Eighteenth Birthday Party

As I said previously Darling Daughter celebrated her 18th birthday over the weekend. I love planning parties for her, she gives me a list that includes menu, the colors she would like to use and a few other suggestions. Our original plan was to move a couple of tables outside and have an evening under a canopy of trees in the back yard, but the cold decided to pay us an early visit in the Houston area. Now I apologize in advance to my family and friends in the north who would consider the mid forties a nice warm up, but for us thin blooded Texans, that was chilly enough to change plans and move inside!

She chose a color theme of mint green with gold accents along with a little burlap mixed in. It is amazing what you can do with a few sheets of scrapbook paper. We were able to make her super cute invitations, two bunting decorations, one was personalized. We also found the perfect shade of tulle and used 4 spools in the decorations. We used a roll of wrapping paper down the center of each table layered with burlap. A blue canning jar filled with daisies, Darlings favorite flower on a gold charger. I had hoped to add candles, but I couldn't find them. lol

Silverware was rolled in a mint green napkin and tied with twine. We served the meal on blue granite plates and used mason jars with a mint green straws for drinks. Each person was given a tag with a daisy to add their name to their drink.

We found a package of three paper lanterns at Party City that worked perfectly. The punch cups were personalized with Darling Daughters initial in mint green of course. After gifts were opened and we enjoyed cookie cake and punch, the party moved outside with a bond fire enjoying s'mores and hot chocolate. It was a great party!
