Hi y'all - I am so excited to share this special birthday with you. Turning 45, for me, has turned into something that I really did not see coming. I am feeling a shift of sorts in life and changing priorities around has been the order of the day. We are getting back to the basics here at the Newell Estate. SIMPLIFYING is our motto!
In the past I have had some gal pals over and we have partied it up!
This year felt BIG to me and I wanted to share it with the ladies and their fellows!
It was the FIRST time that I used an off site location for a party and it was a challenge for me to "let go" of the control of it all. I had a local restaurant caterer it and serve.
I did good!
Theme: Eat, Drink, Laugh, Repeat
I found these napkins at Target last year and loved the message. This is where it all started!
Color scheme: Gray, silver and limeish green
Simply grocery store flowers and limes that I hollowed out made up my centerpieces. The plastic silver trays were from the Dollar Tree.
I had buckets on the table filled with dried split peas (sticking with the green color scheme) and put in question cards to get people talking.
Bar set up with full service bartender.
(nice not to have to "man" the bar)
Some Sweets for the Peeps...help yourself candy and some themed cookies.
The fun: Photobooth
Sing...Sing a song... Karaoke
The Swag: Etched stemless wine glasses with the THEME on them... Eat, Drink, Laugh, Repeat
So blessed to have had so many people there that mean a lot to me!
It was fun and fabulous...
Afterall - 45 is the new 35!
