Mom's 50th Birthday Bash

Cristina and I threw a 'zebra inspired' 50th birthday party for my mom and here are some of the pictures.

All photos are courtesy of Forrest Harris, a local Houston photographer.

Her invites


We had these little groupings around the room with different pictures and stories of things she had accomplished in her 50 years. We also wrapped presents to add the colors and a touch of zebra!


This was the table you saw from the front door




Her cake






My momma with the food table














It wouldn't be a Harris party without these 3 things...


I loved the little flags that I saw on P is for Party


Our struggling chocolate fountain... it still tasted good!






each of the kids got up and 'roasted' my mom with some of our favorite funny stories.


Happy Birthday!




The party was such a success and so much fun. Happy Birthday Mom, Love you!
