I've been holding back on my "weekly" Pinterest posts because I was busy planning my Mom's surprise 60th birthday party. I had a nice Springtime luncheon with our family for her. She was very, very surprised! I was so happy to bless her in that way. Pinterest comes in, of course because I used many ideas from Pinterest to make her party extra special, from the menu to some of the decor. Here are some photos of the extra special party!
|I used a lot of vintage table cloths and rose china for the tables.|
The first surprise...
(Skip to 1:10 for the "Surprise!")

I also replaced the pasta bake the menu suggested for Juan Pollo's potato salad (which is delicious!). This way, I was able to focus on the other sides like the roasted asparagus and Brussels sprouts and the spinach-strawberry salad. YUM!
My mom and I!
I love to use chalkboards. This time, I used one for a menu and one for a birthday sign.
Flowers always look great in pitchers!
And in Mason jars!
The butterflies were used at my wedding reception around the cake table. I was glad I could bring them out again! The wooden blocks on the wall spell out "Happy Birthday." The were made a while ago by my father-in-law and they can spell out several different things. Very cool!
