Here is the birthday girl on her last night as an 11 year old.
The crepe paper wall was a great way to add lots of color while not spending a lot of money. (When doing this party it is best to save your money for candy....it is EXPENSIVE!)!
Lollipops...I made mine out of pvc pipe, balloons (wish they would have been a little rounder), a plastic bag such as you would place over a gift basket, and ribbon.
The taffy skewers and dum dum tree both added lots of color!
The cake was specially requested by Claremarie. It was a great fit for the theme and a big hit with the girls but it did have a lot of candy on it. We modified it for the family party where there were more adults than kids. Here is where I found the directions for this cake.
I was a little worried that this idea might be a little young for 12 year olds but that fear quickly subsided when I heard the squeals, and yes I do mean squeals, of delight when the girls saw the candy buffet.
Between supper at The Genji House, minute to win it games, karaoke, and the candy buffet I think Claremarie and her friends had a fun evening and a hopefully a great memory was made.
