For my husband's 30th birthday I knew I wanted to do something extra special beyond the normal parties of hanging out in our backyard eating and playing bags. Once I decided on the "Dirty 30" theme, it all seemed to fall into place from there. I decided to have it at a nearby campsite where we could offer our friends the option of staying after the party and camping with us. I knew it would create the perfect rustic site for the party.
Since we are not rustic type people, I wanted to give it a more modern feel. I did this by adding bold black and white stripes to the invite, pennants, and all of the printables. It was such a fun event to plan, and makes it even better when you're doing it for someone you care about! I hope you enjoy the pics!
|I made lots of pennants using colored card stock and a black and white|
stripe card stock I printed myself.
|I used twine and attached the pennants with clothes pins.|
|For the food table I made a banner that said "Happy Dirty 30 Matt!"|
|Matt's favorite dessert are cupcakes from Walmart...so I didn't|
even have to bake! I just created toppers that said things like "Matt is older than dirt"
and "Dirty 30". Then just attached them with clothes pins.
|For table decor I used mason jars filled with rocks and moss then created|
signs and attached them to popsicle sticks.
|I also added some classic pictures of Matt growing up.|
|For the party favor I made edible "dirt" and put it in small jars.|
|The tag says "Dirt" on one side and "Thanks for celebrating Matt's Dirty 30 with us" on the other.|
|In front of the dessert table I just hung pennants but added some pictures of Matt.|
|BBQ Turkey Sandwiches with "30" signs. Yum!|
|For food tents I created the lables, backed them with kraft paper,|
and then attached them to clay pots using cloths pins.
|It was a perfect night!|
