Corey’s 30th Birthday

Believe it or not, I wasn’t originally planning on throwing Corey a party for his 30th birthday.  His big birthday present is a trip to New York at the end of July to see his favorite soccer team.  But then I thought about it, and I decided I would feel like a bit of a jerk if I didn’t have some kind of group gathering for him.  Instead of throwing it at our house and going crazy with decorations like I normally do, I decided to make it at a local bar called VBGB Beer Garden (which means that there are a lot of beer options, but not actually a garden I don’t think) and make it a surprise!  Spoiler alert, it wasn’t a surprise.  Because I am a bad liar, and because he automatically assumed that I was going to throw him a party anyway.  Oh well.  We still had a great time with all of our lovely friends.

I kept things simple with some easy cupcake toppers (download here – Birthday Cupcake Toppers) and candle centerpieces using some printables from Oh Happy Day.  I made the cupcakes using this recipe and Megan finished off with the frosting using the same chocolate buttercream from last year.  I can vouch for the deliciousness.  Many thanks to Megan for setting things up so I could bring the birthday boy late.  She’s a gem that one.
