When my friend hit a milestone birthday a few years ago, I planned the party. I did not want to make fun of her age, because I am a couple of years younger than her. I knew that if I was nice to her, she would be nice to me when the time came. (which will be this year!) We kind of had a duel theme, which was a Garden Party and Spring Chick. (she was not old, but still a spring chicken!)
On the main table we had a pretty vase filed with flower and mini Flower Pot Favors filled with candy. I had found these mini pots at the dollar store in packages of 3 for $1.
We also made several Flower Topiaries to decorate the party area. They were a perfect fit for our Garden Party theme. Notice there is also a little chick in the picture.
I had made a Cupcake Stand using candlesticks and plates from the dollar store to hold the Spring Chick cupcakes.
The following year for her birthday I made her these Flower Cupcakes. They turned out so pretty and would also make a great gift for Mother's Day coming up in a few days.
This year she would like me to make something with chocolate and cherry. I am not sure exactly what I am making yet, but look for it very soon!
