Andrew’s Birthday Party

My husband is halfway to 50. Let’s talk about how terrifying that sounds. No, on second thought, let’s not.

We decided to do a football themed birthday party because we had already done a movie theme for Andrew at a past birthday, and football is more fun. :) I made up this little invite in Photoshop and ordered it from my photo lab. They turned out great!

Sorry for splotching it by blocking out the address. I love picture creepers, but not actual creepers. ;)

I spent a good portion of the last month and a half planning, and Mom-in-law came to help me set up some things on the day of the party. We were exhausted by the end of the night, but it was worth it! I used a chalkboard marker for the “Happy Birthday Andrew” sign, and spray painted the little 25 numbers that I got from Hobby Lobby.

The balloons and little peanut containers came from Party Galaxy.

I made and printed out the water bottle labels from Photoshop. There are a million free templates online that make it easy to get the sizing right.

Andrew loves chicken wings, and I feel like they go hand in hand with football, so we ordered a bunch from Buffalo Wild Wings. The boys devoured them. …I must confess…I have never ever tried a chicken wing. They look messy.

The photo booth produced some of my new favorite pictures everrrr. Brother-in-law and I tested it out first.

Baby sister chef made the cake and cupcakes because she’s stellar. They were a big hit, and Andrew definitely loved the cake.

We also had some famous Uncle Mitch cookies. :)

Not a bad way to turn a quarter of a century old. ;)
