A room full of music, friends, family and lots of pink! Daphne Musso greeted the crowd with waves and a few kisses.

The special occasion, her birthday, but not just any birthday. She is celebrating 100 years of life.

Musso, a resident of Camelot of Broussard, was decked out in a pink feather boa and matching tiara as her guest serenaded her.

Staff say the 100 year old is regarded as one of the spunkiest residents at Camelot. She is also a U.S. Marine.

"I was just thrilled that people thought about me you know. And all my friends and family are all here," Musso said of the celebration.
