Surprise 60th Birthday Party! Part 2

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009




Here is another detail from Marilyn’s party that I wanted to share. Marilyn is an extraordinarily generous person and as a way of showing our appreciation we created this book as a keepsake and gift for the birthday girl! Each member of her immediate family shared a fond memory of her. I collected each of the stories and layed them out into this book with coordinating photos from her past. Additionally each of the guest sent in a short memory or birthday wish along with the RSVP card and each of these were placed in envelopes at the back of the book.

As a special bonus I’ve included a PDF for the pin flags I shared with you yesterday. Just print onto your favorite paper, cut them out, then glue or tape them onto pins and enjoy! Could also be used on skewers, straws, stir sticks, bags… the possibilities are endless and can add the perfect finish to your party decorations!



In case you missed the link yesterday, you can find directions for the pin cushions here. Cheers!
