I age well don’t I? Jk. Please don’t tell me I look 60. (Also my mom was blinking… she would be mad at me for posting this picture but unfortunately we only got one shot of the 3 of us! Blast!!)
On Sunday we threw my parents a joint 60th birthday party!!
My dad turned 60 May 18th and my mom is still clinging to her 50s with her big day June 30th.
I put in a lot of work and was absolute THRILLED how it ended up.
The food and decorations were great which was too fun.
And there were a TON of folks that showed up to celebrate my parents.
There were friends from college, from work, from church, family, & family friends. It was great mix of easygoing friendly people and there was a large portion of folks who had “known each other and hadn’t seen one another in 15 years!” (Those crazy P&Gers)
I didn’t get to take pictures of people downstairs which is where most of action was but you can get the hint:)
The party was a blast and my parents had so much fun, which was the most important!!
We had drinks downstairs and did a signature drink for both of them.
My dad’s was a Gin and Tonic and my mom’s was Rum Punch.
And I thought since they had signature drinks… I would do signature drink cupcakes!!!
Gin and tonic cupcakes and Rum Punch cupcakes!! So cute, right?
Since it was Hawaiian there were leis of course, flowers and a lot of folks came dressed in their most tropical attire!
