A Surprise Party


My mom turned 50 years old today.  To commemorate this milestone I decided to throw her a surprise (ladies only )luncheon.  The Posh Pauper is one of my her favorite boutiques in town and the garden outside can be rented for Garden Parties.  It was a great day and I think that she enjoyed herself and was extremely surprised.

DSC_0282 The tables were set with china on a polka dot place mat and iced tea glasses. 

I found the polka dot place mats at the Dollar Tree along with the ice tea glasses.


The table decorations were orange flower pots with old fashioned candy and metal flowers.


there were wild flowers and bright colored table clothes.


Crab Sandwiches, Turkey roll ups, fruit salad, and an assortment of Organic sparkling drinks.

DSC_0287 The birthday girl received very many thoughtful gifts from her sisters, mother, mother-in-law, and me!


My favorite wrapping job was done by The Posh Pauper!


This cute package had little garden ornaments on it!


One of her favorite gifts was this lawn ornament, it was given to her by her (five) sisters. She also received a very cool angel from them (she collects angels).


Overall I think that mom had a very good time! Thanks everyone for coming, it really was special!
