Last month I hosted a surprise birthday party for my partner. It was his sister’s idea at Christmas time, so we spent about four months planning and preparing for it. Hosting a party for a grown man is a strange thing. You know how I like to make decorations for baby showers and bridal showers. But what do you do for a man’s birthday party? We decided to bring out all of the things he likes on to each table and go from there. Cheap centerpieces when they come straight from your house! And he did not even notice the things were gone. We used his favorite pop as balloon weights. And I made a simple label for the water bottles related to Duck Dynasty. Not my usual craftiness, but it definitely took some strategic thinking. Overall, it was a big success and he was completely surprised!
