Tropical Birthday Bash

Beach sand, shells and votives light up the room
I've heard that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I didn't believe it until this post published without text!  All I did was answer the telephone, and the next thing on my screen read "You have published successfully."  Let me try it again...this time with a few explanations.


From the blog title, you may have gathered that we had a bit of tropical weather here recently -- in celebratory form.  My hub decided he didn't want to turn 55 alone, so we invited a few of his close pals by to cheer him up!  And they did a great job.  Look how happy he is:
He & Me in Hawaiian garb


Tropical Cupcakes
and a printed bamboo shade as the tablecloth
An embellished palm tree


Paint chips, fancy paper plus my Slice


Create a colorful banner
that reads "Happy Birthday Ron"

The cost for all this creativity:
priceless.


Staying with the tropical/beachy theme, we recently purchased this wood print artwork
for our upcoming 25th wedding anniversary,
to commemorate our engagement on the beach in Malibu, California.
Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart!

  6. Love this idea. My roommate and I were going to do this in college complete with a baby pool...but then we decided the pool indoors was a bad idea!

  13. Thanks for sharing about your tropical birthday bash. Last month, arranged my cousin’s birthday at one of best lofty spaces in the town. Invited all of his friends and had a lovely time together. It was quite a memorable event.
