Keira's Sweet Shoppe Birthday

We didn't know exactly where we were going to be, for Keira's 5th birthday. We actually ended up driving back to Houston on her birthday, so we decided to have a little birthday party for her in Dallas before we left. She decided she wanted a Sweet Shoppe birthday party, and it was fun to put together! We were able to celebrate with my family, which was fun since we're never with them for any of our birthdays! Edwin and I were also able to invite and spend some time, with a few of our best friends that live in Dallas! Here are some pictures of the evening.

Paper lanterns, streamers, candy, oh my!
The mini candy bar. I used martini glasses to do this on a smaller scale

Party hats and party blowers, line the fireplace

Party room (remember not to turn the fan on!)
Can't get enough of these lanterns!
The candy truffle; flavored marshmallows, multi colored twizzlers, gum balls, and mini marshmallows gives this some pizzaz! 
The cupcake tier; I added some fun lollipops to each cupcake. Keep the wrappers on, so they can put them in their goodie bags!
