We don't have any kids yet, and my husband didn't really have big birthday parties as a kid, so I have been throwing him a birthday party for the past couple of years. It's fun coming up with the theme and components for the party, and it's a chance to see family and friends.
Last year, I threw a gnome themed surprise party for my husband. Here are a few pics:
My husband loves astronomy, so this year the theme was space. It was pretty easy, and we kept the price down by serving hot dogs and hamburgers. I bought a constellation pack, painted the planets, and strung them like a garland. The crochet decorations were projects that I had previously done and can be seen in other posts. Most of the serving dishes came from the dollar store.
I took some pics of the party food and decorations, but I'm not exactly a great photographer, so some are a little bit blurry.
We had star crunches, asteroids (cheese balls), and star burst candies for snacks. The snacks table was decorated with the constellation garland.
There was a filling station where party guests could make their drinks. We had sodas, teas, water, etc.
I didn't take a picture of the space discs and satellites (hamburgers and hotdogs), but here is a pic of the condiments and buns section.
For sides, we had flora & dip, Jerry space taters (Jerry potatoes, aka super cheesy yummy potatoes), and crunchy space taters. I used a rocket ship amigurumi as a decoration for this section.
Finally, we had a dessert table. I made cupcakes, and my sister-in-law made her pumpkin roll (which is really good). I embellished this table with a planet and space monsters.
This party was a lot of fun. We had a great time spending time with our family.
