The Rest of the Story:
1: Oh, what a wonderful time to be a little girl in Polson. It's spring time and almost time for Princess Bella's annual party for the young girls in town. Now, she isn't really a princess but with all her money, the townfolk guess she can call herself a princess if she wants too....giggle.. And sure she's a touch eccentric but again...what does it hurt. And she's always so good to all the little ones in the town. They think she enjoys the parties more than the children do. It's always the highlight of spring and is a grandiose affair, and this year is to be no exception. There will be a doll hospital for any sick dolls, a doll seamstress to do any needed mending or perhaps a whole new frock, a doll hairdresser to repair damage to the curls, a portrait booth, lots of prizes, a wonderful teaparty with the most wonderful delicacies. In addition, this year, one lucky little girl will win a beautiful handmade outfit for herself and a matching one for her doll.
2: All the little girls are excited and awaiting the special pink sparkly envelope to come in the mail. Princess Bella is all in a twirl also trying to get everything set up for the festivities. Cakes and cookies have been baked and are being decorated, tablecloths have been washed and hung out in the sunshine to dry, all the little chairs have received a fresh coat of pink paint, the flowers for flower crowns have been sorted, and gallons of lemonade has been made.
3: But wait!! Oh no!! Princess Bella can't believe her eyes when she goes out to give one last look over to the tables. The tablecloths are all on, the flowers in little pots are there, the place settings with a crown cookie at each setting just as ordered. But something terrible is amiss. Where is the pizazz, the oooomph, the Oooooh-Ahhhhh, the something special? It's all missing. This just won't work, she moans.
4: Princess Bella has gotten herself worked up into a fine state of distress moaning and pacing and wondering how she will be able to salvage this party in such a short time; the girls will be arriving in just a few hours. She rushes around asking everyone to start making calls to anyone and everyone they can think of to find some WOW to add, some BLING to sparkle, something to make this party POP!! Luckily for Princess Bella; the seamstress just happens to know of a bunch of ladies, 42,000 in fact that kinda specialize in bling and wow. She tells her to dial up the Teapotters and surely they will be able to get her out of this predicament.
5: So Teapotters', that's our assignment. We've been called upon to bring some much needed WOW to this doll party.
Bring cards with wow, pizazz, bling to the max and pink as well. We need to brighten up this party. No bling? = the back door for you...
