Mother's Day and a Birthday Celebration

I know it's really late to be posting about Mother's Day, but I wanted to go ahead and document it here. :) If you missed my post about our Graduation Party Decor/Food and a Gift Idea for Grads, click HERE We had a family get together at our house to celebrate Mother's Day and a Birthday. We just celebrated both in the same day. Here are a few pics: 

I love these little metal birthday hats!

I didn't have plates to match the napkins, so I just used these. I did open up a napkin and place it on top of a plastic plate to hold the smaller plates. That way it matched a little. :) I always tie ribbon on top of this plate holder too. I keep the ribbon so I can reuse it.

Here's a full shot of the table.

These pretzel hugs were a huge hit! Recipe coming soon...

I loved using these birthday mints on a cupcake plate.

I put more mints in this glass holder.

I'm so glad I picked this caddy up at Homegoods when I found it. I use it all the time at parties to hold forks and plastic cups. I usually tie coordinating ribbon on the handles. It was originally black and I spray painted it Heirloom White.

I wrapped each fork in a napkin and tied it with a piece of jute. Of course I saved the pieces of jute so I could reuse them. :)

I love this little wooden tray. I spray painted it heirloom white too and use it all the time now. 

Of course I had to put my birthday cake on the welcome sign.

Here's the cake I made. I know it doesn't look fabulous or anything, but you have to bake it in a cookie sheet, so there's not really a pretty way to display it. :) 

It's a chocolate sheet cake with cinnamon and brown sugar. So good!

I thought these flowers were so pretty.

 Here are a few more pics...

Well, I guess that's it for now. Thanks for stopping by!
