A happy birthday

E. had her 15th birthday !
She invited 5 friends and had a party on the porch.
They played some games and plenty of loud music. I don't mind the loud music at all. [We don't play rap music at our house. ]

The menu consisted of: hamburgers & hot dogs fixed on the grill, chips, watermelon, pop and then Breyer's French vanilla ice cream and white cake w/ white frosting.
A. made the cake for her sister. She is becoming a frequent baker at our house! She decorated it with tiny pirate figurines {which N. happily inherited after the candles were blown out}, and gold coins and cocktail/appetizer swords. E. chose these very tall skinny candles.

The porch was decorated with Pirates of the Caribbean theme. The table and serving area were set with treasure maps {N. also got these after the party}, and scattered gold coins {these were N's, we borrowed them from him!}, and rocks that were painted like chunks of gold. There were candles flickering and giant Pirates Mylar balloons all around.
E. loves Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom. She even has posters of them in her bedroom.
E. thinks that her cousin, D.D. looks like J. Depp ( but with short hair)...I have to say I agree!
P.S. - I have to admit the milk glass cake pedestal doesn't really go with her party theme. That was my fault. I just really like using it. Sorry E. Your mom always has to wreck something. It's part of being a mom to a teenager!

Happy Birthday, Elise! I think Johnny Depp is pretty cute too and I am wayyyyy older than you.

Happy Birthday to Elise!! What a fun party that sounds like--and who doesn't like Johnny and Orlando--even an old bag such as myself finds those 2 pretty dreamy, LOL!

Smiles, Karen
