Pink Sweet SIX-Teen-IETH

To help my mom celebrate her SIXTIETH, or as we like to call it, Sixteenieth, we threw a GRAND surprise party!
Her FAVORITE color is PINK.  So of course EVERYTHING had to be PINK!

We even asked in the invitation (by WH Cards) for everyone to WEAR pink.
And most of them did!

We had a beautifully PINK food table (with a few veggies thrown in):

OF course we had "ROSiE" cookies and cupcakes:
mini cupcakes by The Cookie Princess
cupcake toppers (that match the invitations) by me and my Silhouette.

cookies also by The Cookie Princess

Milk bottles were purchased at Polka Dot Market.
filler is from Hobby Lobby in the floral department.
Mini cupcakes fit PERFECTLY in the top of the milk bottles.
WARNING: The filler is VERY staticy

Below is my FAVORITE display:
striped and polka dot straws inside pink gumballs all purchased at
Polka Dot Market
Trifle dish from Pampered Chef with a
drinking glass inside to hold the straws (borrowed from our hostess, Amy.)

We missed getting a picture of the pink punch.  Probably because it was SOOOO good it didn't last long :)  I will see if Amy will give me the recipe to post.

More Silhouette FUN: the plate has the same circle as the cupcake toppers.
the hat I cut out with two different papers and then tore and placed to make one adorable hat! And all of the "cards" were print and cut on the Silhouette.

The "R" in the photo I scanned and traced to cut on my silhouette (would have been easier to just trace on the reverse side of the paper)
then just cut one inch strips to cover the edges.
The eggs were a steal at Hobby Lobby and the Polka Dot Balloons are also
from Polka Dot Market, another hat in the pic just for fun and a book borrowed from the princess of the house, PINK.
 Tissue Poms and milk bottles from Polka Dot Market
White Dishes from my grandmother (Rosie's mom), Godiva Strawberry truffles from Target. Pink Paris Wrapping Paper on the table is from our hostess.

Amy made this awesome banner with brown paper and paint.

this is where the birthday girl thought she was going.
to a little boy's 6th birthday party

waiting on the birthday girl to arrive:

So the MOST FUN, MOST TALKED about thing at the party was the
I found this idea here and shared it with our hosts.
Pete RAN with it!
Check this out:

Pete's lights! Balloons and pink Lanterns holding them from Polka Dot Market
PINK helium tank: wonderful accident.  We had NO idea it was pink until we pulled it out of the box.  Then we just stuck an "R" on it for pretty.

PROPS: Everyone grab a prop

Props created mosty by the Silhouette and some pink paper.
Then hot glued onto some dowel rods and kabob skewers.

And HERE are some of the photos!
EVERY one who came to the party went to the photo booth.
I kept asking if they had been there (especially the one's I knew wouldn't do it) and to my surprise EVERY one replied they had been already.  AND They were telling the truth!  It really was a FUN FUN FUN Thing!
Helps to have a GREAT photographer too.  Thanks, Pete!

Here are some more photos:
including all the "grandkids" in their My Nana RockS shirts I made

The birthday girl and me!  LOVE YOU, MOM!
