last friday night we threw a surprise sweet 16 party for kira. it was a ton of work but such a fun experience. i couldn't have done it without both of our best friends' help! :) i didn't take any pics of the venue or details, so sad. thankfully her good friends were able to catch these pics for me :) i love them! dots cupcakes did all of the sweet treats. red velvet and toffee... kira's favorite flavors!
i couldn't resist the hello kitty napkins, doesn't she look like she's holding flags up? our kira is a flaggie at school, captain actually! ;) cake pops and macarons. heaven.
spam musubi, heart shaped! my sweet friend punched all those hearts out, amazing.
bit of decor. flowers in random jars, candles, frames of her and her friends everywhere.
and my favorite :) the photobooth! i cut out the garlands myself and had kira's friends put it up for me. i gave them my vision and they went to town. i love how it turned out!
what a rush.. planning and executing a party. between the 6 in our family- we have birthdays quite often, now for a little break until november...when the big guy above turns THIRTEEN!
