Celebrating 60

My Mama turned 60 on February 20th(last Sunday). We hosted a birthday party/dinner for her on her actual birthday. I have made banners for just about every holiday(that I decorate for) and I thought it would be fun to create a special birthday banner for my Mama. This banner matched the invites I made for her special day. I used lots of new yummy pattern papers from Echo Park, Ellison die cut letters, pop dots and ribbon. The creating didn't stop there, I decided to make little flags out of ribbon. I saw this idea on Elizabeth Kartchner's blog. Scrap ribbon from my stash, buttons, bling and lollipop sticks helped me create these fun little flags. We put them in little vases, on the table and mantle...very fun and festive.








Wishing my sweet Mama a very Happy Birthday! We hope her 60th year of life is filled with love, happiness and lots of fun! It should be off to a great start since my siblings gave her two tickets to see GLEE in concert. It should be a blast.
