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.
This collection of treats celebrates jolly, ole Santa Claus in the classic Christmas colors. The santa face embellishments are pre-made royal icing pieces that make decorating quick and easy. Instructions for these treats can be found on Country Kitchen SweetArt website.
I had a lot of fun creating treats for my daughter’s cupcake birthday, so I repeated the theme, adding candy canes, for a “Sweet Christmas”. Directions for these treats can be found here: Country Kitchen SweetArt
Each family was given a goodie bag to take home. The bag consisted of more of the same treats that were on the dessert spread.
It’s a little morbid, but I turned my kids into Halloween characters using adobe photoshop and framed them in a gothic frame.
