Sensational 60th Birthday Party

I can't resist a good party!  

This one was celebrating a super fabulous lady {my mom!} turning the big 6-0!  I started with a palette of black and white.  For a pop of colour, I went with bright dandelion yellow.  I used faux orange-yellow chrysanthemums to add some colour.

For the food, I chose her favourites that would {mostly} fit the colour scheme:

- regular and vanilla oreos
- black licorice
- coconut meringues
- buttered popcorn
- crispy crunch angel food cake with whipped cream and mandarin coulis
- impossible pie (coconut custard pie)
- single serve veggies and dip 

Because she had so many out of town friends who could not make the party, I requested that they send in a note or letter.  All the well wishes that came in by email got printed onto stationery that I designed and posted on the wall or placed on a table.  I also did the coordinating sensational 60 signs, popcorn cones, bunting signage, and tiny circular 60's.

All in all, it was a wonderful night full of well wishes, yummy food, and longtime friends!
