A 60th Birthday Party Bash

I am pretty jazzed to share this birthday party with you today. Planned by Eden of Sugar and Charm for her father in-law’s 60th birthday party, it’s proof that you can (and should) have fun at any age. Lots of yummy desserts, vintage sodas, good wine and a few DIY details made this party truly special.

Eden bought vases from a local dollar store, printed out black and white photos of her father in-law and taped them on the outside. She then placed a white, non-scented candle inside each vase and lit them in a row along the mantle. She also made delicious carrot cupcakes and truffles. Oh how I love homemade truffles! (You can snag the carrot cake recipe on the Sugar and Charm blog.)

For more from this fabulous little party, visit Sugar and Charm. Thanks for sharing, Eden!

What clever ideas.I have seen other events planned by this woman and they all had such a “personal”feel to them.That is what a person who is celebrating an occasion is looking for.That special something..Good job Sugar and Charm.



I’m throwing a bridal shower in a month … totally looking at copying those picture candles!

Both my in-laws are turning 60 this year… thanks for the inspiration! I especially love the sparkler candles!
