My Nanny's 80th birthday is Saturday and the Farley family is getting ready! I didn't call my Nanny for an entire week in fear I'd give the surprise away, but yesterday I missed her and had a quick question for her, and then said, "I can't wait til Lauren gets here Thursday!" - Nanny said, "Lauren!!??" oops I quickly said "meant Danny!" Yikes! Geez! I think she believed it!
(Lauren lives up in Nashville and Danny lives in Tallahassee, which in much closer to Tampa)
So over the past month I've purchased 6 Ball Mason jars (so expensive - mostly the shipping), I've collected a zillion paper doilies, purchased yellow/white string, bought 10 hula hoops, got my 1950's iPod play list ready all for my sweet Nanny's 80th birthday!
Here's the doily garland! I have a bunch of white Christmas light that will hang with the garland! I'm pre-making the garland because the day of the party it will be a pain to put together! Plus there will be so much more to do!
We are using the blue mason jars as center pieces. They will be filled with big yellow roses! I ordered about 250 roses! I can't wait to see everything put together!!
I found yellow hula hoops for the hula hoop contest!! It's all coming together! A family friend is making the food - ton of tasty cuban food! I'm just so excited!
I can't wait to see my Nanny's face!!! Hopefully my big mouth family and myself can keep it a secret til Saturday! ;) Seriously it's going to be tricky!Pin It
