Sweet and Simple Birthday

This summer my mom had a birthday. Well, she has a birthday every summer, but this was a special, milestone birthday and my sisters and I wanted to throw a little birthday luncheon to celebrate. A party doesn't have to be expensive or elaborate to be fun and special; some fresh flowers, pretty place settings, and a make-your-own salad station made for a wonderful afternoon of birthday love!
