This fun-loving gran had a blast at her 90th birthday, with a princess-themed party.
The cheerful grandmother, known as ‘G-Ma’ to family, looked like a queen as she donned a huge pink tutu, plastic crown, and a beaming smile for the pictures.
G-Ma’s family organized a throne, tutu, cake, balloons, biscuits in the shape of her face, crown, and a custom t-shirt that read ‘It took me 90 years to look this good!’.
It was G-Ma’s granddaughter, Stephanie Perkins, who had the idea for the shoot.
Stephanie said: “My grandma is very special to me and during the pandemic and quarantine, we did not get to see much of her.
“I knew her 90th birthday was coming and we wanted to do something special just for her.
“I had seen people on the internet do photoshoots for first birthdays, and even 30th birthdays so I thought why not do one for her 90th with the whole tutu and crown outfit?
“She was very happy to pose. She was smiling and laughing the whole time. We all had a lot of fun celebrating G-Ma.”
Photographer Melissa Denny, who went to high school with Stephanie, was the talented snapper booked for the celebration in Reynolda Gardens in North Carolina.
She said: “We had the best time, talking, laughing, dancing—G-Ma was a great sport and down for anything.
“What an amazing opportunity to spend time with a sweet, 90-year-old, wonderful lady, making memories, and having fun celebrating her milestone birthday.”
G-Ma was joined by her daughter Debra, her son-in-law, and and her two granddaughters at the shoot.
SWNSAfter the photo session, the celebrations were not over for G-Ma—who had a drive-thru party the next day where her other friends could come and wish her happy birthday safely.
