This was a surprise party for my mother. It was my first hosted event. She definitely does not look like she's going to be 40, so black was not an option. I wanted to emphasize her elegance and femininity using her favorite color, Tiffany blue. This party was enough for 40 guests, and I did it for under $180! All graphics and paper products were designed by myself.

Hot potatoe, signature bingo game (bingo squares say things like "find someone who has never eaten sushi/been out of USA/etc..." The first one to get all of their squares signed wins., musical chairs

I had everyone stand up and introduce themselves, and tell how and how long they've known the guest of honor.
