Tyler turned 40 last Friday, and we had a big backyard party to celebrate. My sister Sarah created a website invite for his party, as well as a venue logo for our yard.
For the party we turned our pottery cabana into a craft cocktail bar, and created a menu of food and drinks.
We created a dining area in a large part of our yard. Tyler made several long farm style tables out of the wood he saved from our old loft staircase (seen here).
We also set up a living room lounge area at the back part of our yard.
We added a bocce ball court, ping-pong table and giant jenga game to
Tyler made a lighted game-on sign out of recycled materials and some vintage sign letters that I purchased on e-bay. (I painted the scrabble letter "M").
He also made the below hanging sputnik lamp for the dining area out of plumbing and electrical parts.
