celebrate | with an elegant photo shoot

Finally!  The party pictures are here (with details below)!

My friend Wendy and I planned this pretty celebration for her daughter’s 15th birthday.  After an evening of brainstorming, we settled on a subtle color scheme of grays and pinks.  And we decided to make the entire party one big photo shoot.  What 15 year-old doesn’t want her picture taken?  Did somebody say “F-A-C-E-B-O-O-K photo-op”?  Ha!

Wendy made elegant party hats.
 
Parisian macarons made by me; scrumptious cupcakes made by Wendy.
Glamorous!
The birthday girl. 
Gorgeous!
My favorite photo progression! 
Peekaboo!
They decorated the birthday girl.
Lexington – the dog – had to be a part of this one.
Glittery numbers and all dressed up.

The party’s over!

Here are details:

Food
– for dinner, we served plain cheese pizza, BUT to make it special, served a variety of toppings in silver  and glass dishes
– for dessert, we served homemade cupcakes and Parisian macarons, which was on display throughout the day
– pink lemonade in glass bottles
– pink and red candy in pretty bowls

Decorations
– homemade happy birthday banner (like my glittery birthday numbers)
– homemade party hats
– lots of light pink, magenta, silver and white balloons
– tons of confetti
– pink, white and gray fabric hanging as backdrop
– homemade paper flower garland
– ribbon from Hagerstown, MD ribbon factory

Activities
– all we had planned was dinner and the photo shoot (we asked the girls to bring an assortment of outfits, all in the gray//pink family)!

Props
– party hats
– antlers
– homemade canvas flags
– scarves
– rain boots
– hair accessories
– fabric balls
– large cardboard swizzle stick decorated with ribbon

Enjoy!!

till tomorrow,

Rebecca

    Wow, you did SUCH and amazing job! I love the color scheme. So you ACTUALLY made the macaroons? I've heard they are super time consuming to make. Good for you!

    the one of the dog with antlers is worthy of a frame on the wall! and the one of you should be in a magazine – you're beautiful! i bet every one of those 15 year olds had a dream come true to model for the day. thank you for mentioning the cheese pizza – a good reminder that you can do simple along with fancy!
