My oldest baby turned 13 in April and I am so behind in sharing what we did to celebrate. 13 is a big deal in my family. Well, all birthdays are important but you only become a teenager once!
I still can't believe that I have an official teenager in my house!! She is an amazing young lady and I was proud to be able to put on a great party for her.
The decorations were all rose gold and white. My husband made a large wooden 13 that we put lights in to decorate the space. The table decorations were beautiful. We used rose gold glitter table runners and white lanterns with tea light candles to light up the table. Party City had really nice rose gold tableware that worked perfectly with the decor of the room. I wanted to go with linen table cloths but we were having a nacho/taco bar and I decided plastic was a more economical choice.
Since making things with my Cricut machine is my new obsession I thought shirts would a cute addition to the party favors. So Birthday Squad shirts for all!
Also as a favor to go along with their shirts are white sunglasses with their names in vinyl on them!
Lastly, there were cups with their names on them filled with fun goodies every preteen/teen would love.

This party was a huge success. We took the girls to a local place to rock climb, play laser tag, mini golf and more. The girls had a blast.
When planning your next party at home or at a party venue consider Creative Celebrations to help make your event a "Creative Celebration"!!!!
It's been awhile since I've posted but boy have I been busy. Recently, I was talking to my sister (Check her out at https://powerofwordsbooks.weebly.com/) about how I hadn't posted in awhile because I have been so busy with craft projects for people not parties. To make a long story short she reminded me that Creative Celebrations is more than just party planning and decorating. It's about creating an atmosphere of celebration. Celebrating who you are in many different ways is what we are all about.
My newest crafting adventure has been designing t-shirts for those celebrating different avenues and journeys of life. Here is just some of the projects that I have worked on.
Celebration of Culture
Celebration of Family
Celebration of Love
Celebration of Milestones
How do you celebrate special occasions? Leave me a comment. I'd love to add some new celebrations to my list!
