Modern Teen Birthday

IMG_3432 Hi Everyone! I am so excited to finally share my daughter’s Sweet Thirteenth Birthday Party with you. Being a teenager, she had definite opinions about how she wanted to celebrate. She was insistent that she wanted a birthday party without a “theme. “ We came up with a pretty color scheme of lemon, apricot, pink and raspberry and incorporated them into a simple geometric pattern. We decorated with tons of balloons in all several different sizes and lots of honeycomb balls and pom poms.

The dessert table consisted of macaroons, cupcakes, sugar cookies and mini chocolate covered Oreos all in our color scheme.

A runner of honeycomb ball decorated the center of the dinner table and each place setting had a mini tube of confetti. After dinner the girl had planned on watching a movie so we set up two white sofas or the grass (thank goodness for slip covers), brought out a dozen fleece blankets from Ikea and filled a Sweet Treats Movie table with lots of fun concessions.

I used a cart from Ikea that I spray paint pink and gold to hold the party favors. The girls left with little treats in mini gable boxes that I made to match the invitation and confetti filled mini balloons.

My favorite part of the party has to be the mini banner with a photo of Audrey from each year of her life. Truly the sweetest thing!
