She put glitter in their hair... ...she painted their fingernails......she had coach Michelle give them tattoos. Then each girl passed out the Valentine's they brought for each other. What a sweet and fun group of girls. Aubrey has made some great friends on her team. Coach Ellen went out of her way to make this very special for the girls.

We got to the restaurant a little early so we had to wait while they finished setting up the table... This beautiful table was decorated by Melissa (in the black hat), the owner of The Bake Shoppe. Each plate at the table was different and just as adorable as this one. The 'first course' was tea and cookies. Aubrey picked the shape of the cookies (hearts), the color of the icing (pink) and the color of the sprinkles (blue). They had a blast trying on some of the fun hats that were laying on the table for decoration.
Melissa made this "Mad Hatter" outfit for her daughter's birthday and she let Aubrey try it on. MIMI is such a wonderful help to have at birthday parties. She is great at making my job as the hostess really easy. Aubrey and Ellery, one of her gymnastics teammates.Madi and Izzy M.K. Sally and Meyer
For the 'second course', the girls could choose anything they wanted for lunch. Most of them picked macaroni and cheese. After lunch, each girl was given their initial and they decorated it with torn pieces of scrapbook paper.
Melissa painted and glittered each letter that the girls received as party favors. They turned out really cute. The 'final course' was dessert. Aubrey picked chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing and pink/blue sprinkles. The moms also enjoyed lunch and these delicious petifores for dessert. Singing Happy Birthday!
The girls all gathered around so Aubrey could open her presents...

This was an incredible easy party (just pay the bill :-) and the girls had a really good time. The Bake Shoppe has delicious food and fabulous desserts...since Daddy and Carter missed the party we had to take one of the homemade ding-dongs home to them.
