Mom’s 70th Birthday Party Décor
My Mom has always been a fan of all things with ribbons, lace,
flowers and pearls! She also likes to read and drinks a lot of tea and
coffee So for her 70th Birthday party my self and
my two sisters came up with these retro-shabby chic pieces that brought
just the right amount of elegance and femininity to her special day.
We spent a couple of weekends shopping at second hand stores for the
floral tea cups and saucers. I also bought every strand of pearls we could
find for a reasonable cost.
… I am nothing if not resourceful. I was able to borrow several well
aged books from my in-laws collection that went beautifully with our
theme and color scheme. In this pic you can see that I embellished a
standard tea bag with a simple satin ribbon and rosette.
We used decorative place card holders to mark it as the 70th year.
We embellished each of these cards with diamond accents to give
it some festive sparkle. Teaspoons and old lacy or floral hanker-
chiefs completed the look!
Take a look at our gift table to match!
Open Box for cards, Floral pens for sign in book, and a
Victorian shoe for the money tree!
My Aunt makes professional cakes so I sent her a picture of my
prototype of the centerpieces and added that my mom is also known
for her quilting. These are the amazing cakes she came up with. they
were displayed in the center of the room as the focal point and all I can
say is…. WOW! and Thank you to Cakes by Unique Design!
