Many moons ago, I was a 16 year old girl who, when at my friend Michelle's house, would play with her baby niece Ariane. I carried her, played with her and even danced her to sleep a couple of times. Fast forward to 2011 and Ariane is turning 16 and I am signed on to help with her party. Wow, did this party make me feel old.
Ok, back to the party. Ariane told me she didn't want a sweet look to her party. She wanted it to feel more like a school dance or club. She decided on a neon / glow-in-the-dark color scheme and I had so much fun helping out.
Our friend Ana baked all the cupcakes and made all the frosting. I was in charge of icing the cupcakes. The cupcake flavors were chocolate, vanilla, cookies n cream and classic white. All the cupcakes were frosted with buttercream frosting that we colored neon blue, neon purple and neon green. I also made red velvet cake pops, dipped pretzels and lollipops.
The candy table was covered with a black tutu tablecloth. We hung silver streamers behind the table and poms above.
Marsha, Ariane's mom, ordered LED candles, tea lights, glow bracelets, glow drink sticks, light up serving trays and fiber optic centerpieces from Windy City Novelties.
Buffalo wings, egg rolls, meatballs and parfaits were served on mini plates from Smarty Had A Party
