Grace's 9th Birthday Party

Time goes too fast! The girls' had their birthdays in JULY and I have yet to have the chance to share pictures! Their birthdays are TWO DAYS apart, the 16th and 18th. Since Grace's party was first, I'll share hers first. Better late than never...I guess...

Grace wanted a water party for her birthday and as I have mentioned before, she picked the theme, colors, made her invitations, planned the games and did most of the decorating. It was fun to see her take an interest and I'm happy she has the creative gene! Although it was a little hard to let..go... :-)

The favors, a package of water balloons and gum

It was an outside party, (obviously there was water involved!) so we decorated the deck.

I was so excited when I found these tins in the $1 section at Target!

The night before I got this idea for the table. The flip flops and "splash" matched her invitations.

The games! Wet sponge relay and...

water balloon toss...turned...

water balloon fight!

Water slide

Build your own sundaes

Presents..presents.. she's girly! Lots of nail polish, lotion, nail stickers, lip gloss...

It was a great party and Grace had a blast! I'm still in shock that she is nine years old!!

Hello Sarah,
I decided to take a few minutes this morning to catch up on a few of my favorite blogs---I enjoyed my visit at yours :)
Happy Birthday to Grace (even if it is a few months late) I agree doesn't time go by too quickly!! My "baby" will be 20 in April YIKES!!! Grace did a great job planning her party. The decorations are adorable and the girls really look like they had a great time. I can't wait to see pictures of Jilian's party. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Good to know about this birthday party and I am sure it was a fun party. Last month, I booked one of lovely Chicago venues for arranging my nephew’s birthday. Ordered a birthday for him and arranged a grand party with my family and friends.
