A Casino Themed 60th Birthday

We surprised my Mother-In-Law this weekend for her 60th Birthday! We had a dinner for her at Gallagher's in Atlantic City. The restaurant is already nicely decorated so I just made a few items to make it seem more like a party.

I made these headbands. They were really easy. I bought packs of headbands from the dollar store (they are 4 for a dollar!) and fanned out five cards to make birthday tiaras.

Chocolate covered Oreos were the party favors. I chose them because they look like poker chips.

I put one milk chocolate and one white chocolate in these little gold dice favor boxes that I made.

The gold dice favor boxes I made and filled with chocolate covered Oreos.

Since I had a lot of little projects going on, I ran out of time to make her card. I ended up buying this cute card from Papyrus for her.  It was perfect!

The cake... yes, there is a cake under all of that.

I put clear glass votives on the table and used black & gold dice for filler around the candles.

 Gallagher's was excellent. The birthday girl had a great time and the surprise was a success! It was a very happy birthday!
