My hubby just celebrated his 41st birthday on Sunday. Last year I wanted to throw him a surprise party but he insisted he didn't want a party so I decided against it.. BUT.. this year I really wanted to do it. I just couldn't find an excuse to get him out of the house on his day off from work so I could set up and get folks over. I was about to give up until I went over my friends house on Saturday and her husband suggested taking my hubby out to see the Hobbit while I set up the house for the surprise party..
I was SOOO excited. It was a go! I contacted my friends via email that night and asked if they could come over on short notice.. I was so happy when they said they could.. (they are awesome)!
So hubby leaves at noon for the 3 hour movie and I leave to get decorations, cake, balloons and food. 2 hours later, I'm home with my neighbor, friend helping me get the decorations put up and ready for everyone to arrive 30 minutes later.
Hubby told me he disliked the Over The Hill theme so I found this awesome "Vintage Dude" theme and loved it.. I also purchased a matching balloon along with one with the grim reaper on it saying "Relax, I'm Only Hear For the Cake".. He chuckled at that..
Cake time. He has two favorite cake flavors.. This one- German Chocolate Cake and Carrot Cake. He wants me to rotate them each year..
Found this cool matching Authentic Vintage Dude hat. The back says "Sharp Shooter".. I also added a cute blinking "Aged to Perfection" button...
Here he is sporting the cool hat and button
Just like my kiddos, I must have a picture taken with the birthday 'boy'....
A couple gifts we got him... I also got him a gift card to Scheel's sporting goods so he will spend money on himself....
I'm so happy that this turned out like it did. Everything fell into place just right. Got it all put together in 3 hours.. Very impressive I might add and my hubby was really happy... YEH!!!
