My Parties: Serina's 12th Birthday {Zebra Funk}

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a fab weekend! Mine was great but very exhausting. We celebrated my daughter Serina's 12th birthday on Saturday. She requested a little party for her and her friends, plus a sleep over. So we did just that! It was a little tricky putting this together because if you have tweens or teens, you know how PICKY they can be. Those creatures are very hard to please! With her help on EVERY detail, I thought we put together something cute and funky, yet simple, we called it "Zebra Funk". I incorporated some of her favorite things like jeans, bead bracelets, the color blue, zebra prints and photos. She loved it and all the girls had a great time, what more can I ask for. (Sorry for the over load of pics! There are actually MORE, check out the full album HERE)
I also want to thank Claudia of Tini Posh for squeezing me into her busy schedule to make the awesome dessert labels and table signs for me! You ROCK GIRL!!!
I made the table runners out of denim and added a zebra trim.

Bracelet making.....
Activity and favor table
Favors included:Color hair extensions, sunglasses and candyHaving a make-up artist in the family is VERY convenient! The girls enjoyed their make-overs.
Shirt cutting is HUGE with tween/teens. I highly recommend it for a fun party activity. I taught myself just by watching a tutorial on YouTube.

I am loving this Jeannette!! Its perfect! Looks like they enjoyed every minute of it. I have a few years before my own girls reach that age, but I'll keep something like this mind! Love those colors together too. Great job!
