Oh hey there random Family Friday post! I think I’ll just start surprising you with random Family Friday posts since I obviously can’t stick to a weekly routine! You never know if you’ll get one this week or next week or the next week or next month…LOL!
I had to share a few photos from Savanna’s 10th birthday party! This is the 5th year in a row that Savanna has had a costume party for her birthday and the 3rd year in a row that our outdoor party plans were rained out 🙁 This year Savanna decided to be Apple White, Snow White’s daughter, from Ever After High. It is always so fun to see everyone’s costumes! Once all the guests arrived they sat down for a pizza party under party lights in the living room! If you know me, you know I LOVE party lights and I had to use them!! After pizza, we made caramel and chocolate apples! This activity was a hit! I am so sad that I didn’t get photos of the apples and toppings before the party and more photos of the process! I was too busy trying to help dip and write names on the apple sticks!! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…It is really hard to be hostess, party organizer, AND photographer! Every year I swear I’ll hire a party planner so I can focus on capturing the party, but I just can’t do it! I like the planning too 🙂 After everyone had made two apples to take home, we played a few games and then sat down for craft time! They decorated wooden photo frames with ribbon and you guessed it…GLITTER!! I will forever be vacuuming up glitter! Oh well, they had fun and that’s all that matters! They also had fun playing the mummy wrap game for the 5th year in a row! You would think they would be tired of this game by now, but they still love it and they’ve become expert wrappers!! I should have taken a photo of the floor covered in white streamers after the game! After mummy wrap, it was time to cut the cake! Everyone was excited for birthday cake, but it is always sad to cut into the fabulous birthday cake from Geelicious Confections! Gloria with Geelicious Confections always does an amazing job!!
All of Savanna’s friends went home with smiles on their faces, sugar in their tummies, and treats to eat later 😉 I’d say that makes for a successful party!!
