A Birthday Party for a Nine Year Old Girl

Hi friends,
Thanks for joining me. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I know one almost nine year old girl in my house who did. Her 'Disco Dancing Karaoke Singing Birthday Party' was a success- I could tell by the grin on her face.



My daughter, Bryce, and I had a lot of fun playing her ninth birthday party together.

Here's what she wanted on the birthday agenda:
1. A few great girlfriends
2. Dancing
3. Singing to Karaoke Machine with Microphones
4. Dressing Up in Make-Shift Photo Booth
5. Ice Cream Cones on the Porch
6. Open Gifts
7. Give out Goody Gift Bags



Here's what spontaneously got added:
1. Jump roping in the driveway (one friend gave her an awesome huge jump rope)
2. Putting on a play for me

Here's a couple of pictures to share.

Make-shift Photo Booth:






Dancing and Singing:






The girls had ice cream cones decorated like microphones on the porch ( I didn't get any pictures because I was busy making ice cream cones):






My girl and her girlfriends had a great time.
Thanks for joining me.
Happy decorating & living,

A Disco Dancing Karaoke Party

Dear friends,
Thanks so much for joining me...so sorry my blog postings have been so few and far between.....you know how it goes...LIFE happens.

Well, it's time for another birthday (or 2) over here at The Brew Crew household. Our sweet active dancing sassy girl is turning 9 years old next week. She and I have been searching pinterest and making lists of plans for weeks and the day of the party is almost here. We can hardly wait. I don't know who is more excited...her or me!

She decided she wanted a dance party with karaoke singing and make-shift photo booth. All pretty easy to set up and inexpensive to pull off.

By the way, my daughter shares her birthday with Mr. Brew Crew as well.

Here's our decorating for the party...I will try to share some actual photos from the party this weekend later next week.

Hope you all have awesome weekends....

Rings that flash and glittery necklaces to share-








Someone is super excited-

 
 
Oh to be 9 again! I'm feeling about as giddy as a 9 year old myself! May we all find some child-like joy this weekend.
 
 
Happy decorating & living,
Megan

Springtime is here

Hi Friends,
Happy Spring! How does spring look where you are? One fun fact about where we live in North Carolina: a thick green film of pollen from the many pine trees coats everything and I mean EVERYTHING!!!! I have never in my whole life seen pollen like this! It's almost like you don't want to go outside because every surface is coated with it. On a walk yesterday I even saw 'pollen clouds' literally clouds of the green gross stuff being blown from pine trees. Yuck!


Here are some spring time pictures from inside (where I even find the gross green stuff on surfaces). Okay, enough complaining, it should be gone soon enough.












 

Happy decorating,
Megan
