Surf Party

Aloha 40!
My husband turned 40...we went with the Surf Theme..
It was a fun party to plan without falling into the typical "Hawaiian" theme
Aloha is a great word to use for a banner, It means Hello, goodbye and Love...
In this case "Hello 40..."

This was the dessert table and sweet table
Instead of a cake, homemade cupcakes with plastic surfboards as decorations. I ordered the surfboards from Amazon.
These were easy...slice and bake sugar cookies with slivered almonds = yummy sand dollar cookies

Liquid Aloha is a perfect name for the drinks
This time liquid aloha = liquid love

These were a hit!
Jello Shots in oranges!

1 package of Jello
1/2 cup Vodka
1/2 cup water
3 oranges per package

pour 1/2 cup boiling water over one package of jello, stir in 1/2 cup vodka. Previously. cut in half oranges and carefully remove orange sections and pulp. Pour mixed jello in oranges and chill over night. When ready to serve, cut each half into thirds.

How cool are these! Longboard Beer! Look around there are great Beer Labels!

Pipeline Punch and Longboard Lemonade were the mixers..
For good "Surf Theme" words check out

Fruit Kabobs, easy and always a hit!

The menu was Bar-B-Q....yum!

Happy Birthday!
