Ivanna's #Instaparty Part 1

By Secondchancesgirl
I believe everyone should have a birthday party at some point in their lives. It has been my mission to make this possible for my loved ones. If you are an avid reader of my blog, you know about Ivanna. If not, Ivanna is Adrian's cousin on his dad's side of the family. I have known her since she was 2 and I consider her my niece. She turned the big 1-0 on Saturday and I hosted a party for her at my house. She is too old for the whole princess/cowgirl/pirate thing so we decided on an Instagram-themed party!
Instagram party
Ivanna is constantly on Instagram so this was the perfect theme. I created her invites:

This was the setup. (Excuse me standing right in the middle. I live in a rented home and the house has these tacky mirrors I can't do anything about!). We kept it really simple since she is a simple girl.

This was her favorite part: a big 10 made out of her Instagram pics. This was a surprise, she had no idea I was doing this. I used the Walgreens Photo app, uploaded the pics and they were ready for pickup in about an hour. Fabulous!

She loves marshmallows so I made these super easy marshmallow pops with giant marshmallows I found at Wal-mart.

I ordered a white cake from the Publix bakery. The bakery called me about four times to make sure my order was right. They just couldn't understand a plan white cake. I love white cakes because you can decorate it your own way. Once again, I kept it simple, a ribbon and some bunting!

I also created these Instagram-themed cupcake toppers. We ordered the cupcakes from the same bakery with the frosting in her favorite light-blue color. I also created the #selfie printable and placed it right next to a photo backdrop I set up for #selfies. 
Instagram party
All Instagram parties need lots of pics!! Here's a pic of Ivanna and all her party attendees. They loved taking pics with the props.

For the party and social media postings, we used #Ivannais10. If you took a pic at the party, you had to use the party hashtag! The girls loved this idea.
