Black & White Birthday Party

My roommate, Sarah, turned 25 yesterday! As I mentioned before, she made a list of 25 things that she has never done before. Some of the items on the list I have been able to participate with her.... like trying her first sushi, I will be going with her to get her first pedicure, we are going to watch Inception together, so on and so forth. On the list she had "have a themed birthday party". This is where I come in. I threw Sarah her first themed birthday party. The theme? Black and White. We asked everyone to come dressed in back and white.

I got different black and white foods. Megan made Oreo truffles which were the hit of the party. I also made a chocolate cake decorated with zebra print. Streamers, balloons, plates and napkins were also black and white... of course.

I also decided to print off black and white pictures with Sarah in it and form a 25 on the wall. Idea came from Pinterest. P.S. I am doing a REALLY good job of my goal this year to do more things that I pin on Pinterest. Just saying.  I love how it turned out and will probably use the idea again in the future.

I also thought it would be fun to have a little photo booth area. Megan made a birthday sign and had cute black and white poka dot wrapping paper. Sarah went to the dollar store and found some fun glasses and  stuff. Then I just set up my camera on a tri-pod and let people have fun with it. Turned out to be really fun.
There was also a little dance party and a toast to Sarah and well... everyone had a great time, including Sarah, which is what mattered the most. :) Happy Birthday Sarah. Love you.
