My mom is having a significant-ends-in-zero birthday this month. My family is planning a surprise party for her. So far we've sent out the invitations and drafted a preliminary grocery list. We're a bit behind in the actual planning part though, especially since the party is in 9 days. Uh yeah, NINE DAYS.
Here's where you lovelies come in. I need some ideas, some party planning GOLD if you will, to take this party from "thoughtful" to "bitchin'!" Keep in mind that it's an afternoon party of mostly older people (we're talking the 50 - 65 age set) so jello shots and strip poker are (probably) out of the question.
Turtle has the decorations down and Bow is in charge of making a guestbook where people can write messages to my mom. I'm making hot pepper jelly (because our mom is such a hottie!) for the party favours (even though after making over 100 jars of jam for our wedding favours I pledged to never make jam again.) Other than that, we've got nothing.
Help us out! Quickly! We don't have much time left.
