I was talking to my mom on the phone discussing the details of Griffin's Surprise 16th Birthday Party. She asks, " Have you thought of a theme?" Now I am a big theme girl when it comes to parties. Usually, I have a theme before I have anything else in mind. When I grow up(hehe), my dream(in my perfect little world) would be to be a party planner! For this particular party that was not the case. I guess since it was going to be out of town, I wasn't quite sure what I could pull off. I was thinking more along the lines of throwing things together, hoping it falls into place and he is surprised. My mom is like me( or should I say it is the other way around!). She was not going to let this party go without a theme. She suggested the "Country Theme". I giggled and told her to have fun with it. I knew I would be lucky just pulling off the guest list, arrangements, food and entertainment!
Boy did she do a good job!
She had hats, bandanas, hay bails and even a place for a photo opportunity.
A few of Griffin's friends from Pratville.
We even arranged for Carmel to bring a couple of Griffin's friends from home to the party.
Finally, I was able to grab our family to get a picture!
Can you tell who the cowgirl is in our family?
Or should I say the "Most Wanted" girl in the South?
Next up.......see what grub this cowgirl and all the other guest chowed down on.
