Big 4-0 Birthday Dinner Party

This event was for a male 40th birthday! A celebration dinner party alfresco. I went with the colors of blue and green because they are typically “male” colors, and matched the hydrangeas beautifully. There are lots more pics in our Flickr set or Facebook album.
  •  The take home favors were chocolate covered oreosstacked and wrapped.
  •  Our little homage to the birthday guy: picture of him at age 2, and “C” for Chuck, was on the cookiesinserted into cupcakes. The icing was tinted a pale green.
Because this was a gathering of friends who all know each other pretty well, a fun game to play was “2 truths and a lie.” Each person writes down 3 statements, 2 are true and 1 is a lie. Everyone else guesses which they think the lie is…Fun with lots of laughs!

    I guess I should add, the note on the "game" table is from a piece of card stock I've had for a while, and the holder is from Office Depot.
