1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: 30th Birthday Ideas? on: November 07, 2006 03:11:45 PM
my friend rented a HUGE stretch limo for her hubbies big birthday and we went to 4 different Irish pubs (he's Irish) that night. Each person paid their own way with drinks, but my friend paid for the limo. Also, she made sandwiches and brownies for the limo so people could snack in between bars. Also, this is a pretty sophisticated group of people, not party animals. We drank nice champagne in the limo and had a real blast! None of the guests (or the birthday boy) knew about the limo. We all thought the party was going to be at her house!!

You could make bath salts and soaps. Both are naturally white before they are colored. Bath salts: 1 part Epsom salt + 1 part dried milk. Add fragrance if you want and load into nice jars. Also, homemade soaps where you buy soap base (you microwave the stuff and pour it into a mold) are white. You could get the molds (there are millions on ebay) that are bridal and make soaps with that.

I really like the polka dot idea. That sounds lovely, yet feminine.

Ohh, this one's tough!

Well, I'd go all white and silver with the decorations.

As for food, cheese is white, so perhaps a fondue. Additionally, you can wrap anything into a won-ton skin, so it could also be white. Serve bite-sized whatevers in white Chinese spoons. Breads are white, so bisquits and the sort. Also, dumplings are white.

Also, ask guests to where all white or silver- you'd be surprised how amazing it looks when your guests compliment your decor!

Alright, so what's the budget, here? A few suggestions:

1. Printed golf balls (glow in the dark) with the event/birthday boy's name
2. You can print custom score cards on your computer, which would be cheap
3. Golf ball ball drop that is a pinata, then whack the heck out of it at 12:02am and eat the candy
4. I'd also look at doing something at each hole, so for example, each hole would be a challenge. On the Par 3, give a gift to anyone who is under par. On the hardest hole of the group, give another prize. Maybe Hole 4 they have to do barefoot, or something that doesn't truly effect the game.
5. Name the holes: #1 (the guy's college) Whatever University Hole; #2 hometown; #3 favorite food; #4 type of car he drives; etc.
6. Fill some plastic eggs (Easter) with confetti and let the guys whack at them and spray the place with confetti

Good luck!

Great post- just stumbled past it!

I'm making two christening outfits out of mine- for twin boys!

Anyhow, I agree, children blessings aren't Christian-centric, but more importantly, it's nice to have a nice dress our outfit made and pictures taken of your child in it! I'm more afraid of regretting getting rid of it- that's my concern!

On the other hand, my mom's still hangs in her closet, to never be worn again!

I would use etching cream and etch a monogram in each one-- then incorporate an idea from above (they're really good!)

Send me a list of the wines you've purchased and the foods you want to serve. My hubby is a Fine Wine Consultant (yes, this is a full time job) and a former Exec. Chef of some pretty large country clubs. I'll run the wines and foods across him and type out suggestions for you. If you care to, that is...

Or, send a list of the wines or the food-- he'll tell you what to purchase to pair it with.

He says those books aren't great because it's hard to categorize all wines into one "box". Know what I mean? Shiraz can be very spicy, but also very fruity- it's easy to trick the palette. So- brand matters when pairing...
