Buggie turns 6. {Pretty Garden Party}

This past weekend my little Buggie turned 6. 
She kept telling me leading up to it "Momma, do not cry." 
She knows me so well.
But I held my own and did not shed a tear.
But what I did do was put together a sweet girlie party just like she asked for.

Of course I teamed up with my girlie Kori from Paper and Pigtails.
 Who just came out with a beautiful line made from her hand drawn illustrations.
Her take on a girlie garden theme was a beautiful inspiration. 

As I shared, I made some crepe flowers large and small for the table.
I also made a few cake stands with a couple old candle sticks I had and sprayed painted gold.

One thing that is ALWAYS a request for parties in our family are Oreo Pops.
And to make them have just a little sparkle I took some Wiltons gold dust and brushed them.


Another request Avery had was for powdered doughnuts.
I bought two bags of sweet sixteen one powder and on cinnamon sugar.
Then I took the bag of cinnamon ones added more gold dust and shook them to cover...

I would say in total it was around $80 for the whole table and food, not bad especially since it was all gone at the end.

And we decided for favors to give flower pots with some soil and seeds. Which the pots I got in the Target dollar bin, seeds were .99 each and the soil was $3.99 for a HUGE bag. So just $2 for each.
And EVERY kid was so excited to take them home.

One other thing we have done for the past three birthdays for Buggie is have a face painter.
And we have been lucky to have Carolina the Doodler for the last two of them.
I highly recommend her for parties and other events.

The birthday girl was so happy which made us happy.
Good day for all.
