So when it comes to her birthday she has always been outside of the box sets. Which I love but it sure makes my job harder. Thankfully she starts planning them a year out. This last weekend we celebrated her 8th birthday in Nancy Drew style.
Nancy Drew. She has been collecting the original books for years now. (one of these days she will read them, I hope) So we went with the original colors of yellow and teal. She wanted a vintage skirt like Nancy. I got the shirt idea from this talented lady. (click here) Under the Nancy Drew silhouette is all of the original titles to the books.
For dessert Mouse wanted blondie cupcakes. Because in the new Nancy Drew movie she has blondies. I will just tell you know don't make them! They were horrible. Thankfully most eight year olds have no knowledge of good food. I also made some homemade marshmallows in blue. Then we decorated the table and background with her book collection. Mouse also made paper cut outs of the book titles, as you can see in this picture the orange staircase goes with the book The Hidden Staircase.
Now this was the two parts Mouse was adamant on! We had to play a game clues. So Steve and sat down and wrote out clues that lead the 12
In the end Mouse was happy. I am so amazed with her personality every day. For her birthday we got her golf clubs. We are all taking lessons this summer. It will be Mouse and I's second year, but Steve's first. Then she also got her ears pierced! Steve also got her a Frank Sinatra look book. It is very cool. And I made her a diary.
Oh and in case you didn't guess next year's birthday theme GOLF!
