Well, mine is at least and only two other people can say they have the best mom in the whole world. My mom’s birthday was a couple of weeks ago. Growing up, my mom always had a way of making birthdays so special and she still does (mine is only a month away and I can’t wait to see what she’s got up her sleeve this year!) and not in the crazy elaborate birthdays that drive parents nuts and make them take out a second mortgage for their kids’ birthdays, but in the way that created beautiful memories for her children. I remember every birthday because Mom made it special. As I started growing up, I wanted to return the favor.
I found these cute paper straws on Amazon as well. I think we only used a few of them but don’t they look cute? I displayed the straws as well as some gold forks in champagne flutes.
I also used the straws to create this cake topper.
