Waaaay back in October we held a Gemstone theme party for Eleanor's 7th. It was super fun to plan for, all the glitter and gems in the world! I decided to gift the kiddos some gemstone soaps - tutorial found here. Definitely the most labour-intensive element of the party planning. Also the most fun, once I got the hang of it. I purchased some simple cotton bags from Pop Roc Parties to hold the soaps, but couldn't just leave them plain. So. Glitter.
There was no real planning beforehand for these, just a fine-tipped sharpie pen, some craft glue and loads of glitter. I also happened to have a bunch of mini gemstones (found on ebay) left over from Eleanor's Mermaid Party. Totally perf.
The soaps may have been the actual favour, but I hope our little guests continue to store treasure in these bags. I'm sorta tempted to glue glitter and gems to everything now, because I'm a magpie who wishes to feather my nest with shiny things...
More on this party soon!
