Golf Themed 30th Birthday “Par-tee”

Golf themed birthday party

With a golf lover in my own house, I know just how fun it can be to throw a party around your husband’s favorite hobby! This GOLF themed 30th Birthday “Par-tee” by Rebecca Martinez is full of clever and witty treats, details, and decorations…from  gator cookies, and rice krispie “sand traps” to golf ball cake pops!

Not only did guests enjoy an array of sweets, but they got to participate in a golf costume contest and chipping contest too! Incorporating creative activities for all ages is a great way to keep the party fun & exciting all night. This hostess definitely hit a hole-in-one with this fabulous golf-inspired birthday party!

{FLASHBACK!} High School Inspired Party

When Apartment Guide designed a challenge to “create an entertainment area or tablescape and throw a party in that space, within the next 10 days,” Caley of How Does She set out to time travel back to the days of HIGH SCHOOL! With cafeteria trays as her inspiration, Caley created a FLASHBACK menu full of tater tots, square pizza (remember those days?), milk cartons, pudding, and lots of other cafeteria eats! High school photos of the guests were combined to create a photo garland hung around the room. My favorite part? Guests arrived dressed up as their favorite High School Stereotype!
