Last week Gary and I hosted a little girly birthday party for Marla. The theme was “Marla’s Favorite Things”. She invited a few close girlfriends. We had some of her very favorite things and just had a great night celebrating her!
Marla’s house was already decorated for fall, so I decided to add “sparkly gold” as our theme. I think it turned our GREAT!! Olivia at Joyful Art Designs made the banner, the canvas, and the printables. She totally took care of me and hooked me up with the cute birthday decor!! Seriously…”Thank you, Olivia!!”.
We served some of Marla’s very favorite foods. She’s a girl after my own heart and prefers appetizers over a meal. So…we had little slider cheeseburgers, salad, spinach dip, southwest rolls, and fruit. Delish!
Another of Olivia’s cute printables. 🙂
And…this was our game. I bought six (because six girls were attending) of Marla’s favorite things…fingernail polish, candle, ornament, earrings, gift card, and coffee. Then we played, “Dirty Santa” with the gifts. The ladies loved it! They “stole” gifts and hopefully all ended up with something they were excited to take home. Marla had no idea we were playing this game. Every time someone would open something she’d say, “I LOVE that!”. haha!!
Every party needs some balloons, right?
Marla’s cute house needs another post all on it’s own. But…the game was ready by the fireplace.
Loved celebrating with this girl!! My kiddos and I are so thankful she lives so close. They love hanging with M and I love having her here.
Gary was the only guy invited to the party. 🙂
I took these pictures before we added the food to this table.
Marla requested her favorite cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory instead of birthday cake.
Happy Birthday, Marla!! Hope you had a GREAT night!
