modern sleepover

the-celebration-shoppe-modern-teen-sleepover

When I create an inspiration board, it’s usually one thing that inspires the rest. This time it was these adorable slipper cookies from Family Fun magazine. I just love this simple and yummy (donut hole covered in coconut), yet oh so pretty idea.

From there I thought about my nieces, now teenagers, and what would appeal to them and their friends. My oldest niece recently celebrated her sweet sixteen in hot pink and black bliss, so I’m very confident she will approve of my choices:

The slippers led me down the sleepover path, but these ideas could lend themselves easily to a modern bridal or baby shower too. As always, I hope you’re inspired.
