Since she was working for US Airways we decided to throw an airline themed get together. We got a bunch of balloons and had those floating around the kitchen. These made a big impact when everyone walked in.
The bar was set up like an in-flight beverage cart: full of mini soda's, nips, and champagne splits.
We found paper lunch trays from Shop Sweet Lulu and cooked a first class meal. Everyone enjoyed shrimp cocktail, shaved brussels sprout salad, lemon spatchcocked chicken, and garlic red potatoes. I may be biased, but I'm pretty sure it was the best airline food they have ever had :) We even printed out the US Airways logo and wrapped the utensils with it to make it that much more personalized.
Overall it was a really cute get together and very fun to plan. We are so happy for my Mom and hope she enjoys her retirement!
