Sweet Sixteen Candelabra

My co-worker asked for my crafty assistance to help with decors for her daughter Ruqaiyah's (Tiffany Theme) 16th birthday.  My challenge was the candelabra for the candle ceremony. It was made with Styrofoam.  I coated it with DecoArt MagiKote I found at Hancock fabrics.  Love that stuff.  Satin white ribbon was wrapped around the sides of the Styrofoam and pinned to stay in place. Various pearl and silver sticks were added to fill in between the letters and candles.  The 'Sweet 16' letters and numbers were colored with paint after covering with Gesso.

 My mother covered and decorated the gift box as well as the other boxes. 
 Here's Ruqaiyah in her first dress.  I called her the 'Princess' as she was going around to greet her guest.
A selfie moment!  Oh how they grow up.  She's growing up gracefully.  
Coming out in her second dress to thank all who came to help her celebrate.  

Her mother watches as she lights her candles.  

SO proud of her. She wants to be a Veterinarian.  Ruqaiyah has volunteered at the Memphis Zoo since last summer and the day after her party she volunteered.
