Jimmy Buffet Inspired Birthday Celebration
We had a family birthday celebration for my husband over the weekend--we just moved into a new house so this was our first big get together! Our new backyard has tropical landscaping and my husband is a huge Jimmy Buffet fan (he is actually at a Jimmy Buffet concert as I write this post!).....so we thought it would be fun to host a Jimmy Buffet inspired BBQ!
Going with our Jimmy Buffet theme...we decided to have 'cheese burgers in paradise'. I got my husband a new grill for his birthday and he was excited to break it in!
I made a tropical veggie tray and a fruit arrangement to have with our 'cheeseburgers in paradise'.
We had a few 'boat drinks'.......
I made pillows out of my husband's old Hawaiian shirts to use as decor on the backyard furniture.
I also used Hawaiian shirts to decorate the fence and we used Hawaiian shirt cloth napkins.....and of course we had a few margaritas in 'Margaritaville'!
My son dressed up as a 'cheeseburger in paradise' for the party he made a great mascot and he also took this close up of the hibiscus behind him in the photo.
