So I was debating what to blog about today when I remembered that I still have a whole folder of unpublished photos of Ruthie’s tenth birthday party two weeks ago on my computer! These are just too good to go unshared, so, without further ado, I present to you…. Coker Resort.
It takes a unique kid to want to celebrate her tenth birthday with a hotel-themed birthday party. Lucky us, too, because obviously every hotel needs staff (*ahem* servants) and obviously having two older sisters makes that a cinch. To help ease the pain, we invited over two of our favorite friends, Ellery and Lila. The four of us dressed up in our hotel-y-ish clothes and treated the guests to a full on spa experience. We gave them facials, painted their nails, and did their hair. Then we passed out menus and delivered them a fine meal. Later on in the evening, the girls sugared up on icecream sundaes and watched a few American Girl movies. And the next morning, before they left, we led the guests into the “lobby” and let them “buy” candy from the hotel’s candy lobby.
So how was a sleepover with nine giggling girls under eleven? Loud. Very, very loud. Loud from the moment they checked in at 3:30, to the bathroom break they took at 11 PM, to the wild dance party we led them in the next morning. But it was fun indeed, and I think everyone had quite a time at Coker Resort.
