Our Nicholas turned 14. He chose to celebrate by having a game night with friends.
Here's what we did.
We started with a color scheme. Nic wanted green and blue. I asked him for a food wish list and I set up a dessert/candy/snack bar based on that.
I used a birthday plate (I found at Goodwill) to help with decorating the table. It matched the color scheme perfectly and it has Psalm 115:15 written on it..."May you be blessed by the Lord". We also sprinkled the table with confetti.
Nic asked for cupcakes,(with and without icing), Goldfish crackers, Oreos, carrots and dip, bubble-gum, Skittles and licorice. Olivia and Colin made the cupcakes and Colin also baked some chocolate chip cookies.
We used glass jars and a cake stand for the miniature candy buffet.
We also served Nachos,(in my large crock-pot) and pizza, and drinks. We had several types of soda, bottled waters in a large bin with ice, and sweet & unsweetened tea.
The kids had a lot of fun playing games. We had indoor and outdoor games planned but not long after our guests arrived a huge storm blew in.
Next up we'll be planning Ethan's sweet 16!
