Name: Ashni, 10
Location: Oxford, MS
This year marked Ashni's last big birthday party (we have them between the ages of 4 and 10), so it was a big deal for her to choose a theme that she really loved. The one thing that she loves most (other than food) is Janelle Monáe. She loves her style and her music, so it was only fitting that she chose to have a Janelle Monáe themed dance party.We made simple invitations and handed them out along with Janelle Monáe CDs (since most of her friends had no idea who Janelle Monae was). Ashni and all her sisters dressed in Janelle Monáe style (bouffant hair-dos, tuxedo jackets, bow ties and oxfords). We had simple black and white crepe paper and balloons, Janelle Monáe music and a few rounds of Just Dance on the Wii. She and her friends had an excellent time.
Thanks, Adrienne! Readers, see more of Ashni's party here.
