A Garden Party

Tonight all of the girls at Joyworks celebrated Jill's 50th birthday party outside in my parents backyard.
It was a beautiful evening and enjoyed by all.

Even the squirrels came to party...

We sent up a tent for dining and extra chairs around for a lounge area.

For the a special touch we hung a beautiful chandelier...

Jill likes animal print so we added just a touch to our decor.

Fun Party banner...I went to Lasting Memories for inspiration and to purchase the beautiful assortment of paper.

Thanks Mom for making all the beautiful flower arrangements.

Pretty place setting...

Amy's waiting for the party girl to arrive...if you look closely you will see the bubbles.

Here she is...the birthday girl wearing a crown made especially for her by Shelly.

Sandi and Rita...

Shelly,Luanne,and Jill...

We had a delicious dinner with lots of yummy food.

The presents look so cute in the wheelbarrow.

Every girl loves to open gifts.


Amy made a special trip to Bellevue to pick up New York Cupcakes which are our favorite. She arranged them on a cupcake tree and lit candles all around.

Kay and Mom can't wait to eat a cupcake but first we need to finish the delicious homemade coconut ice cream made by Rita.

Shelly also made this adorable "50" box to match Jill's crown.

Thanks to all the girls at Joyworks for helping us create a magical evening.

Wow! What a fabulous way to escorted into your 50th year! And Jill looked radiant! You all went to so much work. How creative! I so want to know what was in all those presents in the wheel barrow! It should have been in a magazine. Lovely!
