1. Party Invitations
We’ve got you covered! You can click here to print out your very own Fancy Nancy invitations.
Encourage your guests to wear their fanciest attire. Crowns, tiaras, boas … and don’t forget the boys! Our motto is: the more bowties, the better! Remember though, gentlemen take their hats off indoors.
You might want to consider having a few extra accessories on hand, just in case someone forgets to dress up. You wouldn’t want anyone feeling as though they’d made a faux pas.
Decorations don’t have to be time-intensive, or expensive, to make a statement. Here are some ideas for easy supplies that could help your party sparkle:
- glittery garland
- balloons (pink and purple, of course)
- crepe paper
- artificial (or real!) flowers
Drape some glittery garland around your light fixtures or down a banister. Tie a helium balloon to each chair, and you can use crepe paper as a tablecloth or runner.
And don’t forget this suggestion from this post:
Decorate your birthday space with charming paper lanterns and butterflies of different sizes cut from colorful paper. Enlist an artistic friend to paint pretty butterflies on guests’ faces. Create tees with butterfly outlines, and have guests color them in with fabric markers.
4. The Food
Oh my goodness! There are so many creative fans of the books out there, and they have whipped up some amazing-looking food.
