This 90TH BIRTHDAY COLORFUL GARDEN PARTY was submitted by Kenna O’Brien of Miss Party Mom. What a lovely celebration celebrating something so special! You can tell that Kenna loves her husband’s grandmother very much!

Here is what Kenna had to say about planning the party- “This party was for my husband’s sweet Grandmother, Roberta who turned 90 this Summer. My mother-in-law envisioned lots of bright floral garden-style decor mixed with a pool side feel, so I did just that. We rented the pool deck at the Historic Santa Maria Inn in Santa Maria, CA and I was assisted by their Event Coordinator, Stephanie Purple, with set up. This party was incredibly fun to shop for with all of the great colors and girly touches. I really wanted to create something with a “90″ in it to honor such a special age so I crafted (from muffin size cupcake tins) one to be the main table centerpiece. I ombred it pink with spray paint and the entire thing cost me $8 and took about an hour from start to finish. My friend Hannah Henry and I worked on the branches that surrounded it, they are made of of scrapbook paper, cut in to leaves with floral wire sandwiched in between them. This was tedious but costs next to nothing if you have even just small scraps of scrapbook paper lying around!

The graphics really made the table pop, from the pennants to the cupcake picks, Jodi Broglio of Jolio Design really helped me tie it all together with the perfect party package of graphics.

Other special details from the party included our Family Tree table which had photos of Roberta through the years- as well as her family. They were displayed in antique looking brightly spray painted frames and our version of a guest book (frame matting for a future party photo) was also on the table to be signed.

Hannah & I made flower and “90″ shaped sugar cookies for the party favors, I handmade the cake pops and Gina’s Piece of Cake in the Santa Maria Mall did the center cake and all of the cupcakes.”

    Hello I was wondering what is the 90 sign made up of? Can you give me directions to create this. I love the ombre colors. Your party makes me envious. Every girl should have such a beautifully done party.

    Thank you Mary! The 90 is created from cardboard, I hand stenciled the number, the rest of the directions for it are described in the article on this page. When spray painting, go heavy on the dark end of the ombre and lighter on the light end :) I used white spray paint to go over it through the middle to give a good faded look.
