Sydney's 16th

A couple of weeks ago Kevin's niece (Sydney) turned 16!
 
I still can't believe she's 16!!!!
{sniff, sniff *tear*}
 
Isn't she beautiful?! Yes. The answer is Yes.
 
 
 
 
 
 
I got to do the decorations & desserts for the birthday bash/cookout
The theme was music; using the colors purple, blue, green & black
 
This may not pop out in the picture below, but Syndey's mom made a homemade guac dip which I am now completely addicted to. So if you have a party I will probably make and bring it just so I can eat it... so have a party and invite me already!!
 
 
 
 
Sydney's mom also made this awesome shark watermellon inspired by pinterest!

{made out of construction paper using a circle cutter & circle punches, then sewn together} 
and musical notes
{made out of black poster board & party city fans}
 
 
 
 
It was hard to get a good picture of the circles above the dessert table, but they turned out really cool!
We used cardstock and two different sizes of circles - sewing them every other one to make these circle streamers that hung from the ceiling.
 
 
 
 
Desserts included chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting, chocolate cupcakes with cake batter frosting, cookies & cream cupcakes, cakepops, white chocolate popcorn, musical note sugar cookies & a cake!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
There was also a "photo booth" set up with props for some serious seriously fun picture taking!

Me & Grant {nephew}
 
 
 
 
Kevin & I {umm... the cool uncle & aunt!?!}
 
 
 
 
Claire {niece}
 
 
 
 
Jayne {niece)
 
 
 
 
The theme came together at the last minute so I owe many thanks to Kevin, Amy & JD for slaving away Friday night cutting & sewing circles & decorating cookies while I baked the cupcakes!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So thankful for the help of friends and the love of family!
