End of Summer Get Together

The tween(can't call her that much longer!) hosted a few friends for an end of summer get together before school started.
She planned the menu of light fare: popcorn and fruit with Passion iced tea and Izze drinks.
As well as these scrumptious coconut cupcakes.
They were really the stars of the party.
The recipe is from Ina Garten,The Barefoot Contessa.
You can find it here.
 It was my our idea to toast the coconut for the cupcake tops.
Don'tcha like their snazzy zebra cupcake liners?
She's become quite the cupcake baker!
The girls were coming over to hang out, eat and enjoy the deck and hot tub.
She set the table up outside.
I also thought they would hang out around the fire pit and roast marshmallows and I had a mason jar/glow light project I wanted to try with them but we never got to it.
Another time...

I had to be sneaky to grab a few shots of the party.
But it looked like they were having fun!
