Hi! Happy Monday!
These past couple of weeks have been really busy for me because I have been secretly planning a Sweet 16 Surprise Party for my sister! Well.. it was this last Friday and turned out to be a success! She was totally surprised! I really wanted to do the party at my home in my backyard. The theme I chose was vintage, pastel colors. I handmade the fabric drop and the letters. I will show you later how I made them. Everything collaborated so nicely. The swing I already had, bought a year ago from Pier I Imports. Planning a party is one thing, but planning a surprise party for your sister is a whole other ballgame! It was a bit crazy and hectic at times, but everything pulled through. Got a bit emotional when she arrived, but that’s what happens.. We are sisters and she means the world to me!
The letters I bought from JoAnns Fabric store along with the yarn. I wrapped each letter. Its very time consuming but I did it all while watching a movie. Then simply added some silk flowers with hot glue.
I borrowed the glass candy jars from my friend Domnika. Filled them up with pretty candy and yogurt covered pretzels. And as each guest left I made sure they took the bag of sweets with them.
Whats a party without these sweet pastel macaroons! They were so tasty!
The same fabric was used to make flags! Thank you Domnika for making them for me!
