Asian Theme Birthday

10.15.2016 || A long time family friend's daughter was turning 13 and she wanted help with their Asian theme birthday party. We researched the internet and ordered items from overseas since we had time. I always check and compare Aliexpress, eBay, Amazon, Wish app and google for the best deal...a lot of these sites are coming from China so use them with caution. My friend's home already had an Asian inspired theme and we were able to use some of her decor.
