OK! This year, I played it cool, let her see some ideas online, and she agreed! Her only rule? She wanted a pinata. Deal!
It was just what I imagine a kid’s party should be: friends and family, lots of laughing, talking and a homemade cake…..Which you let your daughter and her friend ice, and it didn’t bother you at all. You didn’t even get high blood pressure watching them schmear it back and forth. (breaaattthhhhe slowly. In. And out.)
Seriously though, it was a really sweet party with lots of people we love. Here’s some pictures of some of the decor, and ideas we used to go with our theme.
|Carolynn’s friend, Kaia, chose “The Wicked Queen”. (Carolynn has changed into one of her gifts-a Moana dress.)|
|Carolynn chose, “Prince Charming” for her daddy. ❤|
I turned this mirror, from Goodwill:
Into the, “Magic Mirror on the wall”:
Now, for the food. I had the party from 10-12, so we served light fare: small sandwiches, 7 layer dip and chips, and caramel apple dip with apple slices.
|Buy the cookie stamps here|
|I used cookie stamps to make the faces on the mini sandwiches. They were originally cut out in apple shapes (by my kids….breathe. breathe. it’s ok if it’s not perfect…)|
|The invitation said, “no gifts necessary”. No one listened. 🙂
Thanks again to everyone who came and loved on our beautiful, birthday girl! We are so blessed with our families and friends.
