A couple of years ago, the day after Christmas my daughter decided she wanted to surprise her dear friend since preschool, with a Sweet Sixteen party at our house! I have this belief that when my kids want to do something at our house with their friends I always try to say, “Yes“. I love that they want to have their friends over and they want to be here…so I said “sure”….and with a couple other of her friends we threw a together a great party! I think it was one of my favorites! We hit the stores, which equals some great sales, the day after Christmas! We decided for favors to have a “give away” of the birthday girl’s favorite things. The girls handed out gift bags and took turns telling stories of why it was the birthday girl’s favorite! Then we had a cake and filled the desert table with a candy bar and boxes so the guests could take home candy! We had so much fun….I was thinking of this party today, because my house was all decorated for Christmas, but we mixed the “Sweet Sixteen” in beautifully!
