Yep, 17! I still think of her like this...my little entertainer.
She's still my entertainer but also this lovely young lady (and still my baby). We had a busy month and I'm going to recap all of her birthday celebrations and happenings in one mega post.
First off, was her family party but it also fell on her junior class ring day. We started the day with a ring day mass followed by a luncheon at a local country club.
Meanwhile things were getting prepared for the party. Her cake request was this Flourless Chocolate Cake.
this recipe for Vegan Apple Crisp and it was a winner!
my(beloved) Ikea Raskog cart for the bar.
I found the felt ball garland on etsy. It's so fun, I'm leaving it on the cart permanently!
The calm before the storm..actually the party was pretty small and calm this year. We had the newly painted family room built-ins ready to reveal.Spicy Thai Noodles were made a day or two before and got better as they marinated. I had everything ready for the Vegan Caesar Salad and assembled it right before the party. We bought some party sized Stouffers Mac & Cheese too.
Buffalo Chickpea Dip (made ahead and baked right before the party) and always a big hit with our families.
Cake time and desserts. Happy Birthday #1.
Happy Birthday #2!her room and served as a photo backdrop and decoration.
this party and
More seating in the room.
We stayed upstairs and only came down to the party to bring them pizza and cake. We sure heard them though.
Happy Birthday #3!! I hope all of your wishes come true! Mom needs a nap now.
Let's keep in touch!
