Bella’s 8th Birthday Party

I’m the best mom ever.

“Best party ever mom!”

It’s true. I rock.

But I’m the worst blogger ever. I didn’t run around with the camera frantically getting pin worthy shots.

I passed the camera around and asked everyone else to do the dirty work…while I danced with hubby and spent time with family and friends.

I don’t regret it. I had the best time, and so did Bella!

Here’s the PVC pipe photo display I told you about. This also works great at craft shows.

I took a couple pics when we were halfway done setting up. Don’t Edson’s snowflakes look great?

By the time we had all the pink stuff up I barely even noticed the yellow walls. Something like that triggers my crazy gene & usually I’d lose sleep over it.

More pink stuff going up on the walls. It was getting close to appointment time and I couldn’t get anything to stick. Panic ensued and a couple ugly words came out of my mouth. Best mom ever was nowhere to be found at this moment.

I always like to do a giant birthday card.

See it starting to come together?

I need to stop right here and say thanks to my friend Cynthia. She stayed long after I had to leave to finish setting up. I owe her SO BIG. Her hubby brought all the sound equipment and managed all our music. A fog machine even showed up. It was amazing. I hope I get rich so I can pay for their kids college or something. I have no idea how to repay them.

A list of awesome things I wish I took photos of:

The finished room! (I was late because I couldn’t find my contacts and I got puked on a little bit when I was heading out. No big deal. )

The DJ booth. It was really cool.

Bella’s table. We had it decorated so cute with a reserved sign…we made it really special. Bella got to invite her friends from school to sit with her. I loved it! (Cynthia’s design, btw.)

The cake! It was so pretty!

Here’s my favorite photo. This is Bella, past her bedtime, hopped up on cake and candy.

Now you know why I limit sugar in my house. Seriously. Look at her.

I’m back to sewing now that we’ve survived the party. I made a romper & I’m halfway through a summer dress for Bella. I couldn’t be happier to be back at my sewing table.

Although, my nephew Evan told me he wants me to make him a carnival for his March birthday….and Evan is the nephew that brings me cookies, flowers, and steals his moms nail polish for me when I ask him too. So I gotta make him the biggest carnival ever. If you want to see my ideas coming together, follow my Party Ideas board on Pinterest!

    Her dress from the pics – looks beautiful. I am sure you are glad to be back at sewing. Sewing is good therapy – at least for me :)

    Adorable. You do Rock as a mom….decorator, party planner. Did you make her dress too? I am sure she had a blast.

      I didn’t make the dress. I wish I could take credit for it, because she looked like a fancy little pink cake!

      The satin underskirt has a tulle ruffle that peeks out on bottom. It tore so I may get to do some refashioning. For that much money it may even get resized for one of my baby sister in laws.
