Last month my father-in-law turned 60 years old! That is a huge milestone in a person’s life! The more I thought about it, the more I felt that he needed to have a party. It didn’t need to be huge, but still a party. I got my sister-in-law’s all together and be planned a special day for him!
Of course we had a couple different directions we could have gone with this party. The traditional “Over the Hill” with everything in black, gosh that seemed so depressing. My other thought was to just have some fun colors and use ideas from his every day life.
I was very lucky to have found Birthday Express to assist with my decorating and took some stress out of the planning. The brightly colored and cheerful kit is exactly what this party needed and I loved that the kit came with everything in one box. Birthday Express is your source for over 150 birthday party themes, offering complete packages to make your birthday party special.

What we received in our kit:
Streamers (2 colors)
Balloons (2 colors)
Ribbon (2 colors)
I’m sure you are wondering about the cake! My father-in-law drives semi for a living, and when I say drives semi, I mean he is on the road A LOT! So, it seemed only right to get him a cake that looked like his semi. I have a fabulous cake lady in Iowa and she did not disappoint!
Of course, what is a party without gifts? It is a little know fact that my father-in-law loves all things Iowa Hawkeye. We decided that tickets to a Hawkeye basketball game would be a great gift, I hope that he enjoys them!
We ended up having a wonderful day celebrating with family, food and fun! Happy Birthday to a wonderful man, who raised some pretty amazing kids! I’m blessed to be apart of your family and life.
