Milestone Memories Birthday Celebration Ideas

Do you have someone in your family that has a milestone anniversary or birthday coming up, who doesn’t really need anything in regards to presents, doesn’t really want anything in particular, but you still want to do something special for them?

I’m going through that right now. I’ve been doing my darndest to think of something, but really there is not much in way of options. Having said all that, I think the effort and time of putting together something special and unique, like this week’s inspiration board shares, is a great idea. It’s personal, it’s meaningful, and it’s something you can’t just buy off the shelf. Here’s what I had in mind:

It’s Written in the Stars – Astronomy Themed Wedding

A few weeks ago I shared a party idea board for an under the stars backyard movie night. If you missed it, check it out here.

I absolutely loved the theme of the party, and just couldn’t stop thinking about how beautiful a wedding in a science museum or planetarium would be. Something under the stars, but without the bugs and heat. That was all I needed for inspiration – the next thing I knew I had found some fabulous inspirational images and compiled them into this idea board:

Vintage Travel Inspired Wedding Idea Board

Now boarding! Fabulous wedding inspiration board ahead!

It doesn’t matter where you are when you are getting married. It doesn’t matter what season it is. It doesn’t even matter what time of day it is, or even what day of the week it turns out to be.

The most important thing is that you are marrying your other half. Your best friend. Your partner for life. Remember that you have each gone on a journey that has led you to that very day, and very specific pieces of the cosmic puzzle have had to work out for the miracle that is love to occur.

On your wedding day- a new adventure awaits you both. An adventure you will take on together. So for the couples that have traveled great distances to come together, or just for the couple that plan on seeing the many wonders of the world together, I present to you this vintage travel wedding idea board:

Under the Stars – Backyard Movie Party Ideas

Things needed for a fun movie night:

  1. A great movie
  2. Comfy seating
  3. Delicious snacks
  4. Twinkling stars

Yup. That about covers everything you’ll need for this backyard movie party under the stars! It’s hard to believe that the summer is already winding down, the kids are going back to school, and in parts of the country- the leaves are already starting to change ever so slightly.

This week’s party idea board is one of the simplest, but probably one of the most fun boards I’ve put together. Host this party for your friends and family, or have the kids have a sleepover and enjoy a good Transformers marathon. Any way you host this party, everyone is bound to have a great time. Be sure to have plenty of cozy blankets and pillows nearby, and it will be a hit!

Here’s what I had in mind:
