For my sister-in-law's 60th birthday party, we found an amazing event space in historic Lilburn, Georgia, to celebrate and surprise her. Antiques in Old Town, owned by Hugh and Rowann Wilkerson, is a fun and unique place to shop, while spending time visiting with friendly faces. Reminds me of scenes from the popular television show, Designing Women, where customers and owners find connection and humor awaiting. The Wilkersons throw these amazing seasonal open houses throughout the year and host customers in their spacious building connected to the back of the store. It's like finding a secret happy place with hidden treasures.
Since they already had the store decorated for the 4th of July, coming up with birthday decorations to blend in was at first, a challenge, but taking the primary color of blue and using a beachy theme, it started to come together very nicely.
I unrolled tropical wrapping paper to line the three large tables and used burlap, beach signs, shells, battery operated lights, paper fans, scrabble tiles and chocolate treats to use for centerpieces.
The color scheme summed up the feeling of summertime at the beach over the 4th of July!
Found these cute pineapple cup cake toppers at Hobby Lobby! Maybe you've seen the sign that reads, "Be like a pineapple . . . stand tall, wear and crown and be sweet on the inside."
Couldn't figure out why the icing on this one cupcake slide off the side. My friend Kim laughed and said, "It's clearly is going through menopause!" We both laughed with tears. I think many women can relate. Oh well, at least it still has it's pineapple crown.
The event was a great success and here's a larger pic of the event space that Antiques in Old Town offers. Call them for a quote and check out the video below where they were featured on Teresa Ingalls' YouTube channel, Keep It Historic.
