This summer my aunt turned 60 and our family threw her a surprise 60th birthday party. I was in charge of decorations, which were mostly provided by Minted. Since my forte tends to be baby showers and kids’ parties, it was fun to do something a little different.
Minted has a huge party decor collection. With being very sick in the first trimester of my pregnancy + flying in to Wisconsin for the party, Minted made it really easy to put together a really lovely 60th birthday party. We had all the decorations shipped directly to my mom’s house and assembled everything there. I also made a few easy elements, which I will share below.
I chose the Guapa party decor collection, which suited my aunt’s decor taste perfectly. I loved the hot pink with the yellows and sea foam green. It was perfect for a summer party.
We combined the Guapa line with pieces from the gold glitter collection and vintage lace. It was so lovely! We used the banners everywhere – even on the deck rails.
We used a vintage lace tablecloth and a variety of banners to create a sweet photo backdrop. Photo backdrops always add a touch of fun and specialness to a party. They also ensure that you get lots of photos with the guests.
We also had a survey asking questions from the year she was born.
Lastly, we printed a big poster (a free download from Petite Lemon) featuring facts about Aunt Sandy, which she loved.
I hope this inspires you the next time you have a party to throw – it doesn’t take much to make it lovely, especially with elements from Minted.
