Send in the clowns...I had a birthday!!

Hey guys!! I just turned 11 at the end of June (the 27th, to be exact) and last weekend I had a super fun carnival party! I wish you all could have been there to celebrate with me, it was so much fun!

All of the invitations came with little tickets the guests brought in order to be admitted to my carnival.

Let me show you around!

We hung up a striped fabric outside to be a nice background.

Lots of carnival themed threats!

A delicious cake...

and lots of games!
Erika and Annie try to guess how many M&Ms are in the jar -
How many do you think there are?

While they put in their guesses, the rest of us had a 3 legged race!

Jayda and I had a great plan to win - we kept practicing - "inside, outside, inside, outside"! We are a great team!
But then the actual race began and I'm not sure what happened...
Lanie and Kennedy sailed right past us and by the finish line.

Where did we go wrong?
Next we played the duck pond. We had to race our rubber ducks across the water, using straws to propel them.
 My favorite activity at my party was the photobooth! We had lots of silly props for everyone to play with - Time for presents! A cowboy hat! And boots! Don't I look stylish? One present left.. Wow!! What an adorable owl pillow for my bed! Only one thing left to do now, and that's cut the cake! Everyone gathered around and began to sing, "Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to yooooou, Happy Birthday dear Piper! Happy Birthday to you!" Sharing cake with friends is the best part of my birthday! What is your favorite thing about your birthday?

  1. I love hanging out with friends! I love your dress, Piper--where did you get it? Quite stylish, and perfect for a birthday! It was recently my doll's birthday, but I haven't had time to post about it.

  2. Piper! What a fantastic birthday you had! I love the carnival theme that you chose; you and your Mama are so creative. I think my favorite activity was the Photobooth activity - your photos turned out so silly! I love the props you used. I actually did something similar for a past birthday party, but my photos didn't turn out so great. I love your dress and hair, by the way! You look stunning, as usual.

    I guess my favorite thing about my birthday is getting to share the day with my twin sister, Juliette. I haven't been able to do that for a while, so I'm looking forward to my next birthday (which is coming up very soon - August 9th!). Like you, I also love getting to spend time with my friends, and I'm not going to lie - presents are great, too. ;)

    Happy Belated Birthday!

  9. Piper, it looks like you had a great time! Birthday parties are fun, aren't they? Your party looked fantastic, you had a great theme. The cake also looked really good, and I am a girl who loves her cake! That orange frosting was a lovely color; very cheerful. Who had the closest guess for the M&Ms? I'd love to know! Great photos, by the way. You all look wonderful and silly. Anyway, I'm glad you had a good party with your friends, and a happy belated birthday!

  10. Happy Birthday Piper!

    Olivia was so envious of your bike, from your last post, that we have been scrimping and saving and ours finally arrived today. Of course she will share it with McKenna and everyone else. Your cake looks delicious! What a fun party! Jennifer's birthday is Tuesday. We will have to ask her what kind of cake she wants.

  12. Happy (belated) birthday Piper!

    That party looks like it was sooooo much fun! It all looks awesome but I have to say, the props in the photo booth were AWESOMELY awesome. It's to bad you didn't win the three legged race. I've had that happen before... It looks like you had so much fun at your party!

  21. Dear Piper,

    Happy Birthday! I'm commenting under my mother and aunt's names. I'm a doll named Dorothy Rose. I really like your blog, and like everyone else says, I agree that the photos of you are very professional! My mother wishes she were that good!

    I love your birthday party! Your dress was so pretty, and all the decorations, food and games were very exciting and real! I'm sorry you didn't win the 3-legged race--maybe next time!

    I think my favorite thing about birthdays is celebrating them with family!

    Have a great day!

    Dorothy

  25. Wonderful party piper! I have to share my birthday with my three brothers. Were not triplets, but Phil and I were born on the same day just a year apart and Chase was born two days before us. So we all have a birthday party together. :)
    Hopefully my girls will have as good a birthday party as you did! :)
