Patricia's Sweet Sixteen

 A colleague of mine has a daughter who is turning sixteen. She has spent a long time contemplating the perfect day -- car service from New Jersey to Manhattan, a lovely afternoon at Madame Tussauds, followed by lunch at Carmine's, a fantastic Italian favorite. Now when it came to her invitations and favors, I had some ideas of my own.

First, of all, Patricia's favorite color is red. She is a modest girl-- not a big fan of flashy, glittery, pink things, unlike myself. So I came up with an idea of combining her love of the color red and the theme of Madame Tussauds, the wax museum featuring celebrities and stars.

 For the invitations, I chose a simple layout with little glittery stars and white ribbon, and backed them with red cardstock. I included a "Parental Information" card, since the girls would be traveling to NYC without their parents. I made sure to include information about where the girls would be at all times, noting that they would be encouraged to call throughout the day.
