The Birthday Girl I was doing the party for I didn't know very well. So I started by asking the hostess a little about her. I found out that the birthday girl was very religious, family oriented, she had children and they meant the world to her. I also found out that she wouldn't take well to a party that made fun of her age. She was more shy and really didn't even want to celebrate this milestone at all. So, this was a challenge...but I love a challenge! I came up with the idea of a Classy Birthday Party, full of family photos along with classy desserts and flower arrangements that didn't have any BLACK flowers or any reference to "Over the Hill"! Below are some photo's that were really hard to take because the house was lit by candles and the lighting was really dim...but, you get the idea.
|Every dessert I made I had made these little flags that said something about who the women was (Her Character)!|
|Here were the containers before I filled them with the yummy dessert:)|
|I also made these cute little Greek Yogurts with berries and a touch of honey. I then typed up a sign and called them "Generous" to go with the theme of the Birthday Girl!|
|The Birthday Girl's favorite dessert was Red Velvet Cupcakes so WE HAD to have those!|
|I also made little flower arrangements and had them placed around the room with candles throughout!|
