Jaimie's Surprise party of the Century

My best friend Jaimie turns 23 Monday! We turned the whole weekend into a celebration! I have been planning a surprise party for her for months and pulled it off without her knowing.

It started when I found this old shelf out by our dumpster. I knew with a little bit of work it would be perfect for Jaimie's entry way. So I haul it up to my apartment. Later Jaimie is talking about the shelf she wanted and she had told Nayt to go get it but when he went down it was gone! I was so happy with myself. So over the last month or so I've been working on a frame for the top and a couple of baskets and liners to go on the shelf as well. Travis helped me prime and paint the baskets and the shelf! He is a lot better at it than me! I should have taken before pictures but just imagine an old shelf that fell apart and had lots of scratches and stickers on it. And the three little baskets were rainbow easter baskets and the bottom basket was light wicker.



When Nayt mentioned we could have a girls party I thought it would be awesome to have a surprise party. So I had my Aunt Shari make these AWESOME Digital invites with her digiscrap stuff.


For decorations, I used the streamer idea from MADE and loved how they turned out! I also borrowed a birthday banner from Ashlee


For the guests I made everyone part tiaras and rose earrings for the goodie gift. Jaimie got the queen crown.





And lastly the surprise! It was perfect. She had spent all day in Spokane with her mom and sisters and when we were ready I called and told her my washer was overflowing. She hurried over with towels I opened the door and we all shouted Surprise! It was wonderful

Happy birthday Jaimie!
