To continue with my little series on the planning of my 40th birthday party, part 2 consists of a little surprise I sent via mail to my guests.  With the party being held at a B&B in Palm Springs, we had to first receive commitments from those who could come, thus requiring me to send out Evite invitatations initially.  However, this is going to be a special party with special little surprises and therefore, wanted to make sure I had something to get those committed guests in the right party mood.  The B&B we rented is a retro kitchy B&B called the Palm Springs Rendezvous with a cool 1950’s vibe.  In that vain, I created an ‘itinerary’ for the guests and printed it out with a 50’s retro theme.  I found cd’s that look like small vinyl records and my husband burned some great 50’s crooners music for everyone to listen to on the way up.  I then bought some retro gum – Beechums and Clove and packaged it all in a box that I wrapped with aqua retro wrapping paper and a pretty red bow and sticker and sent it off to each guest.  Here are some pictures of the final product:

      We bought the cd’s online on I believe. I had to do a google search for cd’s that look like vinyl records and found a lot of places in the UK that sell them. From there I copied the actual name of the cd’s and did a search for them and ultimately found them on Amazon.
