It's a Special Day Over at Our Home

It's time to Celebrate!

Throw a Party!

Eat Cake!!

Are you wondering why??


it's our youngest daughter, Callie's
13th birthday!!


Do you remember when you turned 13?
I remember being so excited to finally be a "teenager"

Tonight we are celebrating with a family dinner of her favorite...

Dessert will be cheesecake with strawberries and chocolate chips...
her special request.

So you know me...I had to decorate!

We decided on a aqua/brown/white crown theme. Not princess...that would be too juvenile. So we call it crown party!

Aubrie, the big sis made these adorable crown sugar cookies for Callie and she helped me with all the decorations

Matching Gift Wrap

Streamers, pearls, garlands oh my!

How do you like the brown jeweled crown I found at Hobby Lobby??
I think it's perfect for the theme!

We added brown feathers around the stems of the glasses.
We even have a special aqua colored drink to put in the glasses.

I wish I would have had brown or silver chargers..oh well.

And here's my sweet baby Callie!
Callie, can I still call you my baby even though your now a TEEN??

We Love You Callie!

This looks great, Darlene! I love the color scheme you chose. I want those plates and cookies at MY next party! You can let your daughter know that now that she's 13 {and officially a teen} it goes from being a "princess" to a "diva". The crown works for both!

Oh my stars what an exciting turning point. My niece is 12 an all she talks about is turning the big 1 - 3 ! I am so happy for you and what an exciting memory you have made for your daughter. The decorations are incredible. What an amazing Mom you are.

Where does the time go, right? Her photos are great, and the decorations are gorgeous! Hope she has a fun b-day!

What a fun birthday table for your sweet teenage little girl! I bet she loved this. I love the coordinating wrapping paper too. Great job! Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Callie! The decorations and those crown cookies look wonderful! Aren't early January birthdays hard? My son's birthday is tomorrow. We want to make it special because I think sometimes his birthday gets overlooked a bit because it is so close to Christmas! You have put together a wonderful birthday for her!!

Beautiful photos, you'll cherish those forever! Loved the birthday table. Can you please share where you bought the paper goods? Was it Hobby Lobby or even who makes them (no Hobby Lobby in So. Cal). My middle daughter would go crazy over those and her birthday is in Feb.
