Ella's Dance Party!

I mean, BEST party ever!

We stayed up till 1am the night before puffing pom-pom balls, dipping mini apples and hanging silhouettes. This party could not have happened without the help of so many wonderful friends and family! (and of course it couldn't have been captured more beautifully without the amazing Brittany and her camera skills)

I love how the dancing silhouettes turned out! Go here for a how to.

Each guest went home with a c.d of some of Ella's fav dance tunes ranging from nsync to mama mia:)

If the kids wanted a break from dancing I had a table set up where they could trace their body striking a dance move and then decorate it.

Everything came together so great and all the kids had so much fun dancing. The dance floor and pa system that I rented form Spoil Me Rotten made the party. (and DJ Bob of course!)

How can you have a dance party without your very own mini flash mob?! Somehow I talked my sweet friends into doing this with me. Practicing the week before was all worth it, lots of good laughs! We took most of the moves from Just Dance on the Wii and mixed them together. At the beginning of the party Bob announced that the adults had a little surprise and thats when we busted out our cool dance moves. You can see it here.

Today I accidentally landed on your blog. I am a mom of 34 years and I have a daughter almost 6 years.

Ella's birthday party looked really great! Soon we organize a dance party for Valentine's sixth birthday. I hope it will also be so much fun!

The party was fantastic!! Seriously so perfect for kids that age. Too bad my boys just stood there while all the girls danced their hearts out. I have a feeling that won't change!! You are too cute and one of the most creative people I know. Please don't move!!!

Aidan and I didn't know Teacher Allison had such cool moves! You have the greatest ideas. I'm sorry I haven't made the time for blogs at all in a very long time. I am trying to get back to it and I have missed you and yours so MUCH!!!!! I haven't even seen a pic of baby McKenna since the day she was born. :-( She's beautiful and what a big girl Ella is becoming.
