Recent Creations } 50's Inspired Invite | Part 2

And now Part 2 of the 50's Inspired 60th Birthday Bash ...

Party was held at La Provence in Roseville, Ca. I cannot say enough good things about the staff there or their onsite event planner Raquel! Food, beverages, service, atmosphere - perfect.

I wish I could have grabbed a few pics of the food - mini everything! Corn dogs, sliders, fries, onion rings, milkshakes, pot pies all reminiscent of a 50's diner. We had made little tags for all of them similar to the ones pictured above for the candy tags. Delish cupcakes from Cupcake Craving where a hit.

Balloons everywhere with 50's tunes playing in the background. Costumed guests in their best 50's get-ups. From poodle skirts, to greasers ... so much fun! The decor: a fab candy buffet, life-size cut-outs of James Dean and Marilyn Monroe, giant strawberry milkshake out of balloons, a balloon canopy and pictures from the first 60 years of the guest of honor papered the room.

Ooooh and there was a photobooth too! Guests took pictures and put them in a guest book with well wishes for the birthday girl. Adorable idea.

Pictured from top: 1. James and I share a moment, 2. The candy buffet with selections like Mike & Ikes, Pixie Stix, Bit O' Honey, Candy Cigarettes, Lemonheads, Abba Zabba and more, 3. Take home paper bags for treats, 4. Sample Candy Buffet Tags, 5. Pixie Sticks, 6. Balloon Decor, 7. The Uber-Surprised Guest of Honor, and 8. Favor CD's with hit tunes of the 50's.

A great time was had by all!
