Sweet 16

Sorry this party was almost a month ago and I am just getting around to blogging it. I have know Azmera since she was first born. Her mom and I went to school together and my mom and her grandmother worked together. Come to think about her mom and I worked together right along side our moms as well back when I was in college.

This family has gone through a lot this past year and I wanted to make sure that Azmera had the best sweet 16 party she could have. We were on a pretty tight budget but with some help from some awesome vendors it came off.

Azmera wanted purple and gold and green to be her colors and she wanted a carnival theme. We went a little traditional Carny style carnival and a little Mardi Gras carnival. Threw in some stars that the birthday girl loved and we had a party!

Those that made this happen:

DJ: Stretch Sound. JT was out of town at a family obligation, but Allen and Jarrod stepped up and found all the music she wanted and kept people tapping their toes.

Photos: Me. I tried to get as much as I could. I had someone else lined up to come help but a stomach bug while pregnant did not allow that to happen.

Cake: Bippity Boppity Bake Shoppe. Cyndi did an amazing job of capturing just what the birthday girl wanted, and it tasted so good.

Food: All the food was donated or bought by the family and friends and family served. Azmera wanted hot dogs, snow cones, nachos, and popcorn. The family that runs the concessions at the soccer and softball fields really helped out by getting us all the equipment we needed to pull that off and serve the food (thanks Rebecca).

Venue: Dunbar Recreation Center.

All the vendors went above and beyond. they knew what type of budget we had to work with and they made it happen. I highly recommend checking them out for you next event. They are all so great.
