Funky Fashion Show -10yr- Vogue Cover Invite
Leilani in Covina, California, USA
Funky Fashion Show For my daughters 10th birthday we held a fashion show with her as the main model. Each girl was sent a "Mini Vogue" magazine cover with a short article about an upcoming fashion event…naming all of the models - them! Included was 4 tickets to the event for their family members. (Each girl was asked to bring 2 outfits & arrive 3 hours early)
We set up 2 adjoining easy-up canopies in the back yard & my husband built a 3 ft by 15 ft & 3" high runway starting out of the center of the canopy. We decorated the runway with glitter & set up chairs around. We also rented some show lightes.
Inside we set up 6 stations -
Nails (they were able to choose from a variety of wild colors or press on nails)
Hair (with a basket full of different hair accessories, falls, clip ons)
Make-up (everything you could imagine)
Wardrobe/Accessories (one of my girlfriends went over their wardrobe with them and suggested wild accessories)
Music (each girl got to listen to music selections & pick their favorite)
Modeling Tips (they were given tips on how to walk the red carpet!)
Upon arrival, each girl was given a white robe with their names written with glitter on the back & escorted to a station. While at their stations they were chit chatting, we were taking pictures, serving them sparkling cider, finger sandwiches, munchies and their favorite - chocolate dipped strawberries. We were able to do a quick dress rehearsal just before guests arrived.
Guests were greeted by "paparazzi"(my husband & friends) - they were treated to a finger food buffet & beverages. The show lights twinkled & we hit the boom box. I was the "MC" - introduced each model & spoke a little bit about their outfit. I really hammed it up. The girls looked great! For the finale we brought all girls out…my daughter front & center..everybody sang happy birthday & she blew out her candles on the runway!
The party continued for about an hour and a half…lots of dancing.
My daughter was on cloud 9 all week…and her friends & family kept telling me what a great time they had. As a thank you gift…each girl was sent a "mini vogue" magazine with her on the cover & photos of the event inside. (something I put together on my computer…it was fairly easy!)
This was a very inexpensive party..most of the station supplies & decorations were purchased at the $1 store, the robes were purchased on-line $3.50 ea, the lights were only $20 to rent & the finger foods weren't very costly. (Everything else we had laying around in the garage.)
