I styled this Pretty in Pink Fourteenth Birthday Party for my daughter Audrey. She wanted a small evening out with some of her closest friend but the party planner in me was able to convince her to do birthday cake and a movie back at our house. She wanted something fun and trendy yet classy and clean all at the same time. We agreed on a light pink watercolor theme and carried that throughout the decor, invitation and printables.
The party took place on our outside patio which we filled with balloons and pink honeycomb balls in all sizes. We hung a happy birthday banner from the fireplace and rolled blankets up for the girls to use during the movie later that night. To greet the girl at the front door we hung a celebrate balloon banner.
The dessert table was filled with all pale pink desserts. Sweet and Saucy Shop created the most beautiful pink striped water color cake to match the invitation. The rest of the desserts included cake pops, macarons, mini donuts, meringues, and chocolate dipped krispy treats. In the center of the dessert table were custom sugar cookies that looked as good as they tasted. I think sugar cookies are a great way to really personalize the dessert table to the guest of honor. Also on the dessert table was a small pink ruffled smash cake, a tradition that our family has carried on since Audrey turned one. For the backdrop of the dessert table, I just used two rows of tissue tassel which are are quick and easy but make a huge statement.
After the girls got back from dinner they sat by the fire and enjoyed the movie. Audrey loved celebrate her birthday with her closest friends! For party favors, each girl took a home a planner for 2016 with a tag that read “to good times ahead.” I hope this year is filled with many more good time for my sweet girl!
