A little bit more than special...

Do you enjoy birthday parties? Getting together with friends and having good food to eat, mucking around, playing games and just having girly fun. I love it!
Yes, that's right. On Saturday evening, the long awaited birthday party that I'd been planning and preparing for over five months, finally came. The special 13th birthday party, approaching teenager hood, with sixteen other girls to help celebrate and encourage you. It's got to be a little more than just special.

the elegant invitations that india and i spent awhile working on

The theme of the party was to dress up in any costume from any period in history before the 20th century! I was completely amazed at the effort and time the girls had put into their outfits. They looked stunning!
I myself, had chosen a 'lizzy bennet' inspired outfit from the regency period. Actually, our friend Jessica came over and did India's and my hair in the style we wanted from whatever period in history we had chosen. She is so talented and did an amzing job!
