Newsome's 50's Sock Hop

I was asked to help with Newsome's summer party.  It is a BIG party with 900 guests invited.  The family picks a theme each year and Karen asked me to help with some decoration ideas.  They chose a 50's Sock Hop theme this year which was very easy and fun to work with.

We ordered two of these big balloon ice cream sundaes by the entrance to the party.
The tables were decorated with these fun carnation ice  cream sundaes!  We ordered old vinyl records on ebay!

I also made some fun banners out of old 45 records and hung those in the food area.  The food was catered by Buster's BBQ and was yummy.
I loved the fun 50's themed sugar cookies.

The carnival ice cream cart made an appearance and was perfect for the root beer float station.
These cute banners were scattered around the party and were used to rope off the fun game areas.  We had hula hoops and jump ropes.

There was cotton candy too and I had to have some!

Tessa Turns 21!

This was one of the few birthdays that Tessa hasn't been home for - I think maybe only the second. She is working as an intern in NYC as part of her PR program.

After our week at the beach, Tessa, Cali and Hannah flew out to NYC and Kat Matthews met them there.  They had an amazing time and it was fun that they were able to be there on Tessa's birthday to celebrate with her.
They did a good job of spoiling Tessa for her birthday.  They found one of the few party supply stores in NYC and loaded up on goodies.

They had a fun picnic/party in Central Park to celebrate.

So glad these girls were there to celebrate and take care of Tessa on her birthday since her mom couldn't be there!  Hard to believe my baby is 21 years old.
