A couple of weekends ago we threw my sister, Mari, a surprise birthday party.
As we were in the beginning stages of planning, my brother-in-law (my sister’s hubby) suggested we do a “Friends” theme. My sister is addicted to the show, so it was a perfect idea!
However, I am not exactly the professional party planner, so I enlisted the help of a friend, Alicia She is pretty much a party expert and she loves Friends as much as Mari does. If it wasn’t for her ideas and help, the party would’ve never come together like it did. All of the ideas, from the food, the frames, the decor, everything, came from her.
Mari’s husband got her out of the house a few hours early so Alicia and I could set up everything. We had people park around the corner so she didn’t see any cars that she’d recognize on the way home.
Unfortunately, I forgot to grab my camera as she was walking in, so I didn’t catch her surprised face, but she definitely seemed taken-off-guard when all of her friends jumped out from the hallway.
She loved the theme and decor of course! I think she was most surprised by all of that [read: she’s much better at themed parties than I am]. Hopefully, she had a great time and it made this birthday a little memorable!
Happy birthday, Mari! Hope 26 is an awesome year for you!
