I can’t believe my baby girl is 16!! I mean wasn’t it just yesterday she needed me for EVERYTHING?!? Not so much these days 😭 But while her first words and first steps may seem like forever ago, watching her grow and become a young woman feels a bit like baby steps, for me!!
We came up with the idea of a cocktail style party (non-alcoholic drinks for those underage of course). The invitations said: “Come in your finest!” And since you all know I’m completely obsessed with blush pink right now, it seemed like the perfect accent colour 💗
Blush pink and white blooms made everything feel so fresh, pretty and feminine.
Rather than a sit down dinner, we served small bites throughout the evening. Tip: We did it all ourselves, but you could easily hire a local catering company. As this was a family celebration and most guests were of age, we kept things simple but pretty with Cosmopolitan martinis to start and rosé bubbles to toast the birthday girl. Tip: Keep a set of inexpensive champagne glasses on hand for dinner parties. Not something you use everyday, but sure nice to have for a special event like this.
Pink and white balloons and a gold “Sixteen” cake topper and banner complemented the feminine theme. Tip: A few baby pics and some pretty prints were fun ways to really personalize the night and celebrate our girl.
Such a special night celebrating our beautiful girl!! I’m so grateful and lucky to be her Mama 💗 So glad I could share it with all of you!!
