Does your birthday girl want a “posh soiree” (that’s fancy for fancy party) for her birthday party? Does it seem like she owns every Fancy Nancy book there is? Then here are some ideas for the swankiest shin dig around!
Fancy Nancy Birthday Invitations:
Oh-la-la! Invite everyone to don their fanciest ensembles and dress up for this extravagant fete. Greet guests with an enthusiastic “Bonjour!” and say “Enchente” to everyone you meet for the first time.
Fancy Nancy Birthday Decor
For a Fancy Nancy bash, there is no end to the amount of decorations you can put up. Make a large, ornate welcome sign saying “Bienvenue à la Partie” which is “Welcome to the Party” in French, the fanciest of all languages.
Have plenty of decorations in pink and fuchsia (a fancy word for purple, Nancy’s favorite color). Tie tulle to all chairs, wrap around poles, use as bunting in doorways, etc. Put out bouquets of pink and purple helium balloons and table cloths (Celebrity Party Planner can blow up the balloons for you). Drape bunches of mardi gras style beaded necklaces every where and pile on table surfaces. Kids can put them on as dress up during the party and collected as party favors as well.
An important and fun activity is, of course, dress up! Anything is fancy with a pile of accessories – tiaras, boas, over the top hats, scarves, beaded and other costume jewelry, hair clips and bows, lip gloss, and more.
Guests can also make their own fancy necklaces and bracelets with shiny and blinged-out beads and string from the craft store.
Fabulous games can include “pin the bow on Frenchy the Poodle.” Find and print out a large picture of Fancy Nancy’s poodle Frenchy, get a glamorous bow to pin into her head.
Play “What’s The Fancy Word For…” You can have a list of not-so-fancy words and the guests can come up with as many fancy words as they can. The winner is the one who created the most words. For younger parties, you can reverse the game – have a list fancy words and the guests can guess the non-fancy word.
Celebrity Party Planner can help you hire a “Fancy” party entertainer character who can help glam up the guests with face painting and more.
Fancy Nancy Birthday Food
For the meal, serve “brunch” or “supper” instead of plain lunch or dinner. Even though kids don’t always like fancy food, you can fancy up even kid food. Make simple sandwiches and use heart and flower shaped cookie cutters to make them look exquisite (a fancy word for beautiful). Put a fancy cocktail toothpick in each because as Nancy says, sandwiches DO taste better with a frilly toothpick.
For dessert, serve “parfaits” (that’s a fancy word for ice cream sundaes) and/or cupcakes with PLENTY of sprinkles and candy on top – to make them fancy of course. You can even have the children do their own sprinkling as a fun (and messy!) activity.
