Spa Day
Tammie's Birthday
Fun, Fabulous and Fifty

This is a continuation of Spa Day celebrating my girlfriend's 50th birthday.
The ladies and I decided to have beverages, swimming (or floating) and luncheon in my yard. I set up the gazebo for the festivities and everyone brought yummy food to share.

We chose black, hot pink and white for our theme colors. I hung sheer white panels in the gazebo to give it an airy spa look. I think I will change the ribbon color and keep them up for the rest of the summer. I love them.

I incorporated polka dots into the theme and got a piece of fabric in hot pink with black polka dots that I cut into a square and used for accent on white tablecloths.
I bought these white tablecloths several summers ago for my daughters wedding. I purchased them in a 2 pack at Sam's Club. They are a great bargain and have held up, I use them outside on banquet tables all the time.

My girlfriend, and my daughter helped me paint these glasses. We decorated them with jewels and paint. They served double duty as glasses and place cards. We personalized them with names and flourishes.

The were so fun to do and added a personal touch.

My favorite element was my long stemmed gerbera daisies in the center. I place them on mirrors to add a little sparkle.
