Ashni's last big party!

The Janelle Monae dance party is done and so is my birthday party season for now.  Phew!  The kids had a great time.  I'm pretty sure that Just Dance is the absolute best birthday party activity for girls aged 8 to 13!

The birthday girl looked quite dapper in her bow tie and jacket.  She really looked the part (fortunately the hair do is much easier than it looks)

The cardboard boombox was a last minute decorating idea.  For some reason I drew a blank on party decor for this one, so we just had tons of black and white crepe paper and balloons.  So it just felt like we needed something else.  Fortunately, I always have lots of cardboard on hand.  Nothing like free table decor.

This was, by far, the coolest cake topper ever!! Someday I will learn to stage things and have a nice blank background so that things will pop, but right now, I photograph my regular old life.  So you get to see the wall map and green high chair in the background.

A great time was had by all and I am glad it's over for another 8 months or so.  Time to take a party break!


  1. That looked like fun...I'm sad we weren't there.

  2. Start planning to be here for the next one. Youhave until December, lol.

  3. I forwarded a link to this posting to a friend of mine who works in Janelle's management company. He was delighted and amazed and I'm sure he'll be sharing this with Janelle.

  4. WOW! Thanks, Bob Merlis. That's really awesome of you!

  5. Your daughter has great taste! Coolest party ever!

  6. Yes. I'm here for it. This will be my daughter's first birthday theme lol
