Another happy belly henna

This was a wonderful choice for the henna design. She had found it on the internet and loved it. I did most of the design, and then did some of the guests, then finished the belly. Beautiful.

Birthday Again!

I did henna at a birthday party last year for this girl, and she had me come back again this year for more. This time, less people to henna, but more intricate ones for the birthday girl and two others.

Fun Party

Another birthday party for a group of girls....

Saturday, May 30, 2009

This wedding henna party was so much fun! Shrim had booked me months in advance for this event. Megan and I hennaed all of these wonderful women in a few hours. Shrim had her hands and feet done. Her mom and sister had both of their hands done as well. It was great to have them all picking out elaborate ones, and one who hadn't been hennaed since her wedding many years ago. I was honored!

Belly Henna for Aliza

I had the opportunity to henna this beautiful belly this morning. The baby kept moving and I am hoping she is enjoying her new colored view of the world. It looked great and I can't wait to see it in a few days! and will add some glitter to it then.

gecko girls, with beautiful designs

These three were about to go south to a wonderful island in a week, so they chose to each have a gecko on one hand, in addition to their beautiful designs! I added blue glitter to all of the designs. (click on the above photo to see it closer)

Disney bound...

This group was off to Disney the next week. I added a little Mickey Mouse head to each of the designs, and if you hunt, you will see them. Try to find the little Mickeys!

dress inspired

This girl's hands and dress were beautiful. I worked from a part of the design in her dress to create her henna.

This was at a birthday party and there were so many girls getting henna! I think I counted 17 hennas that I did.

surprise sweet 16 henna

The birthday girl had NO IDEA I was coming. And I did not know that it was a surprise. So when I got out of the car to see several girls outside of the house, and said that I was the henna artist... she was so excited!!!
I was there for hours and had fun doing so much henna on so many girls, many of whom are into gymnastics, so they had fabulous bodies, and wanted beautiful things to flaunt :)

Bollywood birthday party....

A fabulously themed party by a creative mom for her daughter. She found a woman to buy sarees from for a really good price, got the girls bangles, and bought throw pillows and more. She got great bargains, and the girls all had so much fun. They had a great tent set up with so many beautiful silks.

a great bollywood birthday party:

women on Vinalhaven

so much fun, and we will have to be doing it again sometime this fall!
They picked fun things, and really individual.
I did hear though that some of them went swimming in the quarry shortly afterwards though! (completely disregarding the fact that you should, a) leave the henna on for 4-6 hours, and b) that you should avoid water on it for at least that long if not much longer!)
I will just have to go back and henna them all again this fall!

girls afternoon

Very fun gathering of women! They all had their nails done and then gathered to get henna. The woman in the middle is the bride.

This one was my favorite.....

A very different pre wedding event than the one in Greenwich... very low key, with margaritas and great munchies!

punjabi wedding

I was lucky enough to do henna at a pre-wedding event in Greenwich for about 500 guests. It was beautiful with so many incredible sarees, fabulous music and dance performances. I hennaed with Carrie and Kayan for 3 1/2 hours.

(these were taken before the event started, as they were setting up. The bride is the one in the gorgeous red saree)
