Have I ever told you how great my hubby is with birthdays? He always goes way over the top with surprises and every year I feel bad about whatever lame thing I planned for him. Last year was especially lame. I'm going to blame it on the new baby, a first year law student, moving to a new state with no baby sitters etc. I remember thinking "next year will be awesome" and I think it did turn out pretty well. For me, it's all about planning ahead. I can't do much the day of, but if I'm scheming for a few weeks and scouring the internet for ideas a happy birthday is easy to plan. I love throwing parties, so I planned a golf themed party, golf being one of todd's favorite hobbies.

|These cupcakes were so fun and easy to make. The sand is graham cracker crumbs, the greens are sanding sugar, flags are fruit rollups and the golf balls are little candy pearls.|
|That's right friends those golf balls have Todd's face on them. I couldn't decide what theme I should go with for the party, but when I saw this post and Rebecca's idea to have golf balls printed I couldn't resist. I printed with ParGolf.com because they had small quantities available and they were the best price I found.|
