My Sister's 40th Birthday Party

I spent weeks preparing for my sister's 40th birthday party, which was Saturday. I think everything went pretty well, except for me needing to go to the emergency room to fix my finger that I nearly cut off while trying to trim the ends off of some flowers. Oh well! I will survive! I think everyone liked my poofs (nod to Martha Stewart) and my mini chalkboards.

I wanted the colors to be bright and cheerful, to match my sister's outlook on life. She is a beautiful woman who is classy, elegant, and fun and I really wanted the theme of this party to reflect those qualities. I am so proud of my sister! She has accomplished so much in her life. She is a devoted sister, daughter, friend, wife and mother and she is also pursuing her PhD in Psychology.


  1. Everything looks great! Love the chalkboards! You worked really hard, I can tell!
    ouch! I hope you're feeling better by now.
    Happy birthday to your sis!

  2. Wow!! It looks incredible! I especially love the absence of black balloons and tomb stones!!! :-) Those black board markers are fantastic. Did you make those??

  3. LouAnne, thanks for stopping by. Yes, I made the blackboard food markers. I bought a package of wooden plaques from Michael's , primed them and painted them with chalkboard paint. Now I can use them again for the next party.

  4. I bet you couldn't wait to display those chalkboard labels, so cute! Good for you!

  5. I love how your chalkboard labels turned out.
