Miss High School turned 16 a few weeks ago (got her permit too!). We had fun putting together the decorations for her party that we held at a local restaurant with 30 or so of her closest friends.
We collected old looking bottles and she printed out labels for them, then used Mod Podge to adhere them to the bottles. I ordered black and white swirled lollipops from Oriental Trading Company. They looked great and the kids enjoyed them. Black and white paper straws and menus printed on red card stock were set at each place setting. The spider web doilies were from Michael's.
We used all different vases for the flowers and candle holders with different sized white candles. I had a few mirrors for the tables that reflected the tea lights and decorations.
She's collected quite a few composer busts from piano recitals and I've used them in my Halloween decor over the years. They were perfect on the tables with the spider web doilies.
To go with the hotel theme, she made these place cards out of vintage looking keys and tags.
The night started off kind of stormy and we even lost power right before we left for the party (luckily it wasn't out at the venue!). It all went with the theme.
The regal chair in the back of the room was great for photo ops.
The cake was red velvet with cream cheese filling and buttercream icing.
It was wrapped in black lace and had red icing roses on top. Simple and elegant!
I ordered the sparkler candles from Amazon. They were so dramatic and fun!
Let's Keep in Touch!
