Mel’s Surprise 25th Birthday Party

Last Saturday Mel came home from her birthday dinner to her surprise 25th birthday party!! The evening before her party, 10 of her best girlfriends flew into town for her birthday. Little did she know, the surprises would continue all weekend! 

 The adorable cake her sister had made for her by Cloud 9!

While Mel was enjoying a birthday dinner at Firebirds with her friends and family, the setup crew was hard at work!


I’d say she was pretty surprised! 

There were even some happy tears.

Time to cut the cake!

Not only did she successfully blow out all the candles, she took out the champagne tower as well. 

Happy Birthday, Mel!
