Sailor Sadie in a 2 piece is a designer favorite for sure.
For as long as I can remember, childrenswear has meant sparkly pink T-shirts and frilly dresses for girls, sporty hoodies and blue jeans for boys. For style-conscious parents looking for something a little less, well, cute that would still appeal to the under set, options were few and far between. But then, in recent years, a couple funny things happened: Now, not only do parents have the choice of mass brands like Gap Kids, J.
Looking for a unisex wardrobe for your gender-nonconforming tween? Of course, not all of this comes cheap—smaller-batch production and higher-quality materials mean higher prices, generally speaking—but for those who can afford it, a greater range of options is always welcome.
This Californian brand which just got picked up by Barneys proves that modern, minimal clothing can still sometimes be bright pink. Plus, a "Star Wars"-inspired hoodie that looks sleeker than most of the things in our closet? If you have some cash to spare, it really doesn't get cooler than Seattle-based Même.
Parents log on and fill out a short questionnaire about each of their kids—their color preferences, likes and dislikes yes to bows, no to zippers, for instance—and the company sends eight to 12 items, four times per year. Outfits, various prices; at Rockets of Awesome. Give yourself a week for proper layering and drying. My daughter turned 13 on Halloween so the weekend before we had her party.
We had a homemade bonfire and went around the circle having everyone add 30sec to a ghost story that I started. It was funny, scary and adventurous all together. Then we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. We then tied balloons to each others ankles and they had to pop the others before theirs got pop a few balloons had a dollar in it. Her friends talked about it all year and now she wants to do the same thing this year…..
We are happy to do it again since it was a very cheap and entertaining birthday party. The party will be cheap be tons of fun!!!!
Game Parties are high energy, cheap and always fun. Search the internet for game ideas. Inexpensive snacks and a take home treat of a balloon that was used for decoration, a Dollar Store notebook and cute pen — a fun day! I always make some sort of photo back drop take a group photo and that becomes the thank you note. She had so much fun we took all of her friends and it was sooo inexpensive all you waant to do is make a reservation before hand.
But after we went to laser tag we took some of her girlfriends to get their nails done and let them spend the night.. These are all such great ideas!! I have done a cooking birthday party where they decorated pizzas and cupcakes, had make your own sundae bar and decorated aprons that we bought cheap from Hobby Lobby or a craft store.
We had a spa party with stations… a hairdresser friend doing hair, a friend doing make-up, a nail station, a make your own craft hair pretty station where they hot glue gun flowers and stuff on clips and headbands the take home gift. All the girls wore a fancy dress to the party.
A favorite 12 year old party was at the mall where I made a scavenger hunt. They did the items and we met back to have Dairy Queen Birthday cake that they held for us in the foodcourt and compare pics. I have the most fun party ever!
You can take PVC and fabric to set up a makeshift tent in the living room. You can put air mattresses on the floor. Surprisingly if you invite some girls over for pizza, cake, and a movie the girls will make most of the fun themselves! I am getting ready to throw my neice a birthday party, she will be turning The girls will start the party by making their own dessert, then they will go into the freezer and they can either have them as the last part of the party, or can take them home with them.
I also look for discounted paper products at Target, Dollar Tree and party stores, that can be used for many different themes. I am a tween myself and for my 12th birthday i had a Paramore themed birthday party.
Not all girls are giry. If your daughter is a rocker chic this is the best party for her. You can buy dollar store table cloths and cups, plates, etc. For activities they can play pretend concert: Buy cheap inflatable microphones and guitars that they can keep and have each one of her friends take turns being bandmembers and for the drumset use tables and chairs and chopsticks as drum sticks.
They can make collages with pictures you can print out and markers. And they can also make their very own music videos and put it on a disc for each one to take home. For the cake make it yourself!
For favors give each girl a bottle of nail polish, some other little girly cosmedics. I got a bunch of lotions, body splash, some cute flower hairclips, and nail polish. Then I got a big bunch of cute little baskets also from Dollar Tree: You could do a hotel party.
Get a room at a local hotel with a pool. Let the girls swim and get super tired , feed them, take nail polish you probably already have on hand, and fix their hair while their nails dry. Most hotels have a breakfast of some kind, so that is one less expense. BEST part of all of that…. I save colored comic paper from Sunday newspapers and that is what I use for wrap. I use the dollar store for balloons. You could pick her up from school carrying birthday balloons one per year …that is super fun.
You could create a sign in paper with butcher paper and have all of her friends make a personal message for her on it. Use your neighbors for Scavenger hunts. Spa at home is a memorable and inexpensive way to celebrate. One idea I saw that was cute is the take away gift was a tiny live plant in a tiny plant box…They took a larger plant, cut it down and planted it.
The best birthday party I ever had was around 12 or My parents borrowed a 2 room tent like you camp out with and I had my friends sleep over. They had given me a cassette player showing my age that had a microphone and we recorded ourselves singing to Whitney Houston all night.
It was so much fun and probably cost very little. My friends still talk about it. We did that once for my 11th birthday except without the karaoke and singing! It was so much fun! We also had glow stuff to use! We just had a rock star party for my 9 yr old. Eight girls were occupied playing Wii most of the time. When they arrived they could dress up with sequined scarves just cut up sequined fabric from Joanns and gems stickers, necklaces and bracelets that they could keep after their photo session.
We also had inflatable microphones that they could play with then take home. Food was pizza, etc. We did have a small arts and crafts project but older girls mostly will occupy themselves. You can purchase balloons at The Dollar Tree. Here are a few money saving ideas I have used in many parties in my life time that I use now for my kids 1.
Go to Chuck E Cheese games are cheap the kids run around like crazy and if you just walk in it tends to be cheaper.
Give each child a disposable camera as they walk in to take pictures. It is amazing the many different angles the kids capture events. Definatly bake your own goodies and at the age of 12 the girls could do a lot of the work themselves. Have them make different elements of the cake. When it all come together they will be proud!
Keeps them all involved and the birthday girl the center of it all. Another wat cute idea. Have your husband yourself and any brothers, dress up as servents. White shirt n tie, an apron and towel on arm and serve the girls. But really play the part and make the girls feel like they are the ones who get to rule! Maybe go thru it with your daughter before hand so she doesnt become abusive: For cheap balloons and other decor, check out the Dollar Tree.
This is also great for party favors. You could also check out group rates for zoos and museums. Many offer free admission on some afternoons! And, most zoos allow picnics. Not all consultants do this, but it is worth a shot to look up one in your area. Oh and could you follow me I like your ideas , just look for Brooklyn Rose. Look at that both of our names are brook! I would suggest for your daughter to have a slumber birthday party, with girls only including her, have order Pizza, have snacks and all the girly movies for kids that age.
All you have to do is clean the house gather movies, her friends can also bring their fav girl movies from home that way you save on buying movies. Buy Pizza and snacks and drinks soda or juice and Balloons and decorate her room or where ever the girls will be having their slumber party. Let me know if you like it. All the best to you and Happy Birthday to your Daughter. First you have to decided the theme.
