chic party: Tyler’s SURPRISE 30th!

Tyler, recently referred to as “Mr. Refreshingly Chic”, turned 30 earlier this month!

He is such an amazing husband, father and truly my best friend.  I wanted to celebrate him & wrap him in love on his special day.

So I planned a surprise party!


I made simple, classic invitations which set the tone for the party.


We all enjoyed his favorite foods for dinner.

On the menu … Chick fil A nuggets, sweet potato fries, cheesecake filled strawberries, stuffed mushrooms, chocolate pudding, peanut butter on apple slices and a few other goodies that were extra yummy.


I used mason jars for drinks and added labels so everyone could keep track of their drink for the night.  Practical and cute!


I decorated with photos of Tyler over the past 3 decades.


Using many pictures in various sizes I was able to make a big “3-0” over our favor table.


Using clothes line (purchased for $1) and small clothes pins I was able to display photos on the mantel and over the drinks.



The mantel also displayed the photo booth sign I made. 

We loved having Jessica Lauren Photography at the party to capture so many priceless memories. 

She also snapped fun photos of all our guests in the photo booth I made using wallpaper and fabric banners.

Pulling off a surprise party was tough for me.  I can’t tell a lie or keep a secret!

Luckily I had help from some wonderful family and friends. 

I made a candy bar to thank everyone for celebrating Tyler’s birthday with us.  Each person who helped me with the party (my mom, sisters, mother in law and sweet friend) told me their favorite candy and I filled  jar with their treat of choice.


It was a perfect party, for the perfect guy.


He was (somewhat) surprised and had such a great night with our closest family and friends!


Our family of four!
