Party Fun

2 1/2 months of party planning paid off! With her husband's blessing and $$ I have been in high party gear since December prepping and planning for Mari's 50th Surprise Party. It was a lot of work and sneakiness, but well worth it. Mari blesses the socks off everyone she knows and it was finally her turn to be on the receiving end.

Every pampered birthday girl needs her own monogrammed Spa Robe!

I made fancy spa slippers and comfort warmers and included yummy soap in the Gift Bags.




Guest made there own bath salts from the recipes provided. What an indulgence!

Spa Water


A big shout out to those of you who helped me throw the Birthday Girl off the trail by responding to my fake party invite. She was completely surprised. Yeah!

In the end it was Mari's dear friends who flew in for the special occasion that really made the day!
