If you follow along on Instagram, you may have seen a whole lot of photos of the hubs. He hit the big 3-0 this month. We celebrated with a big Whiskey and Cigars 30th birthday dinner party. It was perfect. Here are the details from the party, including links to all of the fab recipes we used. When I say fab, I am not lying. The lemon chicken was amazing!!
We started with these lovely cheese platters. We had a whole setup for the kids with pirates booty and their own cheese and crackers. Along with a snack setup for the kids, we had chalk and bubbles. Finally, we purchased a projector and a screen to run a movie for all the kids in the yard. It was the perfect kid setup. We had a dinner all ready to go so after everyone arrived we were ready to sit down and enjoy. I have included all the links to the items we served. All of the recipes were amazing. Thanks to Thoughtfully for all the fun photo props and confetti pops. It was a nice little added touch.

This was by far one of the best dinner parties I have put together. I wasn’t even stressed out. That’s groundbreaking for me. Lol, usually I’m a crazy person leading up to an event. But this time, I was well prepared, and it paid off. My husband had a great time and it was the best way to ring in 30 with all of our best friends and family.
