We had a birthday party for my mother-in-law at the end of July. It was a delightful event and she loved it, which is the most important thing. I had a grand time getting ready for it. Here is what I did:
|I made a cake! The cake was a famous chocolate wafer cake. Its old fashioned, sweet and has lots of good memories for my family. I made another one here.|
The decor. I made tissue paper flowers and hung them throughout my dining room. I got the idea from my pinterest page.
More of the tissue paper flowers.
Here are some real flowers. I bought the fabric on sale(yay!) and plan to repurpose the tablecloth as napkins for her as a reminder of her special birthday.
My helper is in there somewhere.
The table. I used cut fabric for the tablecloth. The plates are great paper plates from Target. I had been eyeing them for awhile. There were a watercolor pattern. I am glad I finally got to use them! The chandelier has ribbon draped around it.
We all loved the cake!
I shaped the cake into a circle. I used flowers I had already arranged and put them in the center. The mint was cut from my garden and used as an accent. It also leaves a nice flavor behind.
One more of the cake...
Hope you enjoyed our party. We did:)
