Roller Girl turns 11

Today my girl turned 11.
Strange birthday with her dad not here to help decorate.
Also strange birthday because I think this is the first birthday that we have not had at home.
Any birthday party has always been a home sorta deal.
Sure we have had bouncy castles and water slides etc...but it has always come to us.
So this year...we went to the party place.
A skeezy roller rink to be exact.
The employees are nice enough...in fact they are super nice.
It just isn't the fanciest place in the world.
Not that roller rinks are.
But...in my head...I could open a super cute one lol.
All retro.
Anyways. I digress. Sorry.
So Peyton turned 11.
With 11 of her best friends.
It was cute.
They were exhausted and sweaty and bruised by the end of the 3 hours.
3 hours of rolling around in one circle.
Hmmm...I thought it was a good idea until I just read that actually.

The day went off without a hitch.
The only issue other than my 6'2" helper missing was the fact that I took Peyton's camera at the last second.  Never again.  Not that indoor/rollerrink photos can be cute.
But I am most certain they can be alot cuter than what I caught.

So here is a brief breakdown of the fun.
I suck because I totally forgot to take some very important photos.
Whatever. You get the gist.

The birthday girl
Her outfit she put together.

Taylor Swift shirt...with what wrapped in it?
Tickets of course.
Some more funky-ness.
These bracelets are called Braced-lets.
Get them here.

Just a shot of sister who wanted her hair curled and who will eventually realize that her hair doesn't actually want to do anything other than wave.
The feather in her hair still makes me think of a lizard tail...ew.

Ok...so here is where it gets bad.
A. I forgot to take a photo of my party table:(
So if you want to have a rollerskating party...these all worked out well for me.
I had blinking bracelets/necklaces for the kids...which made it easier to spot who was in our group when they were out on the floor.
I also had led cups and star decorations.
Get them here.

And glow in the dark balloons.
The glow stuff was cute.

The table...I bought some fabric for a table cloth.
(this was the same "table cloth" they had in Lemonade Mouth the movie. Peyton liked it...so a simple google search and I found it. Now I have 5 yards of crazy fabric")
Here was the scene in the movie:)
Here is my table.
This of course is at the end of the party when we took all my cute food/decorations down:(
So since it is the end of the party table.
Here is what the kids got to take home.
If you were a kid in the 80's...you might have had a slush mug.
I did. And I loved mine.
Hours we would spend trying to turn a half a cup of coke into a slush...good times.
They each got a super cute cookie from this etsy chick.
I am not totally sure what they taste like...but I am going to go eat one now and I am sure they are as yummy as they are cute:)
Here was one of the table decorations. 
I just wrapped a big styrofoam square and shoved them all in it.
It worked.
The 11 was from this etsy chickie.
Hey look.  I totally forgot to take a photo of my big cookie cake with the rainbow Peyton decoration in the middle...but check it out:)
This was it.
I just iced it onto the middle of a giant cookie.

As you can see...no method to my madness.
No real theme. 
Just color. Glitter. Glow. Fun.
And as for the cake...well...I made these yesterday and it cut down on the entire messy 
"cut the cake" situation.
No messy plates needed...and the kids just took the rest of their cake home:)

And just like that...the day is done.
Oh it pains me how terrible these photos are:( 
But oh well...still a cute group of great kids.
I am thinking Peyton must have told them to wear crazy socks.
Maybe not.
Now I am tired.
But I am glad we she had a fun day.
Except for the huge bruise on her hip from flying through the air and landing on her bones.

I love reading your blog! You always have unique products and ideas. I would love to know where you found the fabric for the table cloth. I would love to use it in my classroom.
