Pretty Party

So we had a little party today to celebrate my friend's stepdaughter's birthday.  We had a blast.  We decided to go with a monochromatic white color scheme, because we were so inspired by this party at resolved2worship.  It is so beautiful!  

So, onto our party.  The girls were all told to wear white and we tried to make the menu as "white" as possible.  Of course we quickly learned that most "white" foods are also full of sugar, but what's a party without a little sugar?  We sugared them up and sent them home with their parents. :)  Our menu included: powdered donuts (a favorite of the birthday girl), kettle corn, deviled eggs, homemade marshmallows, white chocolate covered strawberries, milk, and of course birthday cake-you can't have a party without cake.

our chandelier from pompom balls and paper lanterns (from Marshall's)


we draped sheets (from goodwill) across the top of the pergola for a dramatic tent like effect


Place cards and favors


I put my gumball machine outside too since it coordinated so well


Special chair for the birthday girl








 "M" is for Madison




yummy!


my homemade marshmallows, highly recommend these.  You can find the recipe here from Martha.






fancy yogurt, although the girls ended up scraping off all the whipped cream and sprinkles and leaving the yogurt


 passion fruit tea...


 and I got to use my $2 garage sale teacup




another guest of honor, Scarlett, isn't she adorable?  So polite with her paws crossed....







My friend coordinated a little craft/favor for the girls...


modeling their bows...










my new orchid fit in well with the color scheme, hopefully I can keep it alive


the cake was delicious, as you can see...


Happy birthday Madison!!  We had a great time celebrating with you!
