He is a Computer programmer, so that gave me the idea of throwing him a party with a theme...A Nerd Party!
The 30th birthday party invitations were computer themed of course, and I decided it was going to be a costume party, and whomever was voted as having the best, "Nerd Attire" received a $20 gift card.(Only catch was that it was a gift card to staples!)
The table tops were covered in personalized pencils saying "Happy 30th Rey" and Nerd glasses, with tape around the nose and all!
I made a large collage poster with photos of my husband of the past 30 years, using cork board, paper clips, index cards, computer keys, and other office type items.The menu consisted of sandwiches, chips and queso, snack trays filled with - veggies, cheese, crackers - Ect. I bought an old keyboard at the thrift store and took all of the keys of it, in order to use them for the snack trays. I glued on computer keys to the corners of the snack trays and I made cheese picks with toothpicks and the keys again.
I also had clipboards with loose-leaf paper so everyone could write Rey a message for his birthday.
We also played a few birthday party games. One of the 30th birthday party theme ideas was, who could make the longest paper clip chain in a minute. I also got some highlighters, transparent tape, and white out from the dollar store, and we played Highlighter and tape spinning, where whomever wrapped the whole thing of tape around the highlighter first was the winner! The whiteout was for whomever covered the black piece of paper first was the winner. We also had Trivia. And of course with games...you need prizes!
We had everything from, pocket protectors, to staplers, dictionary's, crossword books, and Rubik's cubes to give away!
It was a blast and people are still talking about it...and The photos and the memories are hilarious!!
