Aloha - 60th Birthday Bash!

So after a year Hiatus - I figured why not showcase a party I did last year about this time! My father-in-law turned 60 so we wanted to throw him something special..and that we did.. Leis and all :)

The birthday guy all geared up!!

The cake I made :) - I used Graham crackers to make the sandy beach area 

Basket full of Leis - for the guest to wear for the surprise

Veggie Tray at its finest..

The food spread..

and the tiki wreath I made...

And a little behind the scenes action :)

Keep a look out for the luau wreath tutorial tomorrow :)
