As promised, here are some photos of the decorations from my sisters 30th. The color scheme was pink with little touches of whites & silvers.
The mantle was kept simple. Glittered candles framing a baby picture of Aiyani that was blown up to 11 x 14, and some crystals scattered along the base of the candle holders. The backyard was lit up with Italian style lights and rice paper lanterns. Inside I had these “streamers” I made by cutting circles out of scrapbook paper and linking them together with silver hoops (an idea I found on Martha Stewart.) With the leftover circles I made a Happy Birthday banner and tied them together with white ribbon.
