Chloe's Zebra Sleep Over Birthday Party



My sweet daughter Chloe is turning seven this week, so we had a zebra-themed slumber party to celebrate.  Here are some photos to commemorate the event.

Chloe raced  home from school and changed into this zebra outfit to match the decor.  I wish I had some of her style and fashion sense!

 I made my first cake using fondant.  It was made from a marshmallow and powdered sugar mixture that was very easy to work with.  If you have been scared to try fondant, you should try it.  It's surprisingly easy!

The girls got to choose their own toppings to put on the pizza.  In the morning, they had smiley face pancakes with scrambled eggs for hair.


I made little "raquets" out of paper plates and craft sticks that the girls used to bat balloons around to each other.  We also decorated pillowcases and did freeze dancing in the dark with glow sticks.  The girls also just had fun playing their own silly games...until 1 AM!




Happy Birthday Chloe!
We love you.
