50th Birthday Party

May 6th- My mom turns 50 on May 9th. This year I was asked to plan/host her a birthday party. Her only "request" was no black or over the hill themes. So I went with a rainbow theme. I sent out some invitations to family that live out of town. I used Facebook to invite everyone else. My uncle (her brother) that lives in Virgina was able to make the trip for the weekend. I LOVED getting to see him. It just wasn't long enough. The party was fun and went great.
my best friend and "helper" Jametra
my grandparents cut out and painted these letters 
I dug through some photos and covered the 50 
rainbow cupcakes- I used a cutter to cut out the flower and faces.
Jametra hot clued them to lollipop sticks. The numbers are foam stickers.
