Aloha!

(Your baby turns 11 only once....hence the obscene amount of photo's.)

I thought it would be fun to make the cupcakes interesting.

cup...cakes...   :)


I know they are really adult beverage glasses..
shhh..they will never know ;)

 They thought they were the neatest cupcake holders ever!

I just hot glued a lil orchid on the stem.


Having a lula means having fun!


One can get tacky with decorations....it's ok.


Are these not the cutest straws ever?!

....Dollar tree


For party favors I personalized these cute pineapple cups.

Dollar Tree...



Lanterns...Dollar Tree


Right before her party started, Maddy (lucky girl) had flowers delivered to her door.
They were from my brother Shawn.  love you~


I just noticed that she is almost as tall as I am now...oh my!


A fun shot of some of the girls in the playhouse.


These were some of the sweetest 11 yr old girls ever!


Heidi...never left out..ha!


Missy and Brittany


Me & the sweetie!


Blaise and Missy


Brett and Kaylee


Outside we had a snowball station.


A huge hit in 100 degree weather!


"The Tent"

This year she almost spent the night in it all night...almost..hehe


But before we said goodnight we had a little firework show.
Thank you Blaise!

They are like a small hot air balloon....neat!


We watched as it floated away...

  1. looks like a lot of fun! If I let my daughter have another party for her 11th next year I might have to use this theme idea! I am still recovering from her 10th in March when we had 15 girls :) I love dollar tree for their party things!

  3. What a wonderful day for Maddy. Love the luai theme and all the family pics.
    I have seen that thing that was floating away recently in our neighborhood. LOL maybe it was from Maddy's party.

  4. looks like you had much more success with your lantern than my cousin did in Texas. Here's my post of her practicing for her wedding. http://tuttiaposto.blogspot.com/2011/06/zoo-and-austin.html

    btw...she won't be having these at her wedding. :)
    Cute birthday party, you didn't miss a detail.
    Take care!

  5. Susie,

    I had a luau when I turned 11 and still remember it to this day! Our neighbor was from Hawaii and helped my mother plan everything. :D

    You did a wonderful job, such attention to details.

    Happy birthday to Maddy!

    Your Friend,
    Deborah
