This New Year's Eve my husband and I hosted his Mother for her Birthday. We had a very intimate dinner of 5 and wanted to make it extra special for her since New Year's typically rules over her day. Here are a few pics from that night at our home and my rules for throwing a fabulous dinner party at home...
|A nice little touch is to print out a Special Menu especially for someones Birthday! This is so easy.. I did it on Word, changed the font and color to a Chocolate Brown, and printed it out on a Thick Cream Resume Paper.|
|I added New Year's Party Hats and Blowers around the table. You can add different things depending on the "theme" of your dinner party. It's always fun to have props:)|
|Always have a dessert! I went with a mini cake from Publix and added a fun topper and candles for the birthday girl. These cute cakes serve around 6-8 people perfectly and it was delish…tasted like a wedding cake!|
|After Singing Happy Birthday to the Queen of the Night...|
I "crowned" her with one of my old Tiaras from my Pageant Days. She loved it! What girl wouldn't right?
~It was truly a very special evening.."Fit for a Queen!"~
