The Fairy Tale Manor 10865 Preston Rd. Frisco, TX
For approximately 6 weeks now we have been secretly planning my mother's Surprise 50th Birthday party. My dad insisted that it be a Cinderella theme for the princess that my mother is. Our challenge was then to create the perfect party for 50 of our closest family and friends. We were going for more of a: glass slipper, dreams come true, fairytale party. Rather than a pumpkin, mice and fairy Godmother party. I am pleased to say that I think we succeeded!
The Cake table complete with mom's personal cake on the left and the two tiered cake (so good) from Market Street Grocery Store. The Metal Crown was created by someone my dad works with.
After agonizing over where to hold it, we received an invitation for a wedding in July to be held at The Fairy Tale Manor here in Frisco. It sounded like the perfect place for out party. I looked it up online and found a beautiful one stop shop wedding venue. It just seemed to be too much for a party...or...is it!? Not for my mother! This place was perfect. I called and was pleasantly surprised to find that they were hosting 8 weddings in 7 days surrounding my Mother's birthday, but not on the day we wanted! Next thing you know it was ours, and I was EXCITED!
Candy buffet complete with only silver, blue and white candy. Metal frames read "How Sweet it is". Everyone received a take out box with a sticket on it that said, "Sweet of you to come" to take their candy home in.
I am so glad to finally share with you all the most magical day we had this past Saturday. Here is the plot. Mom was convinced we were to have a family portrait done on Saturday afternoon at 2pm. I left earlier in the day and was to meet them later. Mom was to get The Buddy ready for pics. She was all set. Meanwhile all of our friends and family started trickling into the venue ready to complete the surprise.
All of Mom's neices and nephews! We are actually missing 4 others who couldn't make it...We missed you guys!
