Here she is, my mom - the birthday girl. To me she does NOT look like she is 75, especially with her tiara I supplied for her birthday party. She seemed to truly enjoy her party, the guests, the gifts, and especially the food. I had spent the week before her party baking and preparing foods. In the end I served Beef Brisket, Shrimp cocktail, Spinach-Feta balls, Macaroni and Cheese, Cheese platter, Veggie and dip platter, fruit platter, and rolls. Additionally there were lots of sweets!
Last week I shared the invitations that I sent to the guests. I used a pink, black and white palette. I continued the color scheme and the princess crown theme through the decorations. Using Teresa Collins Black and White Imagine cartridge, I printed both sides of white cardstock with the crown print. I cut the sheets with Ribbons and Rosettes, to make the large black and white rosettes. I cut pink scalloped centers and added the same glitter crown cut to the rosettes.
Most of the rosettes were double sided so they were wonderful for center pieces on the tables. The exception was the very first rosette - the prototype - was single sided. I ended up using the singled sided rosette in the napkin/plastic ware basket.
Finally, I snapped a quick photo of my mom and my honey, Doug, at her party. She was nervous as the evening began, but she settled down and had a nice evening.
