A Pirate Looks At 40: A Jimmy Buffett Inspired Birthday Party

It's really hard to believe we're here already...40 years of age. Even though I still have a few more months before I hit the big 4-0, it's still hard to believe that it's just around the corner.

My husband isn't a huge fan of parties but I knew that we needed to make this one a little special.

When I met my guy in high school, he always wore Hawaiian shirts...and they we're really cool back then either. 😉 But he wore them because he LOVED Jimmy Buffett.

JB has an awesome song called "A Pirate Looks At 40" and I knew it would be the perfect theme.

I jumped on Amazon and ordered some party supplies, pressed off his old Hawaiian shirts, and brought out all my older Happy Everything! plates and serve ware, along with a few new pieces and it all turned out beautifully.

His cake was the cutest cake I've ever seen. We ordered an almond flavored cake (his favorite) from our favorite local cake maker and she did a fantastic job making it Hawaiian style. Isn't it the cutest?!A Pirate Looks At 40: A Jimmy Buffett Inspired Birthday Party
