|One of the invitations - they were handwritten on the front with more typed info on the back,|
plus we added some magnetic tape so the girls could easily put the invites on the fridge.
|That lace is so stylish, right?|
|One cute little babushka.|
The theme wasn't really babushka-y at all... (sorry to everyone who got really excited, but we found something better). The girls were given handbags at the door filled with Babushka Bucks (our very own currency for the afternoon filled with shopping and pampering!) and we started the games. You heard right, that was shopping and pampering I just said! I mean no 12 year old girl can get enough clothes.
Here's how it went... the first hour or so were spent indulging in the food available (jelly cups, lollies, chips, nuts), wishing the birthday girl a happy birthday (we had cupcakes in cases that were to die for) and playing games such as pass the parcel and musical statues so that the girls could earn themselves more money. All the prizes for the games were just paper Babushka bucks - easy.
Then it was time to get hair, make-up and nails done. We had parents helping by doing make-up, curling, straightening and styling hair and some girls got manicures too.

So tell me, what have you done for a 12 year old birthday party?
