My mom’s 70th birthday party was a success! Seventy years deserved a glam birthday party to celebrate how amazing she is. The theme was an all-white party, with secondary colors of gold and pink. While the party itself wasn’t a surprise, I did fly in some important people in her life to surprise her. I did not use a party planner; instead, I decided to host an intimate dinner party at our home and invite her closest friends. It turned out to be so much better than I imagined, so I had to share all the details!

The Food

My mom loves soul food! We have used a private chef a couple of times who is phenomenal and specializes in elevated soul food, so we hired her for the event. All of her food was amazing, and the guests talked about how great she was the entire evening.

I also know how much my mom loves leopard print, so I decided to get a leopard cake but make it neutral. Another nice element was having the cake be vanilla with dulce de leche in the center.

To provide options, we also had cakesicles, cake pops, and chocolate-covered pretzels. They were definitely able to bring my vision of white and gold leopard print to life!

The Decor and Details

One element I love adding to each party is acrylic signage. It is a nice touch that adds an elevated feel to the party. We made acrylic dinner menus, a bar menu, a backdrop sign, and custom drink stirrers. My mom’s face on the signage was my favorite!

I believe the table setting was the main star of this party (besides my mom, of course)! I wanted flowers that went down the length of the table. It came out so beautifully, and as a party favor, we sent the guests home with floral arrangements.

My vision for the backdrop was originally for it to be a white shimmer wall, but I love that we ended up going with gold. Everyone took at least 20 pictures in front of this beautiful display!

The Entertainment

What is a party without a DJ! My mom loves music. The night was full of dancing and singing thanks to our amazing DJ. He had all the best hits and put us in a great mood. We partied all night.

I found these very cute and fun party games from Etsy! I was able to purchase and print them off on the same day. They had us laughing and reminiscing about great times.

My mom’s all-white birthday party was a success! We all had the best time coming together to celebrate her! Happy Birthday, Mama!
