Step 1: Build a runway. Oh yes, the best "Sweet & Sassy" style parties MUST have a runway. Borrow curtains from a friend and ask Daddy to build a small platform. Cover it in fabric and the more twinkle lights the better. (You also might want to lock the cat in a room because they will attack the fabric and twinkle lights.)
Step 2: Invite your friends, but also invite your Gee and Aunt Bonnie and Aunt Bonnie's friend Jenny too. This is very important. These girls got glamore skills and they will doll the guests up. Gee does nails, Jenny does SPARKLE make-up, and Aunt Bonnie will style everyone's hair however they wish. (special note: girls with straight hair will want theirs curly, and girls with curly will want it straight.)
Step 3: Make fascinators for as your party craft and TUTUs are the awesome-est party favor. Okay, so the fascinators might not want to stay in your guests hair, but you can quickly turn them into corsages or add them to the waist band of your tutus.
Step 4: Turn the DANCE station on Pandora and R.O.C.K.I.T.O.U.T!! OH YEAH!! (group hugs are a must)
Step 7: Choreograph a sweet show for the parents when the return at pick up time. And your group routine should have a conga line, best friend catwalk pairings, and individual pose striking too.
Step 6: Take lots of photos and video! A video mash up of the party photos and videos makes for a really special thank you note.
