Beer Themed Birthday

This last weekend I threw my husband a surprise 30th birthday party. It took a lot of time and planning; I wanted to make it special. I decide to pick a theme, I went with one of my husbands favorite things...BEER.



This was at the front door to welcome the guests


I found these great baking cups


I used bottle caps and mini beers to decorate the cupcakes





 I made chocolate mustaches and had everyone take a picture


This was one of my favorites


Put the mustaches in an old beer tin




Can't have a beer themed party without beer tasting! 
Everyone brought their favorite 6 pack, we supplied glasses 
with ballets so they could vote on the best and worst beer.


Best Prize: Acme Beer Brittle, Seeds and Suds Mendocino Mustard, 
and a Acme Pint glass, all from the North Coast Brewing Co.

Worst Prize: A Beer Helmet

  
Beer tasting table had cups, dice, cards and
some old beer cans my husband has collected over the years.


The tables were decorated with beer mugs and coasters

The coasters were fun to make, I designed my own print, cut it out and used Modge Podge to glue them on some old coasters.


The beer mug centerpieces, kinda cheesy, but cute at the same time.
I found some gold wrapping paper for the bottom,
then tissue paper topped with carnations to make it look like a foaming beer.


 Even though it was a beer themed party it was kid friendly. 
I covered the kids table with paper, put out crayons, and little gift bags.


I put together four picture frames with all kinds of pictures of the birthday boy.
It brings back great memories for everyone.

I made the chocolate mustaches with a chocolate mold. I found it at bakeitpretty.com they have everything you need to make them and they have some great stuff for parties. They were pretty easy to make and they were quite a hit at the party!
