Bradley’s 40th Birthday

Bradley turned 40 earlier this month. He invited a small group of guys over to hang out around the fire pit and drink whiskey. I used an “Aged to Perfection” theme for the party.

I got this artwork file from an Etsy seller and had it printed 24″ x 36″ at Costco. The poster frame is from Michaels.
I purchased the gold banner from Amazon and glued it to black pennants I cut using my Silhouette.
I set these cute single serving Jack and Cokes in an ice bucket near the fire pit circle.
I didn’t want Bradley to have to do any work for his birthday party,
so I ordered BBQ from our favorite local place, Righteous Que.
I don’t make the most beautiful cakes, but this is Bradley’s favorite icing recipe. My great-great aunt got this cooked icing recipe off the back of a cocoa tin. I added some bourbon balls around the bottom to help hide the mess.
I have been searching for all of Bradley’s favorite bourbons/whiskeys all year long. I was able to find 13 bottles to replenish and add to his collection.
I found this Bourbon Crunch popcorn at World Market to give to the guys at the end of the night.

Happy Birthday Bradley!

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
