Nancy Drew birthday party

Over the last few weeks, we've had Emma's 18th birthday, my birthday, our 24th wedding anniversary and a slew of graduation events.
This week we are celebrating Emma's official commencement graduation ceremony from high school, my parent's 50th wedding anniversary and I'm hosting a Nancy Drew themed birthday party for Josie's upcoming 10th birthday. 
Yes, I'm officially crazy.  Yes, I've been burning the midnight oil trying to squeeze everything in while also working.
Back in March, during National Reading month, Josie was asked to dress up as a favorite  book character and she enjoyed being Nancy Drew.
When she asked to have a Nancy Drew Mystery birthday party, I was thrilled.
Josie's guests will receiving detective kits to help solve the case of Josie's missing birthday present.
Most of the party supplies came from the Dollar Tree and with the help of Google images and a load of glue sticks, I came up with some fun mystery decorations.
Josie's party is being held Friday night and I'll try and do a follow-up post that includes the mystery and the clues.  
And I promise I will get back to visiting blogs again once I get through Emma's graduation open house.  Until then, I'm riding the crazy train!  Be well, friends!

I'm just glad to hear that kids still read Nancy Drew! I had no idea. I'd like to have a Nancy Drew birthday party myself! Maybe for my 75th.

Nancy Drew is one of my idols! I have been a serious collector for forever! Two ladies, Jennifer Fisher and Jennifer White are Nancy Drew experts. One of them holds an annual Halloween party that is amazing and its Nancy themed. You must google them!!I can't wait to see photos of Josie's party. How awesome! btw my favorite is The Hidden Staircase!
