Siena celebrated her 16th birthday on September 16th, 2012. We wanted it to be extra special because we think she’s extra sweet! We decided to invite her closest friends and family to the house. Siena thought it would be fun to have a masquerade party theme and she chose the colors pink and black. We set up tables in the front field where Siena had always wanted to throw a party. The weather was beautiful!
We also displayed a photo album filled with pictures of Siena over the past 16 years and matted a giant picture of her with a signature mat so everyone could write a little message. She was all about having a candy bar for the guests to enjoy! Here’s what the party looked like all set up (notice Brad’s immaculate woodpile in the back!)
We had an outdoor barbeque complete with pasta salad, veggies, chips, and marinated chicken tenders with dipping sauces. Brad and his assistant Jared did a fantastic job at the grill! Everyone seemed to enjoy the food!
Here are some pictures of our guests. Can you guess who everyone is with their masks on? It’s a mystery!
Siena loves pictures and photography, so we made a photo booth filled with props. This was, by far, the most popular place to be. Some very memorable moments of the fun had in that photo booth!
We then had cupcakes and watched Siena open her presents. She opened a gift from Aunt Ginny which had me crying like a baby. It was my grandmother’s engagement ring (very emotional). She also FINALLY got her much desired cell phone!
Our little baby girl is growing up. We’re so proud of the young woman she has become.
