Fashion makeover birthday party


This is a fun way to celebrate a girl’s birthday for ages 6-9 years. We did it with our girls and it was a hit! We converted the garage to our staging area.

We got out our girls sports uniforms, old costumes and a few random things from the thrift store so that we had plenty of “looks” to choose from. We wrote all of the different styles on pieces of paper (ie: tennis player, fashion model, cowgirl, etc) and then the girls picked randomly out of a hat so they knew what they would be dressed as for the evening. We invited the parents back at the end of the evening to watch the fashion show and join us for cake and sparkling cider.
