Okay, fellow Bachelorette junkies! (I know you’re out there.) A friend forwarded me pictures of “Little Ricki’s” 7th birthday party at Emily’s house here in Charlotte earlier this summer, and I knew you’d want to see. (No sign of “One-F” Jef. I guess he was still in hiding after the show wrapped.)
The theme was “glam camping” and was put together by the amazing design team of Anders Ruff. “Glam” would be accurate. I don’t have the heart to show this to my six-year-old, or else she might realize her Barbie cake and McDonald’s party wasn’t as spectacular as I told her it was. That, and she might start stalking Little Ricki for an invite to next year’s party :)
A little peek of her house. I tweeted Emily and asked if she would consider a house tour for the blog. (You know, since we’re both in Charlotte. And, our names our both Emily. And, we both thought Arie was incredibly handsome . . . ) Yeah, she didn’t respond.
And, if you thought the food spread was good, check out the party favors. They seriously rival a swag bag from the Oscars (almost). Or, maybe I’m the only one who sticks a bouncy ball, some stickers and Pixy Stix in a cup and calls it a day???
Each girl received matching pajamas (these cute custom ones--not the Little Mermaid ones from Target), handmade headbands, “Camp Ricki” water bottles and a flower cuff. Heck, I want to be friends with Little Ricki.
Here’s wishing Little Ricki a happy 7th birthday, and hoping we get to see pictures of your 8th!
