Yesterday, I told y’all about the birthday cake catastrophe, and today it is all about the 30th birthday party details! I wanted to do a theme party because dressing up is fun and makes for cute pictures. 30 rocks seemed like a good idea, and since the boys were born in 1981, I thought we could all dress up like 80’s rock stars. Come to find out, 30 year old boys think that’s cheesy. Do you think that’s a cheesy theme? I’ll have to do it for my own 30th! I made this cute invite that did not get used:
Any who, I ended up taking the easy route with a pre made evite. Super simple. I was inspired on the evite website with a little ad for personalized M&M’s. Did you know you can get people’s faces printed on M&M’s? I had to try it out and I googled to find a 10% off coupon code. It was a splurge, but for $52.60 you get to add 2 pictures and 2 phrases to M&M colors of your choice. And they come individually wrapped in 20 packets, perfect for personalized party favors. (This is not a sponsored post, I’m just obsessed with pictures of my friends on M&M’s!)
I found plastic table cloths and plates at Target on sale! Come to think of it, that is why I ended up with the color scheme. The yellow table cloths and orange plates were on sale. The blue plates were a crazy $2 splurge.
Here are the balloons before I added highlights with a sharpie…
Here is my really fancy highlight addition, photographed with my super fun M&M’s!
The birthday boys special cupcakes!
The toppers turned into hair pieces for 2 ladies we did not know…
