Last week was my husband’s birthday and I wanted to throw him a party that encompassed who he is… manly, adventurous, & funny. So that was my theme!
MANLY – To create a manly environment I choose the colors: black, white, red, with a hint of blue. I also went for the grunge look because guys are messy.
ADVENTUROUS – What better way to be adventurous than to go rock climbing. We invited our friends to go the the rock climbing gym first & then later come over to our house to celebrate with cake, ice cream, and games.
FUNNY – My husband loves to quote movies, so I came up with the idea to play “Can you Guess the Movie?”. Using picmonkey.com I added popular movie quotes onto pictures of my husband. I developed the pictures I created at Walmart for only $3.85. I then wrote the name of the movie on the back of them, so people could flip them up to see if they guessed correctly.

We also played the game Left Center Right. To make it more interesting everyone bet $1 and the winner took home the pot.
A birthday isn’t complete without cake & ice cream. My husband insisted on brownies instead of the traditional cake. I used black, white, & red icing with a grungy look to keep with the manly birthday theme.
Happy Birthday Chad!
