It’s not every day that you get to help plan a 75th semi-surprise birthday party.  So when Mr. D approached me about helping him plan his wife’s birthday party, I was elated!  Personally, I LOVE birthdays (especially mine :)) and parties, so this was a no-brainer for me. 
Mr. D had already booked the Cardinal Club for his event and it was up to me to help him get that “WOW” factor.  He really wanted to make his party stand out and keep guests talking about it for months after. 
I immediately enlisted the help of the design team at The English Garden in Raleigh.  Their staff is amazing and they have such a wide variety of cool rental pieces that are sure to fit any theme. 
The Cardinal Club and their staff did an amzing job with the food and guest services.  I was very impressed as I watched the servers cater to each guests’ needs and requests.  Top notch guys!

Mrs. D’s nickname is the “Queen” so naturally that’s what her place card had to say!  😉 

English Garden knocked it out of the ballpark!  Can you see the gold crown in the flowers? 

I hope one day that I have half as cool of a birthday party as Mrs. D had!   I overheard so many of her guests oohh-ing and awwh-ing over how amazing that room looked!  Mr. D – I think the party was a success!!
