Birthday Party Fun

An adorable girl I know just celebrated 
her 8th birthday!
Her talented Mom put together a real cute 
party and I wanted to share some 
pictures from it!
This is Emma and her mom Julie

As her guests arrived this festive wreath
 greeted them at the door!

Coming up the stairs they were further 
greeted with a cute balloon arrangement- 
Does this say "Girl" or what!! I love it!

Custom designed take home bags with the 
initial of each guest!  How fun!

A couple of towers of red velvet cupcakes 
await them!  Love those fun cupcake
wrappers she found at Michaels!

 Adorable treats like these chocolate
dipped oreos too!

 Some healthier snack foods were included!

Emma and her Mom custom wrapped
water bottles and as you can see Emma
loves American Girl!  

I love how she used such a great variety
of colors and patterns to decorate with!
Isn't the flag banner a great touch!
Love the polka dot napkins and plates!
See the layered colored strands of beads in 
the tall cylinder vases topped
with pinwheels!  I love it!

Now the fun part! It rained
on the day of the party so they
struggled with how they were going
to have the pinata broken open inside
their home.  

 A brilliant idea came into play!
They poked holes and put twine 
through it.

They all grabbed a piece and
pulled at the same time to 
break it open!
What a great idea!  

Happy Birthday Emma!

Julie has a blog too and she graciously
allowed me to copy and post about
this party.
