After school, she wanted to go to her high school's football game. I said okay. Then she says, after that I want to go with my friends to the Reo (local diner near school) Sadly I use to go there back in the day after a night out dancing. Wow.....how the wheel turns.
So at about 11p.m. she came home with a few friends and I surprised her with a little set up since the friends were sleeping over that night too.
The dining room is already set up for Halloween season, however me being me.....I've already made some adjustments from my last post. lol
I changed out the centerpiece on the table and added large glass apothecary jar(without top) added my black twigs (discovered by my son @ park) and some cute little creepy spiders.
At each seat I placed a square white plate with a gift bag on top for the girls
Close up of centerpiece...vase,twigs,painted pumpkin, painted candleholder, dollar tree skull, purple candy
Gift bags at each place setting. Black/purple were the colors
Some updating to the buffet...added gray gauze to lampshade with a little friend.
Some of the gift bag stuff: book, pencil, body spray, burlap bag and purple dark chocolate Hershey kisses in tulle with purple clothespin
She requested Strawberry shortcake for a cake, so I decided to give them each their own. She got frosted in the face (its a tradition in our family.....you must get smooshed with cake in the face on your bday)
Blowing out her "16" candles...
Friends who came to celebrate with her: Zulena, Vanessa & James
Her little sis Adelina....obviously excited with the treat
Gabriella and her crew.....her little bro Xander made an appearance for sweets.
Let's see what next year will be....she turns 17 and will be eligible for her driver's license ( ahhhhhhhhhhhh)
