More fantastic ideas. Love the nugget idea. We are definitely going to use your idea Liz for the mason jars with buttons, and I am going to make the top of the jars look like pincushions. Now just to find lots of cheap buttons!
That is so cool Erin! I wasn't scrapping when I got married, but I sure wish I had been.

try "antique" stores or second hand shops -- very often they have tons of buttons. I used to live near an awesome one that had patterns, fabric, crafting magazines, vintage thread and barrels of buttons sold by the scoop!
Try garage sales and second hand stores - you can usually get bags or jars of them for fairly little. If all else fails, you can get big bags of mixed buttons at craft super stores (Michaels/JoAnns/Hobby Lobby), they are still a good price, just not as good as 'used'.

Thanks ladies. You have all been fantastic with your idea. I can't wait to see how it all unfolds. I know Mom is going to love it.
Wow...................what great ideas here!! Another one is to take photos at the party and then print them onto fabric for a quilt.
Thanks Jhyll. Another great idea. Mom is going to be busy after the party, lol.

I totally agree. She is fabulous. Too bad she is in Northern Ohio instead of Central Ohio, I would have to hire her expertise for the party, lol.
