His birthday fell on Easter Sunday this year, so I decided to throw him a surprise party the Saturday before. It took alot of convincing and some help from the inlaws to get him and the kids out of the house that morning. I didn't have long while he was gone to do much since I also had lunch to prepare for all the family and friends that were coming, so it was pretty simple and basic. We served home made Cafe Rio salads for lunch, one of my husbands favorite meals, and some snacks.
I love dessert tables, so here was my simple one for the party... I ordered some fun size candy that went with the whole idea of the party for snacks. Cake and cupcake tower I made (tutorial coming soon). David's favorite cake is vanilla with chocolate frosting, yummo! Bobble head David! I had it made for him a couple years ago, just removed the golf club and put a mini trophy in his hand. I made these cupcake pics for fun with different clip art I found online. I thought they turned out pretty cute. I hung a frame on the wall with spoof pictures of David caught in the act of doing different things that make him a Trophy Husband (see previous post for details) The party favors These fabulous trophy cookies made by my good friend Gina from Lil G's Cookies Trophy Husband kits for the men Each guy got a kit to take home to help them perfect their own Trophy Husband status The contents included: Trophy husbands can't have gas! Dead Batteries for the remote control Disappearing ink to look like a miracle worker Glasses so you can zone out while the wife goes on and on... these were a huge hit! My brother modeling them for everyone! And my own trophy husband giving them a try... But these were definitely the crowd favorite! Good food + friends and family + lots of laughs
= one great party!
Happy Birthday Babe, we love you!
