I'm throwing a surprise 50th birthday party for my mom at the end of September. I don't have a lot of money (I just got married and bought a house), so my dad is going to help pay for things like food. We're inviting about 40 people. I was thinking of doing more of a "celebrate life" theme with lots of bright colors instead of the traditional black over the hill theme, because I don't want to upset my mom! I could use some ideas. How can I keep it a surprise? Should I tell her that I'm inviting her over for lunch? (It will be a Sunday afternoon.) Also, is there anything I can do to make the party extra special? I was thinking of making a scrapbook of her life with pictures and getting everyone at the party to sign it. I've never made a scrapbook before but I think it might be fun. Thanks for any ideas!!
