Humorous Mid-Life Crisis Casino Style 40th Birthday Party – Event of the Week!
I love people who can laugh at themselves and take an occasion that gives so many of us the heebie-jeebies (turning 40!) and take it head on with grace and humor. That is why I love this fun, witting “Mid-Life Crisis” casino style 40th birthday party from Debbie at Wants and Wishes.
When planning her 40th birthday party she wanted to embrace the mini midlife crisis she joked about having and incorporated a creative Casino theme into the party. Take a look at some pics!
Everything in this party is so well-done. I think my favorite aspect is the martini olive cake-pops – genius!
Want to know more about this dessert table? Here is what Debbie had to say (quoted from Kara’s Party Ideas):
We has so many fun sweets and treats. I made Sprinkles Bakes Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cake Cheesecake! It was so incredibly delicious! We decorated it with king and queen toppers and chocolate poker chips that I homemade. We also had sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies in the shapes of all four playing card suits. The chocolate chip cookies were packaged in favor bags and we made ice cream sandwiches out of them later on in the party. There were also Elvis cupcakes (which have banana and peanut butter frosting with bacon bits in banana cupcake batter), homemade marshmallow “dice”, red Liquor-ish, little shot glasses of Chicklets (they looked like bingo balls) and my favorite dessert… olive cake pops. I took an over-sized martini glass filled with red candy, then displayed the “olive” cake pops in there! It was the hit of the night for sure! We had dice patterned favor boxes for the guests to fill up with treats and take home.
