This is part 2 of my birthday recap! You can click here to view the first part. Today I am sharing pictures from my Lilly Pulitzer themed party!
One of the activities at my party was decorating picture frames to put our photo booth pictures in. I set out all of the supplies on the bar and made it look really cute.
We found a ton of fun resort/beach themed supplies at Hobby Lobby.
We set up a photo booth in front of my front door. I used a teal table cloth as the background and put up streamers and tissue paper flowers to make it cute. We moved the bar stools for the party but they were there so my dog wouldn't slobber all over the photo booth. lol
As I said in my last birthday post, my mom loves cute party supplies so she has the wire basket that I put all of the plates and napkins in. In my craft bin I found green and pink whale ribbon and I tied that around it too. At the party supply store we found this pineapple table decor which was super cute as decoration and in pictures.
I am in love with these napkins!
The other activity we had at the party was decorating dress cookies. These cookies were perfect for decorating.
This is the dress I wore. It isn't Lilly Pulitzer but it's from Crown and Ivy and they have cute patterns like Lilly but at a better price. You can find the brand at Belk.
These were the photo booth props.
We put all of the food on the bar and put up a birthday banner.
This was my adorable cake!
My mom made fun snacks including pineapple spread on these little slices of bread, tortilla roll ups that were so good, and we set out goldfish and peanuts.
The party was from 3 to 6 so we didn't really eat a real meal, just snacks.
My invitations came in only a couple of days before my party so I didn't get to send them out so we put one in a picture frame to be cute. We got these from Shutterfly.
I hung up my Jadelynn Brooke flag as decor.
We took tons of cute pictures at the party and I'm going to print them out and give them to my friends to put in their picture frames.
I made a couple of the photo booth props including the one I'm holding which says "it all started with a juice stand" which is a Lilly Pulitzer saying. I made another that says "every day should feel this good" which is a Vineyard Vines saying.
Cookie decorating! I made the icing my self so I could get the colors I wanted and it was a little bit runny until it hardened so it made it a little hard to decorate the cookies. This is one of McCray's cookies.
Here is mine.
This is Elizabeth's
This is my little sister's. She said she was decorating hers to look like an ugly prom dress and she definitely succeeded!
This is one of Sarah's before she finished it.
My cute cake!
These were all of Sarah's cookies! How adorable!
These were McCray's
Another one of McCray's

As you can probably guess I love Lilly Pulitzer. The bright fun prints are my favorite but they aren't quite suitable for winter. I would wear my Lilly shift dress everyday if I could but when it's 40 degrees outside a shift dress isn't weather appropriate. I came up with two ways to wear your Lilly during winter without freezing or looking out of place in your bright clothes.
It has been an eventful couple of months for me! I have been so busy with school and fun activities with friends I haven't had much time to think about updating the blog. I thought it would be good to share a little life update with you.
I'm not typically a girl who follows trends but since headbands have come back in style they're giving me all the Blair Waldorf vibes and I love it! Today I have rounded up a few of my favorite places to shop cute headbands. One thing I love about this trend is that it isn't expensive to shop, all of the items I linked are very inexpensive with the exception of the Anthropologie finds which fall on the more expensive side for an item like this.
For those of us who are seniors, graduation is right around the corner! This year flew by so fast and pretty soon I'll be in college. Today I am sharing ten dresses that are perfect for graduation. Five of the dresses are white dresses for those of you who like white dresses for graduation or who go to a school where a white dress is required and the other five are colorful dresses that I thought would be cute under your graduation gown.
