Reanna's Secret Garden Birthday

It was one of my best friends birthdays this past friday and I decided that I wanted to throw her an intimate garden style birthday dinner party. I asked her to give me the names of her 12 closest girlfriends and that I would do the rest...

Here are all of the details:

I made favor boxes for each setting... This is the birthday girls favor box. She loved the dove charm...

I hung pictures of her and everyone coming to the party in the trees that surrounded us...Each ornament was made from Scrap-book paper, photos, and stickers...

I placed mini cupcakes from Heavenly Cupcake at each place setting.

I had everyone write a message to Reanna... Their message could be words of wisdom, words of encouragement, love notes, favorite moments, etc...
Then I had them hang it in the trees and then through out the night one at a time each girl would get up and share their personal message with Reanna in front of everyone and then hang it on her Wreath of LOVE... which you will see it below!

Gerber Daisies are her favorite flower so I tried to incorporate them as much as possible!

Black and White shot... Classy!

I used light pink roses to add the soft tea/garden touch to the table.

This is the Wreath of love... after each girl wrote a message and then read it aloud to Reanna they tied it onto this wreath which she got to take home at the end of the night as her birthday gift! I placed a butterfly at the top and two little birds in at the bottom just to add special touches...

The Birthday Girl!!

All of us...

At each setting their was a mini cupcake, favor box with charm sewed on, and a gerber daisy.

Happy 24th Reanna! This was such an amazing night and I know that Reanna knew how much she was loved... it was the perfect girlie dinner party. LOVE YOU!
