Fabulous 50th Birthday Bash....

I had the pleasure of working with a dear friend in creating a 50's themed birthday party for a client. We worked on this event for 3 months making calls, researching and putting our creative flair to this event.
We hired Ruby's Diner to make dinner for each guest that attended the party. Also, Ruby's made unlimited shakes for the guests as well. What a big hit it all was!
The greatest part...we were asked to work the event and dress the part. I LOVED my outfit!!
I was also hired by my friend Amber to make a dessert table as well as a candy buffet.
Thank you Amber for giving me the opportunity to work with you and create such a great event!!

This is my dessert table with consisted of...chocolate cupcakes filled with cherry filling and topped with vanilla buttercream and a cherry on top. Also, chocolate cupcake pops and sugar cookies with an edible image. Image was designed by my friend Amber.

Cute record signs were made by Amber.

Fun 50th birthday cake.

I made these cute cupcake pop stands out of candle sticks and actual records found at a local antique store.

Sugar cookies

I spent a few hours researching candies that were popular in the era. What great candy I came across. We had Waxed lips, Mary Jane's, Lemon Heads, Fire Ball's, Abba-Zaba's to name a few. Each place setting contained a small coca-cola glass which was given to each guest to place their candy in at the buffet.

We ordered a checkered dance floor which really made the party pop.

Tables were decorated as a diner theme. Each table contained a napkin holder, condiment holder and a straw holder. Amber then made music note napkin rings, menus and the small coca-cola glasses were at each place setting as well.

We ordered many cute props to add to the event.

A soda-jerk was hired. We even had Ruby's making ice cream shakes for each the guest.

I'm going to post some more pictures of the table settings and guests.
What a great party!!!
