We hosted a large group of princesses this weekend. Disney princesses, that is...
When Ruth Allum comes with her Gals' Getaway for Oakhurst Farm in Ashton, the action never stops. She's one of the most creative event planners we know, and her ladies are kept busy and laughing throughout. The weekend started early, with massages provided on site by the Organic Boutique Spa . (They are returning on Sunday morning to lead the ladies through some yoga, too!) In between, there are scheduled shopping trips to local stores to top up their Christmas lists, and a scavenger hunt that must be completed prior to arrival -- and which often involves photos of the team members with the scavenger hunt item
that they have rustled up.
This year's theme was the Disney Princesses. And they didn't disappoint. We kept finding these famous characters scattered about the place. And if you've missed any of the Disney princess movies, this would have been the perfect
chance to catch up, since Ruth had ALL the movies running in a Princess Marathon. It went well with the bling and the tiaras.
We met up with Cinderella at the entrance, with the pinata.
Snow White was chilling in the living room, by the fire, enjoying the view to the lake. Probably nicer than the view from her drafty castle with Prince Charming...
Pocohontas showed up in the kitchen, helping Ruth get the snacks ready.
And even Malificient got to make an appearance, although, as was pointed out she is NOT an official Disney princess. Far from it... None the less, she had the best hair!!!
Merida was hanging out with Cinderella by the stairs... While Ariel and her team-mates posed for us by the library!
Even a Princess needs to get outside for some air and exercise -- the tiara went to the Mountain Lookout. (and what Disney movie is complete without a great dog, or horse, or other critter??? Taffy came along to represent the Disney animals)
The girls had fully mastered the official "Disney Point", as well.
This group knows how to make their own cheer and have a whale of a time together. There are team competitions involving quizzes, board games, and crafts, and the place rings with laughter while they are here.
So here is OUR shout out cheer to the Gals from Oakhurst Farm! You rock, one and all!
