...brooke's glamour party...

so our busy weekend turned out to be lots of fun!! but i'm not kidding when i say it was busy. we went non-stop from thursday afternoon till saturday night. i'll post pictures from the shower later, as for now, here's a few highlights from the birthday party...

the birthday girl, whose birthday is actually today...happy birthday brooke!!


the cake and favor bags...


my friend britnee did a great job on the flowers...i especially loved the little crown she made...such a cute accent! and the "b"...incase any of you are wondering...i bought it at a scrapbook store for like $2...and then painted it black and mod podged some paper onto it. it was so easy & cheap...and made a cute little centerpiece.


i love tulle. it is one of the easiest and most forgiving things to use when decorating or wrapping a gift. i say forgiving because your bows don't have to be perfect...and it still looks cute. also, zurchers is a great place to find tulle in a variety of colors for a decent price.


we made these little cakes for the girls to go home with...brynn, my sister actually gets the credit for these. they turned out so cute...and of course the little girls loved them! i'll have to post instructions on how to make them later...you'll all be surprised at how easy they really are.



we set up a little beauty bar and did the girls nails, hair, and makeup...they kept saying over and over, "this is sooo fun! oh, i love this! i don't want to take my hair off ever!" hearing that, made all the craziness worth it...



drinks, popcorn, and candy for the movie...



so there you have it...brooke's glamour party! now we're off to have dinner and celebrate her actual birthday tonight!! :)

Ok. Seriously? Are you for real? You could totally host your own TV show. Crafts, cakes, decorating, etc. etc. etc. You're amazing!

What a cute party! I'll have to copy that idea for Marley some day. Love it.

AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BROOKE!

Could I hire you for Leighton's first birthday?! You should seriously start charging people for this kind of stuff. Love it.

Okay Lyndsie, have you started your own party/shower decor business yet? You could make some nice extra dough with your skills and people would love everything you do. The birthday and shower are sooo cute! Martha would be proud.
