I was planning on showing you all the full party of my big 3-0 a couple of weeks ago so without any further interruptions... here is the complete party.
The event was at my house and I wanted to block off the kitchen to create a more fun atmosphere so I put a white piece of fabric with thumb tacks to create a divider and bought yellow, light pink, hot pink and white balloons and tied them to yellow vases. I then strung a garland that I made of little 30's. It was a perfect place to have people mingle and have drinks!
The garland was so simple. I cut out 30's in all the shades of pink, yellow, orange and white. Then strung them together with a sewing machine. I wanted an eclectic look so I did a random pattern.
Here are the party favors I had for each of my guest that came to my birthday bash. I filled them with bright yellow candies and a little note to each person.
I wanted the dessert bar to reflect my likes and life over the past 30 years. So I included my favorite treats:
mini popcorn balls... I swear I can eat those all day long- every day!
cherry chip cookie sandwiches with buttercream frosting. Very simple to make and delish! Just take two cookies and pipe frosting in between. If you don't have frosting bag and tips to pipe you can take a ziplock bag and cut diagonally at the corner... and tada you have a disposable pipping bag!
I had to include individual apple pies since for about six years I was obsessed with Apple Dumpling and couldn't go anywhere without it!
