City of Hope

"Hope" is my theme tonight.  I just bundled up a "Princess Party in a Box" and sent it to my friend, who is managing a fashion show and auction to raise money for City of Hope, a charity she has been deeply involved with most of her life.

1)  I hope one of the generous women who will attend the event with the intention of bidding on something will consider my Princess Party.

2)  Even more, I hope the little girl who will be the guest of honor will love the princesses and have a grand, memorable party. 

3)  Further still, I hope she will love coloring the pictures in her Jumbo Book for Girls, and that her guests will enjoy coloring the four small princess pictures in their mini-book party favors. 

4)  I hope everyone will enjoy their princess book marks, and will be excited to choose a new book to read, so they will have a place to mark with their new do-it-yourself princess book mark.  (The princess on the book mark is holding her own book, of course!)

Included with the "party in a box," just for fun, are two dozen fancy Princess Print cupcake wraps by Bella Cupcake Couture, the brainchild of Carrie Middlemiss, who recently won a prestigious award from Martha Stewart for entrepreneurs.  Also included:  beautiful sparkly ribbon to thread through the book marks, glitter glue and colored pencils.  If I were going to a party, I would love to color princesses and glam them up with glitter and ribbon.  Now that I'm a grown-up, I love providing the princesses!
