Winner, Winner, Whiskey Birthday Dinner

We are still trying to decide on the celebration for the Birthday Boy that doesn’t like birthday parties. Our first idea was the Baseball Birthday Bash. We are now considering a simple birthday dinner at one of his favorite locations, Boure. We want to keep the festive birthday balloons, but there wouldn’t be many other decorations. We want to have it in the semi-private wine room of the restaurant, which will give just the intimate feel we are going for. I found this creative “Party-In-a-Box” online while hunting for inspiration online. I love the idea of doing something similar as favors for everyone who attends, with birthday buttons (based on a label of one of his favorite whiskeys, Old Charter), straws, and maybe a mini bottle of whiskey. We can finish everything off with a simple birthday cake. Birthday Dinner{ Balcony image from Boure, Jumbe Number Balloons available at BargainBalloons.com, Boure Crawfish Tails image from Yelp, Custom designed birthday button, Party In A Box image from Amanda Jane Jones, Maker’s Mark image from Brides, Birthday Cake image from Cooking Channel, Red Striped Straws available at Shop Sweet Lulu’s }

 

 

Ballpark Birthday Bash

Planning a birthday party for an adult male can sometimes be a challenge. It can easily fall into kiddie party territory or feel cheesy. To complicate matters, this birthday boy isn’t even a fan of having parties (but his wife is fond of throwing them). We are trying to come up with ideas that are still fun, but don’t make him uncomfortable with all of the attention. Our first idea is to celebrate at the Ole Miss baseball game on his birthday. They are at every game already, but we would add some fun number balloons to indicate his age and offer his friends the traditional “popcorn, peanuts, and Cracker Jacks,” along with some festive desserts. Here is our inspiration board for the Ballpark Birthday Bash: Ballpark Birthday Bash{ Large 32 balloons available at BargainBalloons.com, Cracker Jack image from Paper Treats and Other Sweets, Peanut image from Two Plus Us, Vintage Popcorn Bags available at Shop Sweet Lulu, Chocolate covered Oreo baseball image from Yummy Serving, Baseball Tablescape image from Kara’s Party Ideas, Ole Miss Cookies available at Parties and Pastries, Peanut centerpiece image from Paper Treats and Other Sweets }
