Aleigha's Sweet Shoppe

For Aleigha's birthday we decided to go with
a "Sweet Shoppe" theme since she loves
anything & everything sweet. I'm so glad we
did because she loved it! I know this post is really
late but my life has been taken over by clinicals and
it seems like I have no time for anything.
Better late than never right :)

Here we are before the party.

Birthday girl with Mamaw & Papaw

Gumball machine made with a flower pot & fish bowl

This little bucket held bags for the candy that said
"Thank you for making my birthday so sweet"
and it also had toothbrushes in it

We made 2 of the dum-dum topiary trees. They
turned out so cute!

Marshmellow pops

We did cupcakes instead of a cake.

I took a picture of the entire Sweet Shoppe table
with the banner & all but there were about 5 of my best
pictures that messed up so this is one half of the table

and heres the other half

The food table: sandwiches cut out like flowers, chocolate
chip cookie dough dip with graham crackers & animal cookies,
& fruit kabobs. We also wrapped the utensils and napkins
with candy bracelets but that pic was messed up also but you can
see them in the bottom right of this pic

Sign that hung on the front door

Lollipops lined the side walk and the entire back patio

Candy hung from the tree and patio

More lollipops

(this pic was taken after most everybody had left and things were moved around)

I'll have another post with the rest of her party!
There were so many pics that I had to break it up.
It turned out perfect and we had 23 kids show up.
I was amazed but our little princess had the best time!
