The Sweet Sixteenth- Plans upon Plans

Too tired to think of a title. Heck, I'm not even sure I can think of a post. HA!

Before I forget, a big shout out to my writer friends in Oklahoma and other states hit hard by the ice storm. Hope everything is well, and I'm thinking about you!

For some reason I have been staying up late and sleeping in. Did that today, even though it's a Monday. It's a holiday right?

So the sweet sixteen party planning is still going full force. It is a black and white party with silver being her accent color. We are holding it at my niece's house which has much more room and way classier. In fact, it probably has five or six thousand square feet. It is also so beautifully decorated that we will have to spend less on decorations. She is in love with the romance period so there are already a lot of flowers, candles, and garlands.

We did go and buy the black and white silk flowers that we're mixing with the real flowers. We also picked up about 20 yards of tulle, several garlands and sealing wax with a stamp for her invitations (which we HAVE to get out tomorrow since people may have to buy clothes for the party. Only black and white, you know!.) We have two chocolate fountains for dipping and a lighted fountain that turns the punch different colors. We plan on using a white punch of some kind so it won't spill on the floor! With 35 to 40 teens... something is bound to spill!

Here are the cakes she is getting her cake from... she wants the size and the ribbon from the dotted one and the design of the tiered one.

That's going to be a beautiful cake :)

Thanks, Terri. As far as I know everyone in Oklahoma is okay. The storm wasn't as bad as they predicted, thank goodness.

And wow! I've never heard of such a fancy sweet 16! On my 16th birthday, I saw Speed at the movies with my mom and best friend. No party, because I was in the middle of Governor's School.

Teri, you're a legend, and boy do those cakes look nice. As you've seen on my blog, I'm a complete party novice so I'm in total awe right now.

Thanks for the shout out Teri! Northeast OK got hit pretty bad. My acreage is an ice rink but those south of us got it much much worse. Many are without power and will be for quite some time. Yuk.

Beautiful cakes! The party is going to be so much fun...uh, for your daughter... a lot of work for you.
