My friend's daughter Grace is one of my favorite little ladies... and absolutely my FAVORITE COOP client! She always has very clear ideas of what she wants -- and it's usually something fab. She did the Dolphin, Donut, Disco party -- and the Mod Safari in turquoise and red in the past. I always love her color choices especially! For this birthday -- she's a bit older now so it was a pool party/ COOP Party at Home. She just wanted Candy, candy, candy -- no goodie bags, per se -- just a big fabulous candy bar (we did goodie bags -- but they were empty waiting to be filled with candy candy candy!!!) I am so annoyed that I didn't have a flash on my camera because the party was so so gorgeous -- but my photo skills really were lacking on this one! But I did want to share just a few (albeit sub par!) shots -- as it was such a fun day, for such a fun, sweet little girl! She chose lavendar and red as her color scheme and I simply ADORE how it looked together! The red and white striped runners, napkins, birthday banners -- all really looked so beautiful up against the lavender backgrounds. I did candy bracelets on the juice cups (never enough Candy, remember!!) a HUGE candy bar inside (where I had no good lighting for photos unfortunately!) Funnily -- I spent DAYS upon DAYS wrapping red and white beach balls in cello and ribbon tie-ing the ends for a hard candy look. They were so cool looking -- I FILLED the pool with them. Went back up to the party area to finish decorating -- and the lifeguard UNWRAPPED them all! Such a bummer! But I had to laugh. I guess she thought they were all new beach balls that needed to be opened. At least Gracie got to see them before the disaster! I also made what seemed like 100's of the gum ball flowers which I just LOVE LOVE! I have used them for other parties since... I just adore them so. OK -- so that's it. Candy Party at home! Hope you think it's sweet!!!
