Hugh & Toni's 40th Birthday Bash

Toni C By Toni C  in Birthday


Party Recap

Hugh and I both turned 40 in April. So, we threw ourselved a party! We've earned it! We used New York City as our theme, as it is our favorite place to visit. The colors were red, black and white. We served Italian food and a delicious cake that was decorated with an NYC skyline by a talented friend of ours. There were special little touches like the favor tags that did double duty on the vases, as well (made by TomKat Studios), a handwritten menu board that was hung, photos of NYC that were used on the tables. It was a wonderful night. Love was all around!


Party Highlights

  • Best Moment

    The best moment was when my childhood friend Lisa surprised me by bringing her mom. Her mom was my "other mother" growing up and is a cancer survivor. It was a priceless moment.

  • What People Ate

    We had three choices of pastas to choose from, there choices of meats, and three choices of sauces. We also had Ceasar Salad and breadsticks.

  • Funniest Moment

    We had a quiz that we had our guests take. When we were reading the answers, it was hard for everyone to hear. My brother-in-law said "I have a bull horn in my car!" and ran out to get it!! I asked why he has a bull horn in his car, and he said "just in case I need it." Well, we needed it and it added some humor to the evening.


Party Helpers

  • Jacie Ames


    Jacie is a senior in high school who loves to take pictures! She also owns her own photography business. I had her come to the party and take pictures of everything. It was one of the smartest things I did.
