This is 40.
I won’t lie, 40 is hard. It’s the turning over of a whole new page in your life. So what better way to forget about everything that 40 means than to have a Wayback Playback birthday bash!
This party was everything I had hoped for and more: glowsticks everywhere, DJ, catered food, funky birthday cake, costume contest and of course… a dance party! SO FUN. SO ME. Seriously, who wouldn’t want to dress like it was the 80s and 90s again? Fashion was so on point.
Found myself these cute boombox favor boxes on Amazon (love you Amazon!) I added the cassette looking labels I designed and voila, a perfect favor box. Inside was a slinky, a hacky sack, a ring pop, a candy necklace and a Rubiks cube (obviously).
This was my opportunity to try out the latest trend in cake called a Biscuit cake. My take was that I did it with layers of cake instead of cookies AND I decided to go with neon buttercream icing to keep it in theme. The cake was a hit AND so easy to make, thanks to my letter/number pan. I topped the cake with some homemade cannoli, homemade brownies and candy necklace pieces.
So who won best costume………Rose and Jack of course!
Totally rad dude! Do I have to wait for 50 to throw another awesome party?? Happy birthday to me!
