As I’m sure you’ve noticed I haven’t been posting as much lately. Well, it’s all because I’ve been planning my mom’s 50th birthday party! My mom is an amazing woman and my sisters and I were so excited to celebrate her!

We didn’t want to use any of the normal 50th birthday decorations and decided to go with a stylish theme featuring paisley and flowers in fall colors. I made the decorations for under $100. The highlight of the party was a homemade “photo booth” where guests wrote notes to my mom on a chalk board and then wore fun props for the pictures.

Overall, the party was a blast and I think my mom really enjoyed it! To view more picture from the party click here.
