Mr. Fiance turned 30 back in August and thought I'd share the surprise celebration I planned. (Better late to share than never, right!?)
He wanted to get away for a few days so we headed down to the Fairmont Turnberry Isle, which is in between Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. It was fabulous! A great golf course, relaxing spa, awesome pool with lazy river, delicious restaurants — we didn't even need to leave the hotel. We had gotten engaged the week prior so we had lots to celebrate and enjoyed being able to just relax at the pool.
I got a bit crafty and here's how it turned out:
I jazzed up the napkins by using a stamp and sprinkled on a little glitter just after stamping to add a little pizazz.
I made a few printables — a sign I put in a frame and a quiz on the year he was born. And yes, that is the Lilly dark 'n stormy pattern you see! Don't tell the Mr. ;)
I also made a banner and a few other fun party items.
I made chocolate-covered oreo pops and stuck them into a styrofoam block that was edged by scrapbook cardstock I cut out and glued on. I also had a bucket of TGV's favorite gummy candy.
On the other side, I had a box of cookies in the shape of 30. I also created a signature drink called the "Dirty 30." Click on the picture to see the recipe. It is really called a "Man Cosmo" and uses Red Stag, but — it was not good at all. Whoops!
Here is the banner I made! I used different scrapbook papers and cardstock and cut them all out and strung them together.
Fun times! Cheers to great celebrations.
