Sweet. Sixteen.



Rachel’s sweet sixteen surprise party was one step past ingenious. My sister, the queen of all party throwin’,  wrote a murder mystery, complete with a kidnapping, multiple locations and a cast of crazy characters. Kind of Clue meets So You Think You’ve Got Talent?








Rachel thought we were having her sweet sixteen photo shoot, and planned to do a “Giselle from Enchanted” kinda shoot, because if you knew my niece . . . well, she IS Giselle. 

Instead of me showing for the shoot, she got kidnapped by two knights in not so shining armor, and transported to location #2.




Oh yeah.







Goldie Frocks and Tina Fa-lay.





The guests were divided into teams, given their challenge and put on a bus to a secret location.




First event. Drivin’ Miss Daisy. You get the point.








Next event. Write a commercial using random props. This one was “all I got for Christmas was . . . “





You guessed it. Snakes on a plane.




Sit down, candlelit meal right beside the lake.




And that was just the daylight part.  As dusk turned to dark, they had relay races, paddleboat races, and a  melodrama.  Then they danced the night away under the stars.

More to come. Cause we really are doing the Giselle shoot 🙂
