60th birthday party ideas

Yesterday I shared with you the vibrant orange and white monogram cake from this pretty summer party. summer2010080-5546998 That cake was pretty much the statement piece of the entire party, but there were lots of other fun decorations, too! The theme was pink and orange, but I added a splash of turquiose here and there just for the fun of it.  It really looked great!  See for yourself: The first impression of a party is always the invitations, so the mood was set with these fabulous pink and orange invitations from TinyPrints.com. 

I love being able to add a photo to the invites…I think it’s such a nice, personal touch! 


I found this adorable pink and orange ribbon and secured it around glass bowls from the Dollar Store. 

It was a great way to make a big impact with a little price tag!

Pink and orange rock candy looked terrific in there.  🙂

I also used ribbons on the flower vases and as a backdrop for the cake table, just to add a punch of color.


Pink and orange wrapping paper served as a backdrop for a photo collage of the birthday girl…another inexpensive idea with big impact!


We also just sat some photos around on the side tables so the guests could take a stroll down memory lane.


Scrapbook paper in fun summer colors was used to make this birthday banner.


Having everyone come dressed for the occasion made for a fabulous photo!  I just love the colors!

The party was a big hit and the birthday girl loved it all!
