Little Girl's Jewelry Birthday Party
I was asked to do a Girl's Jewelry Birthday Party for 11 girls ages 5 to 8 yrs. old. Thanks to Rena Klingenberg's wonderful advice on http://www.home-jewelry-business-success-tips.com/ I was able pull this off and have loads of fun with these great kids! The favorite colors were pink, blue and purple in this order. I must admit I was fearful of not having enough pink! Today's girls love things that are truly sparkly and bright. I used mostly glass beads and rose quartz hearts/stars. To keep the expense down I used sterling silver plated clasps. Several bead containers were placed on the floor and I had the girls sit in a circle taking serveral minutes to look over the beads. We talked about colors and designing a bracelet. I had the girls pass out the bead boards and pink pouches. It was fun helping them and certainly they did not need much help in designing - they were fantastic and creative! I never had the opportunity to be with a group of little girls. Each one had their own personality starting to emerge. I just adored them and had so much fun. My husband did ask me what's going to happen when they all finish their bracelets at once and come at me with their little bracelets to be finished? They did form a line and waited patiently for their turn. I am amazed at how much the girls enjoyed having this jewelry birthday party!
I took the photo of all the girls finished bracelets. It's truly a friendship photo that will make memories.
