I'm at home on a rainy day off and decided to #flashbackfriday a blog post. This summer we celebrated my niece Brooke's birthday in Florida. 

The theme was 

The idea to lay the finger foods on palm fronds came from my friend Michelle who shared this traditional  Filipino dining experience with me! 
I packed a few lightweight essentials like this celebrate banner, napkins, and place cards. 

My good friend Mel jumped at the chance to make these fruit pizza's, she did an amazing job, 
so yummy.

CHALK is easy to pack and everyone was able to share well wishes for the birthday girl right on the table runner (black wrapping paper).
You can get a similar "celebrate" banner here!

I packed some chalk and some chartreuse tissue paper to make faux lettuce for table top decor. Learn how to make them here!

I enlisted my mother to make us all crowns out of palm leaves, she is so awesome. Learn how to make one here!

My sister managed to find some cool accessories to set up a martini bar for the grown ups.
We added Palm fronds and leaves everywhere for accents.

These cute Meri Meri place cards from Paper Source not only had our names on the front, but on the back they had interesting trivia about each party goer. The person whose name was on the card had to ask  others "who in this room..."
Whether it was "...has flown a plane" or "...has been to Dubai" it  lead way to laughter and great conversation!
