Some Enchanted Evening
I’m turning sixteen next month. But, because of a lot of different circumstances, I decided to have my birthday party in August instead. So last night I celebrated my “Sweet Sixteen” with seventeen of my closest friends. It was absolutely enchanting–we decorated my friend’s house like an outside wonderland with lights and lanterns. Everyone dressed up and (I hope!) had a wonderful time. 🙂
These were the raspberry filled cupcakes I made for dessert. I thought they were so cute! It seems that everytime I bake something that turns out I have to blog about it, lol. 🙂
One idea I had was to create a photo-booth area out of a sheet. We all got our photos taken as guests were arriving. It was a lot of fun–think lots of jumping and laughing.
One game we played involved dividing up the guests and giving each team fifteen minutes to put together an outfit out of a bag of crazy stuff. Everyone was so creative–I was shocked!
In the end, it was a magical evening, and one that I will always remember. A big thank you to everyone who helped me put it together–My mom, sisters, Mrs. Janet and her grandaughter Victoria–all who worked tirelessly and showed true servants hearts. 🙂
Thanks to everyone who came! I encourage you to comment once you’ve seen the photos, so I know everyone’s seen them. I love you all! ❤
