My daughter hosted an end of the school year Summertime Pineapple Party for her friends. This is a fun, simple party idea & a perfect way to kickoff summer. They were excited to finish their first year of Jr High with a party. She had just a little help from Oriental Trading and our front yard.
Summertime is the perfect time to hang out with your friends, whether you are 12 or 42 there is just something fun about getting together with a group of your best friends and just having a good time. My daughter planned this party on her own, but I did help a little with the invitations, cupcakes, and transportation to the store. She did all the hard work of setting up for the party and I think she did an amazing job as hostess for her friends. (I hung around for support and a little guidance, but at 12 years old…she was a natural.)
