Birthday | Baby is 70!

When E asked me to help her out prepare for her Mom's birthday celebration, I said yes without hesitation. I was, in fact, very excited about it. We met a couple of weekends prior to the party to discuss decors, flowers, favors, and just about anything. Oh, I love birthdays! And I love any occasion that makes people happy.

E's Mom, Baby, turned 70. It was a celebration of an amazing life and a gathering of family and friends. I finally met E's siblings and nephews and nieces. Such a good-looking family! E's sister looks like a movie star, I kid you not! Everyone was so nice, too!

The party was held in one of Valle Verde Country Club's halls and it was filled with lovely things and happiness that night.

Sharing some photos here and more photos over at Facebook.


Happy colors of peach, pink, fushia, and bright green.


Balloons everywhere!


Every party should have good food (yes, food was delish)! Oh, maja blanca, I miss you! :P


Iced tea!


I love the colors in this photo! These three sneaked out of the party to go to the photo booth! LOL.
This exact moment I took this picture, the birthday celebrant was being called back
because her grandchildren was going to show a surprise video for her.


Watching the videos her family prepared for her.


This is my favorite photo of the night -- she looked spontaneously happy. :)


My new friend A who looked very pretty that night and her gorgeous Mom, C. Thank you, C, for the batteries! :)


Talent runs in the family.


The cupcake favors on the left; and Lola Baby and her apo, E, on the right.


I kept telling E that night what good looking family she has!


This is E -- one of my favorite people on the planet. :)

Pin It!

A heartfelt thanks, Ai. Thanks. most of all, for your constant reassurances (and patience!) in steering the party through despite my constant panic and indecision! You've rescued the party many times over, starting off with THAT mad dash to get invitations printed at record speed! Then color theme, and the flowers, and the backdrop design, and the rest.

And now, there are these beautiful photos to remember the night by: a happy celebration, with all of us together like this.

Thanks for being part of this special moment. My family and I are grateful, and lucky to have you on our side. - E.
