{Entertaining} 18th Birthday Party

We celebrated Miss High School's actual 18th birthday in Disneyworld but we also had a little celebration with the family.
 I didn't go crazy with the decorations but I did make her a birthday banner.
I found a photo from each of her birthdays and edited them all in black and white so they'd be cohesive.
I added a label for each year and we strung the banner across the mantel.
I followed the same instructions that I used here for her sister's birthday banner.
The banner, some balloons and fall flowers made up the party decorations.
I displayed her baby book and opened it up to her first birthday page. #littlepumpkin
I used my handy dandy Ikea Raskog cart for the drink ware.
The menu was simple and yummy.   I baked up a Stouffers mac and cheese and Mr. Click made stuffed shells.  I pre-made and froze the Tex-Mex Casserole from Oh She Glows cookbook (here's a copy of it that I found online). I also made the Shredded Kale Salad from Oh She Glows, roasted veggies (like these from Thanksgiving) and Pioneer Woman's "The Bread".
Look who was home for the party!
I didn't get many pics once the party started but here's one from dessert/cake time.  She requested these bars for her cake.  I found the mini candelabra at Target.  Happy Birthday Sweetie!!

It looks like a fabulous party! I love the banners you made and how you personalized them with photos of her growing up through the years. The food sounds delicious, and it's fun that you linked them, so we can go find the recipe! Have a great Thursday!
