I wanted to incorporate Vegas decor but red, black and white didn’t really feel like my mom. These pastel, sparkle papers were much more her style.
After hunting down old photos with the help of family, I had a collection of four different “eras” of her life: childhood, dating dad, being a mom, being a grandma. I found table tent cards online and decorated the front and back for centerpieces.
My sister ordered the most delicious cookie favors from Milk Jar in Los Angeles and drove them to Vegas. I think there was a mixture of 15 different flavors in this box! Other than the cookies themselves, I was most impressed by their presentation and the gold foil letterpress card.
My mom never wants much for herself and so I thought words of appreciation, memories and birthday wishes from friends and family would mean a lot to her. Working on getting these together now and I will share the compilation of all these notes on a later post!
Working on all of the photos and seeing all of the words and wishes for my mom really shows what a remarkable, selfless and beautiful life she has lived, 60 years young. My mom loves with all her heart and is one of the main reasons us kids have such a great life. I hope she felt honored, appreciated and loved on this special day. It was a party to remember!
