A few days ago we celebrated my sweet husband’s birthday, and I put together a
pretty handsome table for our little family celebration. Living in a house of all girls, he’s always out numbered and always a good sport when it comes to being surrounded by pink and pretty. Since this was his special day though, I wanted it feel like him. His fav. colour is blue, and I was going for a casual, masculine feel.
Since it was casual (he requested take-out fish and chips for dinner), I started out with butcher paper for the paper, and then added in some easy blue accents. The bunting flags are some that I made ages ago, but usually make an appearance for Father’s Day. They’re made out of old thrifted men’s shirts, and I love all the blue stripes, and checks together.
I even made a mini-version for his birthday pie.
The centrepiece was simple, a beautiful bucket of white hydrangeas with a few pussy willow sticks tucked in.
For a personal touch, I made these sweet little bags of peanuts, one of his favourites. I decorated the bag with every version of “52” I could think of…writing, printing, numbers, roman numerals, even “two score and twelve”. I just used a blue sharpie to add them to the bags, and you could do this for any number depending on how old your birthday boy is.
I love the peanut bags with the plaid napkins.
With a wonderful husband like mine to celebrate, life really is a party!
