Last week my brother's and I threw our parents a 60th surprise birthday party.  Their birthdays are a month apart, so we picked a date right between.  It was a blast.  There was a great turn out.  We had a hot dog bar with classic chicago toppings as well as exotic ones like basil and fresh mozzarella.  I also made all the decorations for the part.  Here is the banner I made.

This was easy to make.  If you have a standard inkjet printer.  Each triangle is about 8x8.  i used curling ribbon to connect the triangles.

Next I snagged this idea from Martha Stewart.  I printed out old photographs of my parents.  Luckily my mom had just undergone the project of converting our old photographs to digital.  Next I created these collages in the shape of 60.  This was an easy project, and everyone loved it.

To top the whole evening I made toppers for my guests heads.  I am quite notorious for making tiny hats.  These tiny hats really made the night special.
