Mom's 70th Birthday!


This past weekend in Connecticut we celebrated my mom's 70th birthday! While we love to throw a big party, she wanted to keep it a small intimate celebration with just the immediate family. That however didn't mean that we didn't plan a few personal touches to the weekend to help make this special occasion a little extra special.  Since I got to be behind the planning, I worked with an artist to create a autumnal watercolor crest with our mom's initials in it. Since she is more known as Oma {German from Grandma} these days I used that in the birthday message.

When the family checked in I had monogrammed guest bags waiting on the beds filled with some of our mom's favorite snacks as well as some miscellaneous items in case anyone forgot the essentials.



Inspired by my favorite gifting company, I created three of these totes for my family.




The table centerpiece was created by Winston's of Greenwich. It is called the "Summer Berry'. 


Gifts were wrapped in equally bright paper in an English rose print from Paper Source


The seating was organized with white agate place card holder with each family members name written in white ink. Perfect for reusing for the holidays or making a coaster set out of. 


Finally, we put together a video of for her that included lots of happy memories from the past 70 years with recorded messages from friends and family sending her birthday wishes! Happy Birthday Mom, we love you!
