this weekend we surprised my momma with a 50th birthday party!
it was so much fun. family & long time friends were there to celebrate my mom's big milestone. she's the spunkiest, brightest, most thoughtful woman i know. instead of the typical "over the hill" decor, we decorated with a bit of handmade & lots of sparkle.
i had a blast putting together the decor for the party, including these bouquets. i purchased the flowers from sam's club & added a few succulents from our house plants (simply hot glue vintage ribbon to a mason jar to get the same look).
i loved making these paper flags. i used card stock leftover from other projects & hot glued them onto wooden sticks.
i made the pom pom flowers, too. you can purchase them from steph loves ben in a variety of stunning colors.
i also made cute little cupcake toppers for her cupcakes. such a simple projects! using a paper cutter, i cut out the scalloped circles. i stamped "50" onto the circles & hot glued them to toothpicks. bless the hot glue gun! can i get an amen?
my sister-in-law made the cupcakes & they turned out great. carrot cake with cream cheese frosting... delicious!
we added a few more handmade touches (the garland at the top & the glittery 50) and added old photos of my mom to the table. it was a wonderful time filled with family & friends, good food & sweet memories.
i love you, mom! happy 50th birthday! (she doesn't look 50 at all!!!)
