The “Getting Old Is A Challenge” Neon birthday party

So I turned 29 this week, officially living in my 30th year. Since I was going to be up in Sacramento visiting my bestie we decided to throw a big party and get lots of our friends to come visit. I came up with this theme – Getting Old Is A Challenge- based on the idea that we would play a series of minute to win it type games.

We decided to neon-ize this party just because we love neon and make it sort of an Olympics based concept – so we would have a podium and medals, etc. Most of that happened but the reality was we were having to much fun to really take the whole game thing really seriously. Let’s take a look at some of the decor we used:

First up was the baked potato bar wall centerpiece.  I found a quote I liked and made a print online for the focal point then I came up with this idea to use crepe paper and make a flower boarder to anchor it.

Brittany made me a beautiful coconut cake that matched.

Oh and these cupcakes.

Here was the winners podium/photo backdrop we made.  Brittany is an art teacher and so we used some of her kids’ artwork to pull it all together.

I don’t have many pictures of me and my friends yet, they are on another camera so that might end up being a separate post. But here are a just a few:

Thanks Britt for everything, it was a blast!
