I think of this location, only during the afternoon, say a 2pm event.
The invites: simple and straight-forward. Tucked inside a peach envelope for a bit of unexpected.
Arrangements, above and below, that pull these colors together. I like the black urn, below, over the glass vase.
I really like the idea of a wishing tree. Where guests could write their sentiments and well-wishes and so forth.
The best birthdays of all are those that haven't arrived yet.

Oh, to be seventy again.

For a fun twist on the program fan, why not print fun facts or trivia about the guest of honor? or
share stories about her life.
And then- time for cake. 80 candles not recommended.
Serve up the cake with delicious steaming hot cups of java. or tea. if you insist.
And, finally, a sweet little favor to end the afternoon. Adorable little baskets filled here with chocolate covered cherries. Could be fresh cherries as well. Or, chocolate covered chocolate. Just 'cuz I think she would be that kind of gal.
So. Tell me. Are you looking forward to turning 80?
