A Sort-of-Kind of Surprise Party

My best friend since about Kindergarten graduated from college and will soon be moving all the way to Florida. As in 17, or so, hours away. I will miss her like crazy but couldn't be more proud of her!

So to celebrate one of my other friends and I decided to throw her a surprise party. It didn't end up being a surprise because someone snitched! That's ok, we still had a blast!

Here are a few of the decorations that I made for her party. She loves zebra (as in she has a zebra purse, dress, swimsuit, and who knows what else!) so of course I used that!

I used Martha Stewarts pom pom tutorial to make these fun pom poms!

These big bows are on each side of the banner. They were actually a pom pom OOPS! I think the zebra tissue paper was to thick. That or I just didn't know what I was doing :)

It's kind of hard to see in the pictures but I made a zebra banner with hot pink paper that says Congrats. I had to turn the right bow cock-eyed because of the door!

We had a delicious cookie cake that was supposed to be zebra. I guess that's their version.
Looks more like a cow if you ask me.

We had a pinata that busted open with ONE wack! I guess they aren't made to be hit with wooden bats...

That's my handsome hubby, Wyatt!

We played washers, such a fun game!

I guess the guys had fun becuase they passed smooth out!!

Amber, I love you and will miss you a lot. I know that you will do great things wherever life takes you.
P.S. Don't forget to wear sunscreen  :)
