Madeline’s 13th Party!

Posted by on Apr 29, 2012 in banner, birthday | 17 comments

I had the honor of decorating for Madeline’s 13th birthday brunch.

Here are the pictures:

I decorated a magnet board for the front door decoration.  Madeline gets to keep the magnet board as part of her birthday gift from me!

With 17 guests, the table was VERY long!

You can find out how I made the napkin rings here.

And, how to make the party hats here.

I also decorated the mantle.  You can find out how to make the pinwheels here.

And, how to make the banner here.

Notice the purple frame.  Have you seen where people have their pictures made while they hold a frame? You stand behind the frame and pose?  I hope that they all wore their party hats and got their picture made with Madeline with the frame.  I was not able to be at the party (2 soccer games at 2 different places at the same time for my girls while my husband was out of town – impossible to be 2 places at the same time, and even harder to be 3 places at the same time!)  I can’t wait to see the pictures of the actual event!

Life to the full to you today!
