Ice Skating Birthday Party

Our little one turned seven not too long ago.  We celebrated with a party at the ice rink where she is taking lessons.

Of course I had to put a pretty dessert table together for her special day. 

I made the cupcakes (super moist box mix) and chocolate ice skate suckers. The skates took quite a bit longer than I had planned.  When I bought the mold I thought it would be a fast project but I decided to add a second color.

I stuck the suckers into a piece of round foam, it reminded me of a skating rink.  Mr. 65th didn't agree with me:)  Oh well, it did work well to hold them up.

One of my favorite parts of planning this party was finding the perfect invitation

Serendipity Soiree offers one of a kind designer event and holiday invitations.  Catherine was wonderful to work with and I was very pleased with the quality.

The funny part is the little one's outfit almost matched her invites.  We didn't plan it that way but it was cute!

We loved the invite so much I had to go back to her shop and buy the cupcake liners.

I had a personalized bracelet made for each of the girls from a great Etsy shop called Stargazing Lily

They were reasonably priced and came out to be just under five dollars for each girl.  So much nicer than filling a party favor bag full of candy and little junk.

We rented out the small studio rink so we had it all to ourselves.

The little one and her friends had fun showing off their skating skills and had a blast!

I hope our daughter will remember her 7th Birthday when she is older and always knows how very much we love her.
