A Birthday Surprise.

4.03.2012

My husband is a champion gift giver...but the hardest person in the world to buy a gift for. Or surprise.

So about 6 months ago, I started brainstorming ideas for his 35th birthday (now that he's officially an old middle aged man. ha!). What I would have loved to do was get all of our good friends/family together for a huge shindig, but since our townhouse is tiny and half of our good friends/family live far away, that wasn't going to work.

Enter the Party in a Box.

I so wish I could take credit for this amazing idea, but I have to give huge props to these lovely and talented ladies for their inspiration:

Amanda Jane Jones and her Party in a Box for her husband's 30th.
Casey Baudoin and her favorite things boxes.
Melanie Blodgett and her parties, etc in a box (this is my current fave)


It was a huge success. Herman was so surprised. And I'm so thankful to our friends that took the time to "celebrate" with us.
