Giggles & Glitter Spa Party

I posted not that long ago about Mason’s eighth birthdayparty, so I wanted to follow that post up with a more detailed one. I couldn’t resist, being that it was possibly the cutest little girl party ever! I can’t take the credit for that though, it has to go to Jessica and Jordan with Giggles & Glitter.
Giggles & Glitter has two locations. The original in Nevada, and it looks like a second one in Southern California. Basically, they come to your house, and bring just about everything you need for your child’s party. They have several different themes to choose from, including princesses, fashion show, and even a pirate theme for the boys! We chose the spa theme, and Mason had her girlfriends show up in their jammies.  Giggles & Glitter brought a gorgeous tablescape, complete with linens, centerpieces, and individual manicure stations. The also provided a hair station, glitter lotion craft station, and the best part, the pedicure station! The threw some super cute blankets on one of our sofas, and had foot spas for the girls. Could you just die? The only things we had to be responsible for were invitations, food, and favors! So easy, right? They show up an hour before your party begins to set everything up, and then they basically run the whole show, so you can play hostess and just enjoy your child’s party! It doesn’t get much better than that!
We just set out the food so the girls could snack all through the party whenever there was downtime. Mason is a SUPER picky eater, and I wanted the food to be stuff she liked, so we went really simple. I did a veggie tray, lots of fruits, finger sandwiches, tortilla roll ups, along with pretzels and goldfish. Instead of cake, Mason wanted a waffle bar. Hubs to the rescue! Eric whipped up a few different kinds of waffles for the girls, with lots of toppings to choose from.

G and G’s party ran pretty smoothly, especially considering we had 12 girls (and about 5 parents!). Each girl got to put on a cute spa cover up, then we started with all the girls around the dining table for manis, facials, and makeup! Kind of a tight squeeze, but the girls didn’t mind!


After the first station, some kids escaped to the backyard to play, which was fine, and others stayed inside to take advantage of the hair styling and pedicures. Jessica whipped the girls hair into amazing  styles complete with glitter! AND each girl got to take their hairbrush home with them!

The pedicure station was a huge hit! Three girls at a time were able to have their toes done by Jordan, and others waited their turn and read magazines. This might have been the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!    


I brought out Mason’s bead collection so any girls that didn’t want to partake in these activites would have something else to do. Luckily it was a beautiful day in Vegas and we were able to open the back doors and take advantage of the sunshine in the backyard!


After everyone had their hair and toes done, they got to make their own glitter lotion and decorate the bottle!

After an adorable group photo, Jessica and Jordan started packing up their stuff, and it was waffle time! I actually think this was the kids favorite part of the whole party! I love that Mason wanted to do this instead of cake. We had regular, chocolate, and cinnamon roll waffles, with maple syrup, icing, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and sprinkles for the girls to build their perfect waffle. Everyone sang Happy Birthday, grabbed their ice cream (Blue Bell of course), and headed outside to chow down!

While everyone was eating  the Giggles & Glitter ladies to finished  packing up their things and headed out! I just need to rave about them one more time. Jessica and Jordan were so wonderful. They were so sweet to all the girls, did an AMAZING job, and once they were gone you couldn’t even tell they had ever been there. I am so impressed with this company, and all the other moms that stayed for the party were as well. In fact, one mom is already planning to schedule her daughter’s party with them! They really took the stress of party planning off of me, so that I could enjoy the party as it was happening. What a gift to be able to see the joy on my little girl’s face, instead of running around trying to take care of everything. Thank you Giggles & Glitter for making Mason’s birthday party such an enormous success!
