-Kelly Lyden, Founder/Editor

This is a 40th Birthday Surprise Party I recently did for a husband and wife who love margaritas and the Bahamas. We did a tiki lounge invite and incorporated their love for margaritas and the islands with a “Patti and Paul’s Tiki Lounge” theme. There was a tiki bar with a margarita machine and passed drinks in custom cups and napkins as guests arrived, centerpieces out of pineapples, flip flops with custom hang tags for guests, and hawaiian dancers and a fire eater entertained the guests after the arrival of the “surprised” hosts. We used flip flops as the party favor, dressed-up with a custom gift tag! The evening had a wonderful, tropical feel!

30th Birthday Dinner

An eclectic tablescape was created by the birthday girl with DIY placement help from
I made favors with hot pink m&m’s and hang tags that matched the 30 high heel motif. Everyone signed the custom wine label bottle so she can remember her lovely 30th birthday dinner. What better way to welcome the next chapter of life than with good friends, food, wine and laughter.
