As you may have read, Drew’s grandmother just celebrated her 90th birthday! 27 family members traveled to her small town of Wilson, North Carolina for 3 days of fun. Drew’s mom Janice, designed the decor for the big birthday party on Saturday night. After finding some cocktail napkins she loved, she decided on a peacock feather theme. It was a festive, colorful but elegant way to dress up Ruthmary’s beautiful home for the party. Cousin Jen of SkippingStonesPhoto.com took these stunning pictures.
A poster sized image of Ruthmary in her 20’s greeted guests in the entryway. We made her this peacock crown to wear during her birthday ceremony. The high priestess of elegance!
All the ladies in the family had a peacock touch to wear made by Janice. I think little Della Ruth stole the show with her peacock feather headband.
A gorgeous orchid arrangement and some vases of peacock feather to brighten up the rooms.
Frosting feathers decorated the pretty cake which had one chocolate layer and one carrot cake layer! The birthday girl had chocolate (I had both.)
Drew and I had a 90 stamp made and we stamped paper coasters from Etsy with pretty colored inks from Paper Source. These were strewn around the house to save the furniture from condensation off champagne and bourbons. Everyone in the family contributed to the party in some way (shuttling flowers, decorating, plating appetizers, massaging the birthday girl, countless grocery store runs) making it a love filled evening she is sure to never forget.
