How to throw a FANCY party:

Step 1: Start with a fancy girl about to turn 6.

Step 2: Send out your fanciest invites to all your friends.
Step 3: Hand make an apron for each guest, using the fanciest coordinating
fabrics you can find, use ric rac, ribbon and all sorts of fancy trim and stitching.
Step 4: Gather all your fancy books, candy, ribbon and
balloons and arrange then perfectly for the centerpiece
Step 5: Invite lots of fancy girls and have them make their lunch
(complete with pink, red and purple bread for the sandwiches)
while wearing the fancy aprons you made.

Step 6: Make giant cupcakes with to-die-for buttercream,

add lots of sprinkles, ribbon, diamond rings and butterflies,

all glittery and fancy, of course.

Step 7: Let the girls eat have their cake AND eat it too!


Step 8: You can't have a fancy party without PARFAITS! Step 9: Make sure your name is Dawn or at least have some of her talents,

which include, but are not limited to:

Designer, Pastry Chef, Cake Decorator extraordinaire, Seamstress and party planner

I still haven't bought my girls the Fancy Nancy books. I have another friend that says they are great. I know that even with that kind of inspiration I could never pull off a party like one of yours or Dawn's. I was a little thrown off by the pumpkin instead of the flower. Cute! I love this time of year. Thank you for being "friend Jane" (said in a deep two year old voice.)
