{BIRTHDAY} Saylor's Bowling Party

My niece Saylor turned 9 and my sister threw her a really fun bowling party. The kids got dropped off at Saylor's house and ate snacks and played pictionary while waiting for everyone to arrive. Then they headed over to the bowling alley. It's a great age for a bowling party because these kids need no instruction. They put on their own shoes, they pick out their own ball, and they get the game started. It was awesome. We couldn't bring our own food into the bowling alley so after the games were over we laid out blankets in the grass outside and ate donuts and chocolate milk. Saylor opened presents while waiting for the parents came to pick up their kid.
The favor: purple and orange gum balls.

{BIRTHDAY} Pony Party - Quinn's 4th Birthday

My sister Annie did it again. Another successful birthday party. Her youngest, Quinn, turned four and they decided to have a pony party. Annie rented a pony to come to the house to give rides to the kids. When not on a pony ride they had a craft table, snacks, and some party games. For dessert: cookies and ice cream! 

Every guest got a bandana

{BIRTHDAY} Sweet 16

I helped plan and throw a sweet 16 birthday party last weekend. I've never helped with a sweet 16 party and it was so fun! That is such a fun age, remember how awesome it was to turn 16! This birthday girl is the coolest. She had a lot of ideas and new what she wanted which was helpful in planning. We had the party at the Aliso Creek Inn and golf course. It's gorgeous! Aliso Creek catered the food. We had chocolate fondue, a donut bar, hot chocolate station, pizza, pop corn and cotton candy bags. Sounds like a lot huh! I thought so too but with around 100 teens at a party the food was devoured and it was nice to have options. 
We got a photo booth at the party which was a HIT. You could chose black and white or colored pictures and it printed 2 strips. At the end of the party they gave the birthday girl an album of the pictures and a disc with all the images! The DJ was awesome and the kids danced all night long. McKenna, the birthday girl wanted a candy station too we ordered darling bags from Zurchers, the candy from Smart and Final, and scoops from The Container store
The decor was simple, not much needed when you are in a gorgeous canyon. Giant balloons and tissue paper tassels were just enough and Mckenna helped paint some signage on wood. 
The party was a success! Even the rain couldn't ruin this party. phew!
