Here is my mom on her 85th birthday! Although the festivities were to happen the next day, I felt we needed to do a little celebrating on her actual birthday, so I took her to lunch at Baker Street Bar & Grill for a hamburger and then we did a little shopping at La Centerra. We had a wonderful time and stumbled across some amazing freebies from the new coffee shop at La Centerra, which was having its grand opening! We're still laughing about that!
These were the centerpieces that went on all the tables.
The pink and white candy was a perfect decoration!
Using old pictures of my mom in vintage frames was a great way to decorate the tables! The vintage trunk was a great place for everyone to put their birthday cards in.
We had three bouquets of beautiful pink and white flowers, one for each table, which added an elegant and feminine touch to the tables.
People are starting to arrive! This is my sister-in-law, Janece. You can see my sister Pam and her daughter Kim behind the cake table. We had four dozen balloons, which made everything seem festive and bright!

This is my daughter Haley serving Champagne punch! The punch was composed of pink lemonade concentrate, white cranberry juice, champagne, and orange liqueur. It was soft pink and bubbly - and delicious! We also had a coffee bar, pink lemonade, and bottled water.
My mom gave a speech halfway through the party to introduce her family members.
HAPPY 85TH BIRTHDAY, MOM!
