So my mom’s birthday is September 23 and she lives out of town. She messaged me that she would be in town on Saturday the 2oth to buy chili and bag it. So I told her I would help her and decided to throw a surprise dinner for her.
My mom doesn’t have a thing so I had no idea what theme to do so I decided to start with the basics COLOR. I realized I didn’t know what her favorite colors were! So I had to ask. She said black and purple.
Now first and most fun to make the birthday banner!
I went to the craft store on a search for cardstock, lucky for me it was on sale 7 for 1$!!! I looked for purple, purple pattern and black pattern. The prettiest purple pattern happen to be FLOWERS! So I chose a purple flower theme!
Next it was time to search for purple flowers and gosh, they were expensive. However as I walked through the flower section I noticed some flower garland that gave me the idea for the ribbon flower garland. I found some pretty ribbon and tissue paper to make flowers. I used yarn from home to tie the flowers on to the ribbon.
The vase was made from an empty praline cookie Container. The boxes are tea boxes. I laid them on the left over cardstock like wrapping a gift. I had some left over scrapbooking stickers I decided to throw on for some wordage. And of course more tissue paper flowers! (the flowers are the most work)
Then to set the table! I went shopping at the dollar store and decided on a purple table cloth. The purple flower paper had white so I chose white plates. Lucky me the dollar tree had the cute zebra plate I thought matched my black pattern paper.
Last I decided to make it elegant by making these little napkin rings. With the last of the scraps of cardstock.. It was a lovely dinner.
