    Hi all! Been a way for a while but I'm back - with a question already!!

    It's my other half's 40th this year - not till Dec but I'm trying to be organised! I'm throwing a surprise party and got a possible venue which nice but will need some decorating to jazz it up and make it extra special - I want everyone in black tie.smart dress etc and I want it to all be lovely!

    But I'm having the usual problem - crafting for a girl I always have loads of ideas but for a BOY who knows!! He likes the colour blue, he's very into mountain biking and the party will be taking place around Christmas time. There will be a finger buffet so a few large tables and a few smaller tables by the bar - am thinking tabelcloths and center pieces etc and also banners etc but I want to make it all myself.

    Any ideas will be gratefully appreciated!!! Because I feel like this:

    Hiya,

    Don't know if this will help at all, but I just decorated a Wedding Reception recently with a Winter Wonderland Feel, as it was near Christmas. The colour scheme was silver and dark blue and it looked fab, would work well for male or female. If you want some ideas check out my Creative Styling site/blog, details under my signature below.

    Good luck!

      OH. MY. GOD!!! That is just PERFECT!!!!! Thank you so much - that would be the perfect way to do it and will look brilliant!!! Oh thank you thank thank you!!! I love this forum!!

      Well done you for coming up with such a good idea - I love the pics - it looked like such a simple and stylish but beautiful design! I'm sure it'll be ever more popular as well as Winter Weddings seem to be on the rise.

      Thank you!!!

        Ohhhh I'm so glad I could help hun. It could be quite inexpensive for you if you get the twigs for the centre pieces from your garden and spray and wire them together yourself. Also we brought battery operated tea lights to put all around the room so we met the venue's Health & Safety Policies on Fire etc.... but it was still a very effective look! You could also blow up black and white photo's of your OH and have them on wire stands in the centre of each table.....you have to do something a little embarrassing for the Birthday Boy!!

        Good luck with it! xx

          Don't worry - his Mum has already got a whole collage planned!!!

          Yep that's why it's brilliant - not just becuase it's cheap but it'll look very effective and I was having issues thinking about center pieces as the obvious choice would be a candle but had already thought about H&S issues - so twigs etc would be great and looks fantastic! And if I get some of those battery candles that would eb lovely too!

          Oh thank you so much - I'm very excited now!!
