Happy Birthday Katy Jo

We have had a couple parties around here lately. I still need to share the baby shower I hosted here on the family blog.

Last night we hosted a birthday party for Tessa's good friend, Katy Jo.
We had a yard full of teenagers - I love a yard full of teenagers.
 We had badminton and a few other yard games set up which they played a bit but they really just prefer to hang out and talk!
Here's the birthday girl!

Tessa's friend Katy Jo turned 17! We love Katy Jo at our house and were excited to throw a special birthday party for her.
As soon as it got dark they built a fire and made s'mores.  I put together a fun s'mores bar for them.  Lots of fun choices!

After a little more hanging out they watched a movie in the backyard.  We borrowed a projection screen and an infocus machine and they watched Katy Jo's favorite movie - Little Rascals under the stars.

For the movie we had a popcorn bar - with 5 kinds of popcorn and of course movie candy!  It was the hit of the party.
And of course there was birthday cake.  Katy Jo chose chocolate and I couldn't resist making a cute little cake bunting for the top of the cake.

Happy Birthday Katy Jo!

What a fun party. Katy Jo is fortunate to have you as friends! Love the idea of a smores bar and the popcorn bar with candy too. Hugs from WA!

Love the buntings hanging atop the cake! I might borrow the idea for my son's 7th birthday in May if it's ok?
