Now I am really happy with how these centerpieces came out! You know when you have one of those moments when you kind of impress yourself when you come up with an idea? Trust me it doesn't happen to me often! LOL! But I LOVE this idea :) I printed out wallet sized pics of Shianne throughout the year and mounted them on CS and attached to lollipop sticks! I found brand new wooden boxes at Salvation Army and covered with coordinating papers. The pennant is a Spellbinders die.
Shi has been friends with Missy and Alyssa for 6 years, they met in Jr. High and have been great friends ever since. As I was looking for pics I found this one from 2007 and paired it up with their prom picture from this year. The girls absolutely loved it! I think it is so cool! They have grown to be beautiful women.
**UPDATE** I've had several people ask how I kept the lollipop sticks to stand up and not fall over. I took a block of floral foam and used a steak knife to cut a piece that wedged into the boxes and recycled formula can. I put some hot glue in the bottom of the can to hold the foam but if it's wedged in there tight then you don't need it. I would love to see your interpretation of these if you make them! And please link back to this post if you do :)
Now time for the crazy fun! The kids started going down the water slide 2 and 3 at a time which resulted in going over the end of it!!
I know how much the kids like taking pics of themselves so I made a photo booth with accessories but they were so busy they didn't even touch them til night time but we did get a few pics. I found a lot of the free printable props at Accent the Party (scroll down).
And finally...the bonfire...so awesome!
