April is always a time of celebration for me. I go from Thanksgiving and Christmas, straight into “Birthday-Palooza”, with one of my kid’s birthdays in the months of January, February, March, and April….Whew! Now that the last birthday has passed, I feel like I crossed the finish line and I can relax for a few months.

My vivacious daughter, Macy, turned 10 this week! We decided to go for a red carpet / Hollywood theme this year! We invited her friends from school to wear their “Best Red Carpet Look”. The girls showed up in style! Greeted by the paparazzi, these 16 ladies rocked the party!

Every 10-year-old would like to see her name in lights!

The table is set for the Hollywood divas.

Guests entered on the red carpet and were greeted by the paparazzi.

Hollywood glam definitely calls for red lips and rosy cheeks! Thus, the makeup station!

Dinner is Served: each girl placed their custom order and the wait staff delivered. Shirley Temples were the hit of the night.
