60th Birthday Party Ideas

My mom celebrated her 60th birthday this past weekend and in her honor we celebrated with a wonderful party.

I created these small purses with my Cricut and used the Forever Young cartridge... purses cut at
3 1/2" so that I could get 2 purses per 12" sheet.  The paper is a g.c.d studios designers paper from the cosette collection that I found at Michael's on sale for $.19 a sheet.  The flowers were cut with a flower punch from Martha Stewart and emblished with a small rhinestone.

I created for her a Money Tree and on the branches I placed bows and scallop circles with the number 60.

Also, we created a Sweets table which was very tempting not to eat it all up before the party started.
We made Tamarind covered apples... which are absolutely delish.  With those we also made candy coated apples, cupcakes, chocolate fountain for strawberries and marchmellows...pretzels, hot cheetos, candies' galore.

It was an amazing party and my mom's joy was priceless.  I am blessed to have a wonderful mother in my life.

Thank you for visiting.. hope these ideas help you too.
