I had fun making the invitations. (I edited out my daughter's name. It didn't just say "E" :) )
The birthday girl all ready for her guests to arrive!
I, of course, had to make a cute little birthday banner. I made it with cardstock and used crepe paper for the ruffles. And I apologize for the crummy pictures. The party was in the evening, and I had planned to take good pictures before it got dark outside... but that didn't happen.
I set up a few pictures on our entry table and then the guests placed their presents there as they came in.
I took a cake decorating class in college, so I like to make cakes. For E's I decided to do an ombre look.
And decoration with the most effect was the pom pom chandelier. I made the pom poms myself and then hung them and the paper lanterns to the light chain. I loved the way it turned out!
The party was a huge success! E loved her cake, that she insisted on eating with a spoon.
She was having the time her life...
until, right after the guests had left, she fell and cut her eyebrow open. Luckily, she is fine. We took her to the doctor, and it was just a minor cut, but I told you the day had it's ups and downs.
