Claralicious ~ Makeup, Modeling and Mavenistas!

I few weeks ago, my rockstar daughter celebrated her 12th birthday in superchick style!
 
Clara's a makeup maven who LOVES to get her pic taken!  S0 not sure WHO she gets THAT from!  (Looking away while whistling!) 
Selecting a party theme was tween's play!  Get it?!  As in child's play, but she's a tween...!?  OMG I kill me!!!

Introducing...
A Claralisious Event ~ Makeup, modeling and mini mavenistas! 

As is often the case,  we got our creative juices flowing by scheduling a photoshoot with our fave photographer, my girl Gail Bunning from Gail Anne Photography!
 One a personal note... Not sure when it happened, but my baby grew up.  How gorgeous is she?!!!  
(happy yet sad sigh)

OK, on to the PARTY pics!!!

The über talented Kim Stoegbauer
designed Clara's invitation and party circles!  Sooo pretty!
I used the party circles/tags to deck out pretty much EVERYTHING
Check out my custom Hershey Bar Wraps!

Clara's guests took home a fancy favor box filled with lipsticks and glosses
Again, LOVE the simplicity of my TomKat Tags!

The girls sipped on grape "mocktails"!  Now, I MAY have added "Goose" to MINE, but shhhhh!!!

 My purplelicious starpops were fit for the rich and famous!

Check out these gorgeous, handmade marshmallows from Have it Sweet
Oh.  My.  AWESOME!
 They arrived cut into FLAWLESS one by one inch squares and matched our color palette PERFECTLY! 
DEE-LISHHH! 

And hello?!!!  What's a sweets table without Kandy Kones?!  They're only THE hottest new addition to the party deco scene! (WINK!)

There are NO WORDS!!!  
Ok maybe a few... like SPEECHLESS and IN TOTAL AWE!!!  Charynn from Two Sugar Babies is the mastermind behind our incredible "makeup and modeling" fondant cupcake toppers!
We hired a makeup artist to glam up the minis and teach them a thing or two... or 3 or 4!
 
Clearly,  they didn't require much coaching in the modeling department!  lmao
Clara's guest created kickass neckware

In closing, more of ZEE CAKE!!!
Vanilla beans pound cake covered in vanilla buttercream and topped with an entire box of moist powdered donuts!!!

Happy 12th birthday Clara!  Mommy  loves you beyond words.
