Announce this diva day in style with custom invites - SNAP!
Dress up your Glitzy Girl Custom Invitation with your party details and a tagline that shouts "glamour!" Using a phrase like "Can you walk the walk?" or "Strut your stuff" is a great way to build excitement for the fashionista fun. With Party City's custom designs that are ready to ship in just 2 days, getting these invites out the door will be a snap, but won't look like it!
Get guests stylin' on their way to the bash
Your diva's guests wouldn't be caught dead arriving at the party with anything less than the hottest accessories - so help them out. Send these chic leopard print Purse Invitations. They're to die for and can double as accessories if guests just can't find anything to wear to your bash. If they forget where the party is, they just have to open their purse. To really jazz up their new accessory, add Lip Gloss cell phone favors to each invite. Your guests will feel all grown-up with their new cell, not to mention the three shades of gloss that come inside. (Cool trick: The antenna is the applicator.)
Give guests the V.I.P. treatment with party passes!
Talk about V.I.P.! Get your fashionistas in party mode with Glitzy Girl Tattoos in the envelope with your invitations as a "V.I.P. party pass." From purses to shoes, they can express their fashion style by wearing tattoos on their faces, inner wrists, shoulders, or even their ankles. Send the tattoos in the envelope with your Glitzy Girl Party Invitations to alert guests that they'll need to flash their tattoo access pass as they enter the party.
From Fashion Week to Birthday Bash! Glitzy Girl Games & Activities Ideas
Light up everyone's inner diva with these fashion girls birthday party game ideas! Style stations, a catwalk and a wall of glamour are easy, creative ways to make sure all her guests keep wearing those smiles from start to finish.
Share some of your unused makeup and department store samples with the glamour girls. Eyeshadow, mascara, blush and maybe even some lipstick can let them play all-grown-up.
For extra help, grab an older sister, cousin or babysitter. She can be the makeup artist, helping the ladies perfect their looks.
Walk the walk! Create a runway show game
Bust out your own vintage fashions including clothes, hats, scarves, jewelry and shoes. Remember how much fun YOU had playing dress-up in your mom's clothes? The outfits might be a little loose on your guests, but some fab belts will do the trick to cinch the clothes around your little ones. Once the girls are prepped and ready …
Divide glamour girls into two groups: Half the girls can walk the walk on your runway - have each guest pose in their favorite looks at the end of the catwalk. The other group plays fashion magazine editors, ooohing and aaahing, taking notes on Glitzy Girl Notepads and clapping, whistling, cheering and snapping paparazzi pics. Use disposable cameras or pretend Click Camera Favors to get shots of each glitzy girl mid-pose at the end of the runway.
Join the girls in judging the competition with "comment cards" made ahead of time on posterboard. In big pink-and-purple letters glammed-out with Glitter Glue, write fashionista-worthy sayings like, "YOWZA!" "OVER THE TOP!" and "FABULOUS, DAHHHLING!"
Have the two groups switch roles so everyone gets a turn on the runway!

Glam up your fashion party favor boxes
The fun shouldn't stop when the party's over! For a perfect Glitzy Girl party favor idea that will inspire many a "spa day" play date and beauty-themed sleepover. Try this:
We loved how professional party planner Tania Perez of Circle the Day Events (circletheday.com) in Sacramento, Calif., took this idea one gorgeous step further, glitzing up our Glitzy Girl Favor Boxes even more. Tania glued on pieces of Princess Prismatic Confetti plus Silver Curling Ribbon. How fab is that?! Creating each "purse" also makes a fun fashion party activity idea!
Share sweet treats in a fashion-girl-approved reusable container
Send guests home with goodies galore. Fill Hot Pink Mini Bowls with Kiddie Mix, wrap with clear cellophane and tie with Magenta Curling Ribbon and Silver Curling Ribbon. Kids love candy favors, and this favor idea will keep them in treats for days - plus they'll have that fabulously pink bowl to keep for lots of special treats later. They'll remember your fashion girl's party long after it's over.
Work those cover-girl shots!
Post-party, sit down with the birthday girl and browse through the runway shots from the party. Choose your faves and decorate the corners of them with Glitzy Girl Stickers - apply them as you print your digital photos from your home printer, so guests can take them home same-day as uber-glam party favors! Little tip: They look amazing in pink Sleepover Mini Frames! Or send your glitzed-up photos along with thank you notes.

Pump up the sparkle in the party room!
Glitzy Girls live for fashion - so why not transform your house into backstage at New York Fashion Week's famous Bryant Park?
Cover the wall with this Silver Table Roll to create a fashion show backstage atmosphere - it's just like being in the famous fashion tents. Get the birthday girl to cut out pictures from her favorite fashion magazines. Then plaster those magazine cut-outs all over the fabric walls (or use Sticky Tack if you're applying pics directly to the walls). From fashion to beauty shots, it's an easy and budget-friendly way to create a fashion-show atmosphere in your party room. Create fashion show prep areas filled with beauty products like Butterfly Make-up Kits and Glitzy Girl Lip Gloss. Both can do double duty as party favors!
Make the other half of the room the catwalk. Lay the Red Tablecover Roll, down the center of the room, then set chairs on either side. Voila! Instant catwalk.
Pink, purple, and silver, oh my!
What goes best with pink and purple? (Other than everything your little girl owns, of course.) Silver. Silver makes a beautiful metallic complement to the Glitzy Girl color scheme. Tie Pink Round Balloons and Silver Star Balloons to the backs of your cake-table chairs. (Bonus: This idea also creates a fun way to easily split the group later on for activities like the runway show below in Party Game & Activities Ideas; ask all the glitzy girls to grab their balloons, and group them by pink and silver.) Or drape each chair with a Glitzy Girl Feather Boa. Put Silver Star Balloons on the food table as well; weight them down with this Hot Pink Party Hat Balloon Weight. We love the pop of fuschia against the silver.

Keep it on ice to glam up your party food table
For drinks, self-serve done the a-list way can make all the difference. Putting your party beverages on ice in clear serving dishes is a surprisingly simple way to add sparkle! Serve drinks like apple juice and soda on ice in glammed-up Large Punch Bowls for a gorgeous way to keep them chilled.
Tape a Disco Ball Balloon to the bowl, letting it float way above to show guests where the beverages are.
Wrap the table and the bowl with a Glitzy Girl Feather Boa to add lux details, suggests party planning pro Tania Perez of Circle The Day Event Planning and Design.
