Happy Sweet 16th Kidnap Pajama Birthday Party!
After trying to figure out how to have a birthday party for an ALL girl sweet sixteen party, we finally settled on a Kidnap Breakfast. I called all the girl's moms to tell them we would be kidnapping them at 7 a.m. on Saturday morning and taking them to breakfast at IHOP and then back to our house to make journals and cake and ice cream.
The Moms were very cooperative and fun and did not tell their daughters that we were coming and made sure they were all dressed in modest pajamas so they would not be embarrassed when a gaggle of girls burst into their bedroom to kidnap them.
We went to IHOP where the birthday party sat at one table and the family members at another. We went back to our house to make journals. The journal example I had was designed by my team member Pam O'Conner. ALL of the journals turned out differently. The girl's definitely have their own ideas and differences and you can tell by the journals.
The cake was designed and made by a friend Liz Sherman's sister, Anna Juarez. Anna makes yummy, gorgeous, one-of-a-kind cakes. All I did was tell her I wanted a Sweet Sixteen cake and told her what we were doing for the party. She did an awesome job of coming up with the idea and adding fun details that she imagined Kassidy/Blair would like, adding Twilight posters and even a picture of the journal we made on the bed. The girl's LOVED the cake and were arguing about who got to eat the TV, the slippers, the bedframe, the bed, the posters, etc., it was a riot!! Thanks so much to Liz and April for working so hard on the cake and making it fabulous!!
Then the girl's watched New Moon and we took them home with their journals!
