Half Birthday Party

Sunday, November 11, 2012

My Mother-in-Law turns 50 this year, and rather than throwing her an expected 50th Birthday Party we decided to really surprise her with a 49 1/2 Birthday Party on a Thursday night, exactly 6 months before her 50th Birthday!
I wanted the party to be fun, colorful, and very 'birthday-ish', almost like a kid's party since it wasn't a 50th Birthday Party!  
We served a taco bar since it was fun, easy, and everyone loves Tacos!
The invitations--Lots of mixed colors and patterns. I tore the edged to make the paper look like it was ripped in 'half'.
 Thanks for 'Half'ing a good time candy favors, since a lot of kids attended.

Birthday straws for the Margaritas made out of ripped paper scraps to match the 'Half' theme.

 Plenty of Mexican Beers......
 .....and of course Margaritas!
 Half Chocolate, Half Funfetti Cupcakes
Half decorated with '4', Half with '9'
Half purple, Half teal (do you get the theme here?)
'Trix' crispy bars to match the bright color theme

Birthday Banner so she would know what the party was for when she walked in
