Tropical Girl's Birthday Party

I still can't believe my baby girl is NINE, wowzers!
Where has the time gone?? 

She wanted to have her Birthday at the indoor water
park near us, so picked a tropical motif for Mama to
work her magic with this year. It was fun working 
with all the fun colors and seeing her face light
up when she saw the decorations, was the icing
on top of the store bought cake.
(yup, I'm that Mom)

Before her big day, we of course had to make 
party invitations, no store bought of digital ones
for this family...
Addie had fun coloring all the toucan birds, I 
cut them out and we used a pop dot to made them
fly off the invitations.

Her simply "loud" store bought cake was 
gobbled up by all the sugar hungry party girls...

A bit of coordinating party table flair to adorn the tables.
We picked up a carton of tiny paper umbrellas and scattered
them in the middle of the tables with tropical flowers, that the 
girls had fun playing with while they were waiting for the
pizza to arrive.

and finally a Thank You to all her silly friends for
helping make her 9th Birthday a splashing success!

 We made flower hair clips and added a few pieces of 
candy taffy to their thank you bags.

Happy Birthday baby girl, I LOVE you
to the moon and back!!
