9 is fine

Adriana's party was a blast. Although the salon plans fell through (they had to close down for some reason) the girls really enjoyed themselves.

This is how the invitations turned out. There is a great site that will generate tickets for you with whatever text you want on them here.


The decor was really fun. I threw black material over my curtain rod to create a stage area for the girls to perform. They sang along to Hannah Montana music videos and were not shy about it! We also played "name that Hannah tune", which they loved.


Each girl took home a tshirt... I found iron on jewel letters at WalMart and put words like "Fab", "Glam", "Rock" and "Star" on each shirt (the tees are plain Hanes for Girls tees, also from WalMart).


Adriana modelling her shirt:


The mic-a-like cupcakes:


A small group shot - you can sort of make out the backstage pass necklaces each girl got. I made them myself and they looked very realistic. I wish I'd gotten a closer shot! When they arrived, each girl received a stage name. If anyone forgot to use stage names rather than real names, they had to give up their backstage pass to whomever caught them. The girl who'd collected the most at the end of the party won Hannah Montana shampoo.


I thought this was so cute - Adriana's little brothers peeking at all the action from the top of the stairs!


On to the next party... Jonah is turning 6 soon, and he wants a Dinotrain party. (?) But first I must finish packing! I'll be by your blogs as soon as I'm done!
