We had another little celebration in our backyard this summer for my mom and cousin's birthday. For this party I let our flower centerpieces create the theme. Bright pink hydrangeas and multicolored polka dot napkins made for the perfect girly setting.
I cannot even begin to explain how ecstatic I am about our hydrangeas. They are growing so well. Using them as the main centerpiece felt so fancy. I joke with my husband about "our next wedding" where I will use this or that new idea. As I was putting out these hydrangeas I told myself that I didn't need another wedding. I get to live it out in our backyard every summer and it is perfect!
I have told you a thousand times, but these paper straws I found on Amazon are my favorite and are the best prices I have seen out there (we are talking like $6 for 144 straws!!!).
I played off of the pink theme with washi tape polka dot flags. These are way easier than cutting out paper flags! I may never cut cupcake flags again!
I love this happy birthday banner I got for my birthday last year. Accompanied by some pink balloons, it made for a lovely food table display.
The sun was just screaming through the trees.
I really enjoy using one long table. I put together two folding tables creating a more intimate setting where everyone gets to be a part of the conversation. I think it's an introvert thing?
The cute birthday girls!
Unfortunately since the nights are so long, it doesn't start getting dark until the party wraps up. I am looking forward to some early fall get togethers this year where we can better enjoy the lights into the evening.
Cheers to long summer nights!
