"Sweet" Sixteen

This is why I haven't been able to post in awhile.
My oldest daughter just turned sixteen. So of course we had to have a "Sweet" Sixteen party. As you can see it's called a "Sweet" sixteen party because of all of the "Sweets".
Boy was this a lot of work!!! It was all worth it though.
I can't believe how fast time flys. I remember so vividly when she was born, it seems like just yesterday. I know that's a bit cliche but it really is so true.

Here she is my little girl. The party was a blast!!!

First we sent out invitations. They were candy bars. We hand painted paper and wrapped them, then we printed the info and attached it. She was very popular the day she handed them out. We had to have 2 chocolate fountains (of course). One White Chocolate and one Milk Chocolate.

These are our super fun centerpieces. I made the large candy in the center out of Styrofoam and then wrapped it in cellophane and added decorative ribbons to give it that final touch. They turned out better than I had hoped for.

Fun was had by all!!

Now, maybe I can get back to my life.
