Sweet 16 Birthday Party

This is a Sweet 16 birthday party I designed recently for a beautiful young lady who is “reaching for the stars.”  We used her favorite color palette as a starting point and sprinkled in a little bit of a star motif.  The event was captured perfectly by Paige Stevens Photography.
I worked with Lindi of Love the Day to create signage for the party, and she created the perfect design with starbursts and a youthful feel.  Also helping me out was Nichole of Hey Babycakes, who provided delicious decorated cookies for favors.  She was able to design the cookies to match the signage Lindi created!
Hope you enjoyed the party and many thanks to the fantastic vendors who participated.  Give them a click for your next event!
