Bruce’s 40th Computer Theme Birthday

My husband is a software engineer and loves everything computer. I wanted to highlight his passion on his 40th birthday. I did a lot of research trying to come up with computer theme supplies and ideas, but couldn’t find much. I did find one particular blogger who gave some really cool ideas. Visit her blog here: http://computerparty.wordpress.com/. I had a difficult time figuring out how to decorate! I based all the decorations on 101000 and the colors black, white and silver. 101000 is binary code for “40”. My sister and I recently just went in together and bought a Cricut. While I don’t scrapbook, I loved making decorations for the party. I was very happy with my first project-the banner. I also cut “1’s and “0’s and scattered them on the food tables. I also cut larger numbers and attached them to the window. Other decorations that I used were CD’s hanging from black and silver ribbons.

  1. You are so creative Autumn .. Love this idea..I to have a computer man on my hands and its hard trying to find something to do for his birthdays..Great job!!!

  2. Any pointers on how to create the collage in adobe photo shop? Any idea if there is a template? Or perhaps would you be willing to forward me your template? If not I have been exploring the web for sites that have templates to essentially plop photos into any number collage. I found one that has numbers however it doesn’t allow me to customize it. Any suggestions you may have would be much appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    Laurie

    • I started with a new file the size I needed (20 x 24). Next, I typed the number “40” with a bold font. Then, I added layers of photos on top, using the font as my guide. Finally, I deleted the “40” layer. Hope this helps somewhat!
