Sixty is Sweet Hydrangea Birthday Party

Details! details! details in the garden at this hydrangea Sixty is Sweet birthday party for Jane of The Garden Girls!

Here today to share the pictures of the garden and decor of the party. Jane & I had a blast planning, shopping, crafting, sharing and styling her party!  We hope you are able to get inspired with what was created,  as Darcy Miller shared with me when I asked how many details are too many? Her answer "there are never to many details, it is about the process".......I think Jane had fun with the process most especially in her gorgeous gardens!  I'll have to get her to share more pictures of the gardens around her home, she has created a peaceful and relaxing place.

You're Invited!!  The invitation that I designed for the party ~ 
it will be in my shop soon:  Styled Prints Design Loft 

The back garden styled perfectly for a relaxing gathering place during the party! 

Ball jars filled with dainty hydrangea arrangements made by Jane...

Paper lanterns and star strung to off of a garden hook

Sweet zinna & hydrangea arrangements created by Jane

Close up of the ball jar, Jane's tip: gather your flowers and place the stems in a water tube to keep them fresh before placing them in your ball jars, keeps them together & easy for displaying the jars.  

The deck is styled & set for all the guests!!

Absolutely beautiful centerpieces created Jane!

Did you notice the flamingo on the invitation that I created for the party?  Here she is adorned with a sweet ball jar of flowers!  Placido Flamigo is the flamingo's name, she certainly makes a statement in the gardens that for sure! 

It was a hot & humid August day here in Chestnut Hill, we were prepared with fans perfect for a garden party from Beau Coup! Here is the link for the fans there are so many colors to chose from! 

Party guest giving them a sweet breeze! 

Jane accessorized all the lantern with stands of paper hydrangeas that she created!  
I just love adding little details to party decor.  
The punch in the Martha Stewart Crafts hydrangea punch, you can find it at Michaels Stores. 

Next posts will be the sweets & more DIY party decor!
