The Party Works Review {&} Giveaway -- Mom's Birthday Party

We like to make birthdays a big deal in our family. So when The Party Works contacted me about doing a review of their products, I was excited. I chose The Sweet Treats party pack to help us celebrate my mom's birthday.

My first impression was being blown away by how much was included in pack. It literally came with everything we needed {and then some!} to throw an amazing party for my mom.

As you can see, the pack included dinner plates, dessert plates, napkins, cups, forks and spoons, invitations, balloons (2 colors of latex balloons and 1 mylar balloon), plastic tablecloth, streamers (2 colors), ribbon (2 colors), and candles! And all in a cute and fun cupcake design. 

The table wear was a good quality. The plates and cups were sturdy. Although we had tacos, which is not a typical birthday dinner, the dinner plates were a great size. The silverware was sturdy - you didn't have to worry about the forks breaking off like plastic silverware sometimes does. They also had no sharp edges which is important to consider when kids are involved. 

The balloons {and streamers!} added a nice touch of extra festivity that we usually save just for the kids' birthdays. It was so much fun to be able to go "all out" for my mom as well. I tied this bouquet of balloons to her chair at the dinner table.

I also added these balloons and streamers to the mantle. This is where we always set up gifts. 

I made a giant cupcake cake to go along with the cupcake theme. We called her party "How sweet it is!" Because every time we get to have the family together to celebrate and every year we get to spend with my mom is super sweet. 

Here is everyone ready for dinner

The dessert plates were the perfect size for cake and ice cream and were sturdy enough that you didn't have to worry about them sagging or leaking as they were passed around the table. 

As I mentioned before, the silverware was a high enough quality that we didn't have to worry about the kids using it. Even Jordan was able to feed himself without us having to go get a kids fork out. 

The Party Works really made planning my mom's sweet birthday celebration a breeze!! They carry high quality party decorations and table wear at great prices and offer tons of different themes, from kids birthdays to adults and everything in between. They also carry supplies for baby showers, holidays, baptisms, graduations, and more! (Yes, even divorce... do people really throw divorce parties?!) Check them out for your next party!!! 

Now here's a few more pictures of my mom's party!
