Sweet & Now 16!!!!!!

February 11,
REBEKAH TURNED 16!!!!!

Before I break into all of Rebekah's birthday pictures I feel the need to share a little story behind her theme. The theme for Rebekah's 16th birthday was created 12 years ago! When Rebekah was a little girl of about 4 years old she had a HUGE love for Sweet Sixteen white powdered donuts. We often bought these as a treat for Sunday mornings before church. Well, one day she learned of the name "Sweet Sixteen"! She told us that when she turns 16 all she would want for her birthday was DONUTS, Sweet Sixteen Donuts! As time past we stopped buying these donuts, BUT we never forgot our little girls love of those puffy white powder sugar donuts....or her dream of a Donut Party :)




The party of her dreams.....


Rebekah had a Sweet "16" Donut Party!!!!!


We decorated with red & white and black & white polka dots......


We found a donut tree topper......


The cake was really No cake, and wasn't Sweet Sixteen Donuts....


Rebekah's donut cake was made from Krispy Kreme donuts, you know you must have the very best! This donut cake was so much fun to create!!!


Rebekah was shocked and never thought that we would give her a donut party, I think she was even a little fearful that if we did what would it be like?! She was pleasantly surprised with how her Sweet Sixteen Donut party turned out.


Time to give the birthday girl her gifts, big things come in small packages!


There are Sweet Sixteen Donuts in the red & white polka dot pails on the table, they were used as decorations....of course the littles didn't let them go to waste :)


Make a Wish, and Blow!!!!!


Time for the D-O-N-U-T-S!!!!!!


Our smiling Sweet 16 year old, REBEKAH.....


So sweet....


Yippee so tasty....


We all enjoyed the donuts in place of the cake, and we had 1 donut a day for 3 days! So, this really was a treat!

Rebekah it's so very hard to believe that you aren't still our little 4 year old little girl who loves her Sunday morning donut treat. Now you're our Sweet 16 young lady who we are very proud of. You may have moved on from the donuts, but you'll always remain our girl! We love you so very much!!!!

Happy 16th Rebekah! That cake is great! Of course Krispy Kreme is a favorite. I love the Red/black color theme and the cake topper R is so neat. I saw something like that at Hobby Lobby and just loved it. That was such a sweet story about when she was little. We used to get those sometimes on Sunday mornings before church too when our girls were very little. Your decorations were awesome. Hope everyone is doing good and staying safe after all the wind we have had. Have a good week! Missy

What a clever idea - - but it looks like it would have been difficult to blow out the candles because they were all around the cake! As usual it was fun to see your celebration. You all could have just about made a birthday books and published it with all the idea you have given us.

How special this 16th birthday theme is!!! I love your decorations and the smiles on all their faces! I know your family has a doggy business but I truly think you should be party planners! Although it might take the joy out of it for your family as it would become and "everyday" job.

Happy Birthday Miss Rebekah! May our Lord draw you close to Him this year and you grow much in Christ.
