Creative Touches for the Big 4-0

I had the pleasure recently of working with a client on her husband's surprise 40th birthday party.  We chose a downtown Nashville lower-Broadway bar.  She wanted a fun honky tonk for the event.  We brought in Todd's favorite food, including Hog Heaven barbecue and beans, the Park Cafe's truffle mac-and-cheese, and his mother-in-law's famous Bundt cake.  To commemorate his 40th birthday, 40 different custom-designed photo cards were made by LisaMarie designs for the event.  On the front featured a favorite photo of Todd throughout the years, and guests were asked to write a note or funny memory on the back.  All 40 cards were strung on twine throughout the bar.

Custom monogram napkins and "Todd's Toddies" napkins were placed at the bar.

Custom stir sticks were made featuring the rustic wood and a chocolate brown "S" for their last name.

My client, Todd's wife, had  custom gallery wrapped canvases made of pictures of his favorite places.  We lined the walls with these canvases.  

Whether it's the big 4-0 or another monumental birthday, little touches go a long way to make the party special for both the guest of honor and your guests!
