LOUD!

One word describes E's birthday party, LOUD! Luckily it was an outside party for the most part and even when it rained for a few minutes, the girls stayed in the tent. I got soaked while barbecuing burgers and dogs.

The cake was decorated with E and her party guests. I made them out of gum paste and E helped me paint them with food coloring. The girls made up a game to decide who would eat whom. In the end, most just wanted to eat themselves.

The favors included flowered metal buckets and lip gloss from the dollar store, Petunias, a lollipop, and necklaces from Michael's. Each one cost under $3.

The cake is awesome, but there's something a little bit creepy about eating your gum paste self. :-D

You really know how to put on a party! I love the party favours - might have to pinch that one myself for ICE's party bash - if you don't mind of course.
Loved the cake also!

What beautiful party favours! I'm pouting because my girls' bdays are in Oct and Feb. And not in the spring. Those really are lovely, as is the cake.

Samantha's 11th is coming up so thanks for some great ideas... I think we are going to do 80's themed movies: Pretty in Pink, 16 Candles, Teen Wolf... after reading your post I may set up the projector outside!

Heidi, you freakin' amaze me! If I let my daughter see that cake she would run away to be adopted by you.
