Celebrating Powell! {The Decorations}

Saturday night we threw Powell an 18th Birthday Bash!

He invited a bunch of friends, and we included family as well!
I knew this might be one of the last "parties" I might actually throw for Powell with friends, so I wanted it to be special~

I had found some black,grey, white striped paper so that became my inspiration for the color theme, and then I threw in orange!

Being a "guys" party...I tried to keep things more white table coverings, no crepe paper ...and NO tissue poms!! :)

I made one of Powell's favorite desserts, Cookies & Creme and put it in individual cups...
we also had LOTS of cupcakes!

I went through a bunch of old photos of Powell, and copied them into black and white and  put them up on our pantry door...of course, his friends had LOTS of laughs!

....and of course, I couldn't help myself..I had to do a candy buffet!
After using the picture that I did for his invitation, I ordered candy cigarettes (good ol' Amazon!)...and then filled the jars with all of Powell's favorite candies!

(stickers are from Powell's Sweet Shoppe...I got these when we made our trip to Boise!)

I had such a fun time planning this party, and loved the way it turned out!
