Bookish Tea Party Fun: ANOTHER Frozen Party!

Can you believe we hosted another Frozen party???? Yes we did. The little ones love it so much, we can’t stop hosting them! Check out my collage to see what happened.

I’ll admit I’m a little tired of the Frozen theme but the girls have so much fun it’s easy to get in the groove!

Did you check out that tiara? I picked it up for Leah at a thrift store. Now we BOTH have tiaras!

Have you ever hosted a Frozen party? Have I given you enough ideas to host your own?

Bookish Tea Party Fun: Pirates

If you’ve spent any length of time speaking with me you’ll learn that I love pirates (among other things).  Imagine how thrilled I was when we hosted a Captain’s Tea Party!


We laughed while I read Twenty-six Pirates, a book that gives a pirate type name for every letter of the alphabet.  Fun!

We had pirate treats, complete with doubloons and a treasure map!















Not those pirates.


Yarrrrrr! Just a coupla mateys to swab the decks!

Bookish Tea Party Fun: Minnie Mouse Fun

Nothing is more fun than a costume party, right? What about a birthday costume party?? During October, we were lucky to host a birthday party for a little miss who wanted a Minnie Mouse Costume Birthday party!

Isn’t that cute? Like I’ve said before; my partner Leah is a creative genius.

Got cookies?

We do! Sweet little pink minnie cookies. YUM!

As a bonus, the party goers attended the party in their costumes!  We had 3 or 4 princesses, Iron Man, and Mike and Sully from Monster’s Inc. And never let anyone tell you that boys don’t like crafts.

Why? Because Iron Man took off his mask to make a specially decorated mask for this costume party!

It was great fun!  Have you ever hosted a costume party for kiddos?

Bookish Tea Party Fun: Fancy Nancy Games!

During our bookish tea parties, we play games! Nothing is cuter than seeing a gaggle of beribboned and bedazzled little princesses (and sometimes pirates) running around the bookstore on a scavenger hunt.  Here are some fun games we played recently.
Leah is super tricky as she hides the butterfly under the cups and then shuffles the cups around.  The party goers have to decide what cup is the right one.
SCORE!! The partygoer (BIRTHDAY GIRL) chooses the right cup!
Next is our famous scavenger hunt. Can you find the missing clothes for Fancy Nancy’s recital?
Where could it be???
You know what the extra fun bit about this game is? Whenever there are customers looking at books near these shelves, they instantly want to help the partygoers find the missing items. It’s SO cute!
What party games do you like to play with your guests aged approx 5-9?
