Today I want to share with you what my family and I did for one of my brothers, George Hoang who turned the big-fat-3-0 on Sunday, May 25th. We decided to throw him a surprised birthday party, BUT it actually ended up being a surprised for everyone! So what happened is that, we first planned to celebrate his birthday at his place, making him buy the pizzas (kekeke) with a few of us being able to make it while others prepping for his birthday. He was happy, but keke we tired to disappoint him in some ways too by also not making it a big deal...as if it is just another day. Our plan worked....
Our plan was to have him drop off one of his son for us to babysit at one of our sisters, Michelle's house later that day. Well, what my family didn't know is that, one of our sisters, Lien and her daughters who weren't supposed to make it....well, THEY DID!!! And boy oh boy was everyone surprised....ONE-BY-ONE, even the birthday boy and his family were surprised!!!
....and once again, the Hoangs unite! hehe Having a big family is super-duper hard for us to get together and when we do, we're very grateful and of course picture time!!!!
Here's what we did for his 30th birthday, the theme was a Mustache theme with some fun decoration....
[Dessert Table]Cookies and Cream Cupcakes (which were a hit!) from Sally's Baking Addiction, Snicker Cheesecake bars from Sally's Baking Addiction, Soft-Baked Monster Cookies from Sally's Baking Addiction, Snicker Bars, Golden Grams and Rice Crispy smores, 30 chips, panda cookies, and M&M's chocolate bars.
We wanted to do a fun "Dessert Table" on the things he love.

Rosette How To: I made different sizes such as 6", 5", 4.5", and 4" Rosettes, all these were scored at 1/2".
I just can't put these 30 different beers on these crates, hehe
so I wanted to make a tag to coordinate with everything else =)
These cute little milk carton boxes were very easy to make
and were filled with his favorite candy - snicker bars.
