How to host a FANCY NANCY Birthday Party? Start to think about feathers, boas, butterflies, pink, over-the-top major girly-girly and big expressive words. Nobody knows fancy like Nancy! What better way to gussy up a birthday than with a Fancy Nancy theme?! It's a great departure away from the common Princess theme and momstown loves it as the theme is literacy based - the wonderful Fancy Nancy books!
Have guests decorate their own crowns to wear during the fancy party!
Butterflies are a favourite of Nancy's! Have guests decorate their own using fancy stickers, glitter, and sparkles!
Serve fancy coffee to adult guests and use (clean!) coffee filters and pipe cleaners to make more butterflies!
Have all your guests dress up in their fanciest clothes - adults too! Provide a dress up station with additional fancy items like tiaras, boas, feathers, sunglasses, and fancy barrettes. Our statio had sparkly eye shadow as well - which proved to be a messy addition (don't reco!).
Of course a Fancy Nancy storytime (or two) must be on the agenda!
Decorate the table with a butterfly centrepiece, pink tablecloth, and real teacups (full of juice)! Pull out your fancy platters to show off (the girls will be gentle and thrilled to use them).
Food and Cake
You can make cupcakes fancy...
...by having guests decorate their own!
A fancy cake is definitely in order! Make it fancy with layers, bright colours, a tiara and some feathers - dressed up just like Fancy Nancy herself!
Other food ideas - don't forget to gussy the food up with a Fancy name! Fancy Nancy loves French - you could name all the food in French too.
- Stars on a sphere (crackers with star cut out cheese - just use a mini cookie cutter)
- Fancy Tea sandwiches like cucumber & cream cheese finger sandwiches
- Rainbow Fruit kebabs
- Special Ham roll ups & fancy cheese cubes
- Garden vegetable surprise (veggie platter)
- Sweet nectar (white grapejuice) in teacups
Guests can bring home their crowns, their dress up station attire (tiaras, barrettes, boas, sunglasses) and some fancy candy in a little pink tote bag. Depending on your budget and number of guests, you could include an easy reader softcover version of a Fancy Nancy book.
