Birthday Party #68

The Fish is turning 14 and she could think of only one direction for her party to take- that's right, ONE DIRECTION! Like, HARRY STYLES! O. M. G!

Yup. We've got a Directioner in the house.

Tuna baked 1D cookies and we slapped some buttercream frosting on and finished them up with some sparkly black gel.

Of course, there was cake. It's been a long minute since I've decorated a cake and I've never ever worked with fondant before, but this cake got a passing grade from the birthday girl.  

I molded some chocolate and white candy hearts for fun. One lovely birthday guest declared that the chocolate ones "had a LOT of cocoa." Bless her heart. That was not cocoa- I burned the chocolate. (I know, I know- how exactly do you burn chocolate?! Look folks, I'm exhausted. I don't really know what happened. It looked fine when it came out of the microwave. Yes, I microwaved it. Stop judging me!)

I did find these really cool printables over at Anders Ruff. Tuna helped sticker a few pounds of Hershey's kisses for the party favors. (If you don't have a teenage girl around to help with party preparation, I highly recommend recruiting one.) 

As we were watching the One Direction movie, This is Us for the better part of the party, we used the printable for movie candy boxes and covered Fish's fave- Reese's Pieces. 

The party wouldn't be complete without a photo booth.

And...because we're gluttons for punishment we love our girl, we invited three teenage girls to sleep over, on Friday the 13th, with a full moon above. It sounded like a herd of bison were settling in above our bedroom in the late hours of the night.
