A few weeks ago my dad asked if I could help with my moms 50th birthday party. He is not really the party planning type of person so I helped him out a little.
I went with the gold and black theme.
Here is the invitation with the information changed for privacy.
I found the gold 50 confetti in the anniversary section of our local party store.
I made this banner with the perfect black and white striped paper I found at Michaels.
The font matches the invitation.
The gold paper was crinkled and had a great texture also found at Michaels.
I made the banner so that the 50th could easily slide off so it can be used again!
My dad got a bunch of black and white pictures of my mom as a child from my Grandpa.
I stuck gold glitter ribbon to the door and arranged the pictures on the ribbon so that everyone could see!
I made these chocolate cookies and brownies
Since the Seahawks were playing in the super bowl the next day my aunt made Seahawk colored cookies!
My dad bought sandwich stuff as an easy meal since it was an open house.
My aunt also made a Seahawk Jell-O!
And of course the Costco cake!
With the non black and white pictures I stuck them onto another door and added some fun gold gift bows that I found at the dollar store to add some flair!
Here is one of the real reasons I wanted to do gold as a color.
These were originally clear dollar store vases!
I blogged about how to make them here!
