Party Time

The Big Day Arrived…

Destiny’s Big Day

I am so glad that my sweet girl was able to have a celebration for her sweet 16! She was delightful and a bit eager. The party got off to a late start but started nonetheless. There were so many moving parts. Organization and proper help is key. I absolutely love throwing parties but, I appreciate a few good helping hands. My sister-in-law and her amazing friend were God sent. Thank you ladies. I’m certain that I couldn’t have done it without you both.

The balloons were both beautiful and disastrous! LOL!!! WHEW!!! I appreciate the talented creators of the beautiful spectacular balloon artistry and the experts in business for themselves. You are geniuses! My attempt to DIY was an experience! I did an okay job on my own trying to create beautiful balloon displays for the party. However, the wind and sun had other plans for my decor. Again slightly disastrous. I definitely learned a lot. I will never say that I won’t try balloon art on my own again, but if I can afford to hire an expert, I will! Especially for outdoor events.

The CAKE!!! Designed by both the BIRTHDAY GIRL and mom. The flowers and butterflies were Destiny’s preference. We stopped by Hobby Lobby for silk flowers and butterflies to deliver to the bakery for proper placement. There were also macaroons and edible flowers. This is the cake before the cake toppers were added…

I had 3 containers just like this one at the drink table. As well as a large pitcher of Lemon infused water. I found this exact dispenser at Target
