I made most of the decor beforehand but my friend Amanda helped me construct a few pieces after we had arrived. I made the banner using my Silhouette machine and the circle garland using my 2-inch punch and paint sample cards. The pinwheels are made out of tissue paper and were definitely a trial and error experiment. They are not as easy to make as they look and I recommend using actual paper as it is sturdier than tissue paper.
A few of Preston's favorite things: Chocolate chip cookie bars, Oreos, Junior Mints, Buncha Crunch and Cheetos.
Confession: Preston doesn't actually like cupcakes so really they made an appearance because I had made cupcake toppers and ordered lemon cupcakes to match the theme.
I had seen these sparkler number candles at my cousin's 30th birthday and thought they were too fun to pass up. They are great for adult birthdays because they don't exactly require blowing out and they are quite fun to light! I found the sparkler candles and the yellow paper cups at Party City.
I cut the letter "P" (for Preston) with my Silhouette and glued them onto the cups.
Happy birthday Preston!
