PARTY DETAILS as told by Kenna

This garden party was for my husband’s sweet grandmother, Roberta, who turned 90 last September. My mother-in-law envisioned lots of bright floral garden-style decor mixed with a pool side feel, so I did just that! We rented the pool deck at the Historic Santa Maria Inn in Santa Maria, Ca.

This party was incredibly fun to shop for with all of the great colors and girly touches. I really wanted to create something with a “90″ in it to honor such a special age, so I crafted (from muffin size cupcake tins) one to be the main table centerpiece. I ombred it pink with spray paint and the entire thing cost me $8 and took about an hour from start to finish.

My friend Hannah of Hannah’s Cookies and Treats and I worked on the branches that surrounded it — they are made of of scrapbook paper, cut into leaves with floral wire sandwiched in between them. This was tedious but costs next to nothing if you have even just small scraps of scrapbook paper lying around.

The graphics really made the table pop, from the pennants to the cupcake picks, Jodi Broglio of Jolio Design, really helped me tie it all together with the perfect party package of graphics.

Other special details from the party included our family tree table, which had photos of Roberta through the years — as well as her family. They were displayed in antique looking brightly spray painted frames and our version of a guest book (frame matting for a future party photo) was also on the table to be signed.

Hannah and I made flower and “90″ shaped sugar cookies for the party favors. I handmade the cake pops and Gina’s Piece of Cake, (Santa Maria) did the cake and all of the cupcakes.
