Ruth's 1920's themed 90th Birthday Party

Since we moved into our house, my MIL and I have been finding every excuse to celebrate and throw a party.  It's basically only family that's invited, but it doesn't mean we cut any corners.  Our first real party was her mother's 90th birthday party.  The theme was 1920's, and black, green, and gold, and included a three tiered cake, a "look-back" video, and a whole bunch of guests!  

Here is was our Pinspiration:

I am a notorious big spender/procrastinator, and the combination meant we didn't send out invites (and honestly, everyone knew about the party so there was no need).  Here was the invite I would have sent.

Here is our table set up pulled straight from our Pinterest inspiration board.  Angela's idea was to do the wax seals on the napkin ribbons.  It has the initial "R" on it for Ruth.

Here are the incredible favors that Brandy had made for us.  She used a beautiful photo of Ruth when she was younger and had it printed on magnets for all of the guests. Thanks Bran!

All in all it was a huge success.
