Create an invitation to look like a snazzy purse – take bright pink heavy cardstock and cut into the shape of a handbag. Decorate one side with black polka dots and, along the top edge, hot glue black fur (try Lion Brand’s Fun Fur Yarn). On the back side, write your party details and suggest that your guests arrive in their finest. There are some groovy purse invitations you can purchase, too.
Prior to the party, hit your local thrift stores for chic items such as wigs, shoes, and jewelry. Head to the drug store for hairspray and other supplies to polish the look because on the big day, you’ll set up the location to look like a Runway complete with beauty stations! As the squealing girls arrive, hand them sketch pads and colored pencils so they can sketch their own ideas and designs. They can move through the stations getting their nails done, their wigs set in place, and outfits accented with jewelry and accessories. Then, it’s time to dim the lights, hit the music, and “walk the runway, girls!”
Keep the food light for the working models: fruit kebabs with a cream cheese & yogurt dip, fruit smoothies, petite fours, and a huge vegetable and cheese tray. Don’t forget to send your fashionistas home with their party favor kit.
Sometimes girls just want to be girls and a Fashion Angel Birthday Party lets them be just that. Have fun!
