My sister-in-law's husband Rob celebrated his 40th birthday last weekend, of course the event couldn't go unnoticed, or even creep by quietly! What a fabulous party it was! Myla wanted Rob to have a giant water slide bump and jump, and it was a huge hit with all the kids.
Christie and I spent the entire morning making Rob's bouquet and birthday cake. The bouquet was an idea I found on pinterest months ago and had been saving specially for this day. The cake was an idea Christie found and modified. Since we had a Jack Daniels theme going we spice the home made butter cream frosting with a few teaspoons of Jack Daniels, and WOW! it was amazing. We had so much fun creating these two special gifts for Rob. Rob absolutely loved them, and they were a big hit at the party.
The next one will be Carrie's( years away), and we are already making plans for her big day cake and goodies.
Learned: Using fondant was way easier than I thought, hot glue guns are miracle workers, and a morning spent crafting makes for great memory making.
