Surprise 60th Birthday Party! Part 1August 11th, 2009
I’m thrilled to finally be able to share some of the details of my Mother-in-Law’s surprise 60th birthday party that I’ve been helping put together for the last few weeks. For someone that deserves it the most, this was such a fun event to help plan!
Pictured above are the invitations that I designed just for the event. Since Marilyn is an avid and brilliant quilter I decided to use sewing as the theme. I created the pattern by referencing traditional quilting patterns and added the needle at the top for some detail. Peridot is Marilyn’s birth stone so I tried to incorporate the pale green throughout as well.
To continue with the sewing theme each guest received a handmade pin cushion. Thanks to my husband and my own mother we managed to sew all 40 of these in 2 days! It was a ton of work but everything turned out beatifully and I think she was genuienly surprised. Happy Birthday Marilyn, lot’s of love! xoxo
Check back tomorrow for some more details and a freebie!
