Detail on a cocktail dress, thrifted for $25, and worn beautifully by my gorgeous girl. Black lace over ecru, with the most divine art deco sequinned detail....a steal.
More photos of her fifteenth birthday party with a Downton Abbey Murder Mystery Theme.
Guests were invited to dress 1920s style, and join in solving the mystery of the recently, and suspiciously deceased, Mary Baker. An interrogation room was set up, and each guest assumed their identity as detailed in their invitation.
Much fun was had interrogating them all, with few guessing who the real murderer was!
Here's the cake. You can see more photos of it here.
Sparklers were used in preference to candles, just for fun. Did you know that the quickest way to light sparklers is with another lit sparkler? Just touch the heated bit where it's 'sparkling' to the tip of the next sparkler. It works beautifully!
The girls went all out with stunning flapper era inspired hairstyles...
...and bejewelled headbands.
Party favours included a pair of handmirrors, painted with pearlised paint and embellished with a single crystal, tied together with lashings of black tulle ribbon...
....and glittering masks.
The girls were utterly gorgeous, singing Happy Birthday in harmony, and embracing the theme of the party with relish!
My daughter laid her pretty head in my lap that night, and said 'Mum that was the best party, and the best cake ever.'
What more could a Mum want?
