Black & White 50th Double Birthday

Over the weekend my family came together to celebrate the 50th birthday of my twin aunts, Nel & Lulu. For as long as I can remember, these two aunts of mine, with their wit, humor and mischief, have always been the life of any party. So under the leadership of my cousin Carla, our family members worked together to throw a party fitting for these two.

I was asked to make cupcakes and help set up the cake table. I made chocolate Oreo cupcakes with Oreo cream cheese frosting. I designed personalized toppers for the cupcakes and they were on my favorite cake stand from a Broadway Glam party I did earlier this year.

Carla made these beautiful cake pops and marshmallow pops

The tablescape carried out the black and white theme with a touch of hot pink. I first used these tree centerpieces for a Minnie Mouse party last month. For this party, I used black tissue poms. Carla wrapped the base with hot pink ribbon and added pillar candles on the table. She also hung white poms across the lawn.

My cousin Karren gave these personalized for our aunts. The glasses are inscribed with " Cheers to 50 years" and each of their names.

My aunt Beth ( in the background) bought the delicious cake which was also black and white on the inside. She also made the birthday banner below.

More photos from the party can be viewed on the Facebook page.
