Eric's 30th Birthday

Eric is officially an old man, on July 1st he turned 30!
I wanted to do something special for his big birthday so I started talking to his friends and decided to plan a surprise party for him.

I whipped up an invite in photoshop and emailed it to all his buddies:

That same night we threw a bridal shower for my soon to be sister-in-law. It was held inside and Eric's party was outside. It was a bit stressful and chaotic, but it all came together in the end.

I decided to make Eric's cake and it was my first real attempt at a cake. 
I am pretty pleased with the way it turned out!

I forgot to take pictures of the inside of the cake. It was layers of blue and orange. 
Everything was on a color scheme. 

I made this banner:

and little tags that were glued onto the popcorn boxes and silverware:

I meant to have a beautiful table with it all set up nicely but it got windy and everything blew away. So I don't have pictures of it all put together.
But none of it mattered as long as Eric was happy.

We had a great turnout and after its all said and done, it was worth all the hassle.

Happy Birthday to my sweetheart, you will never get another party again :) haha!
