The Candy "Bar" was a magnet for all who attended...young & old.
I got this idea from Bakerella and had my local bakery whip them up.
Disguised as smoothies, printed pink & green T-shirts made a fun favor for the girls.
The favors for the boys were brightly colored take-out boxes filled with candy.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun was the theme of the party. These sassy girls appeared in lots of the little details - like on the smoothie cups and as large near-life sized cut-out decorations.
A framed silhouette of Annie was a great way for guests to send their good wishes.
The desserts were AMAZING!
Here's a picture of my sisters & myself: Allison, Lauren, Me & LeighAnn. It was great getting to see all of them at the same time!

1 diced seasoned rotisserie chicken
1 10 oz can of mild rotel (diced tomatoes & green chilies)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup chicken broth
1 small onion, chopped
1 8 oz package shredded cheddar cheese
¼ bag plain tostito corn chips
Dry taco seasoning to taste (optional)
Chop and sauté the onion with a little bit of the chicken broth and if you like, add a little dry taco seasoning as it sautés. In a separate bowl whisk together the can of rotel (include liquid from can), the can of mushroom soup and the cup of chicken broth and whisk together. Lightly butter a lasagna size casserole/Pyrex dish and add a layer of tostito chips (enough to cover the bottom). On top of the chips, layer on the diced chicken. Add sautéed onion on top of the chicken, then pour on your wet mixture of rotel, soup and broth. The chips soak up all the liquid and once baked turn into a nice soft tortilla crust. Top with the shredded cheese and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 55 minutes. Once out of the oven, let it set 25-30 minutes, then cut into squares and serve.
