A Dressy Dinner for Her Sweet 16

Dinner for six on her 16th birthday

The guests included boys for the first time

Paul and I cooked and served a restaurant-quality meal

And the Gift-Wrapped Chocolate Cake wowed her

Isn’t she beautiful?

We think so.

    How sweet! I’m sure she LOVED the party. I’m new here and thought I would just say hi.

    I have no idea why, but this post brought tears to my eyes! Maybe I’m so happy for your happiness for your beautiful daughter. Maybe I’m thinking back to my parents’ thoughtfulness when I was a teenager. Maybe I’m thinking of my little girl on her sweet 16 (14 years from now!). I don’t know! But I’m really happy after reading this post!
