A Diva Birthday

Youngest decided she wanted to visit Hollywood for her ninth birthday!

This did not seem like an outrageous request to Middlest, 
my party planner extraordinaire.
She immediately set to work 
to make her little sister's Hollywood dreams come true.

Just in case you were wondering... she wants to be a wedding planner when she is older.

First an exclusive Red Carpet invitation was sent out.
It asked their people to call our people.

Much to our delight they accepted.
I was a little nervous when they came to the door,
but I have come to the conclusion,
that celebrities are just ordinary people, 
who pull off wearing sunglasses on cloudy days... with pinache!

Youngest was able to show everyone the Red Carptet ropes, 
and a video of their red carpet saunter was videotaped for prosperity.

It wouldn't be a Hollywood party without the paparazzi!
And these Divas knew how to strut their stuff.

You could tell they were professionals and did this all the time.

We had movie stars.

And the music industry was well represented.... with Lady Ra Ra

and Jayz E

There was Royalty there too.
A Princess with turquoise eyes.. oh my.

Charades with a movie theme was far more popular than I was expecting.
I should have known.
Those actor types... they love their stage.

And for the crafty ones? 
After decorating their loot bags, they participated in magazine glamour makeovers.
This was created with Sharpie markers, 
as they drew onto magazine cover girls to make them even more glamorous.
The Agronomist was the judge and found it hard to choose a winner.

And the cupcakes?

They were the star of the afternoon.

Youngest  made a few wishes.... and a few candles were left burning.
There may be an exclusive with PEOPLE as to who or what this might mean.

The cupcakes were eaten.

And the loot bags from the Swag area were filled with...

wonderfully glamourous treats.
Perfect for any Diva in your life.

It was a fun afternoon, and I have to say,
I've decided celebrities as a group are a wonderfully fun bunch.

Only one more birthday party to go.
And I'm thinking, we might just have to bake a cake,
or better yet, a Sundae bar,
because honestly,
I'm not sure if I can look at one. more. cup. or. cake.

In fact, it might just send me over the edge...
