Having a {Paint} Ball! Birthday ideas

My husband had the poor planning to be born just before Christmas, so making sure his birthday is celebrated often takes some ingenuity on my part. One year I threw him a surprise party in June for his half birthday. It was a great party (I’ll have to blog about it sometime), but he was so surprised, I’m not sure if he enjoyed it or not.

This year, I had his friends kidnap him for a paintball adventure. I showed up at lunchtime with birthday cake and goodies. This is the easiest cake I’ve ever done! (Simplifying is not my forte, but I am learning).

I purchased the 3-layer motherload cake from Claim Jumper Restaurant and decorated it with Everlasting Gobstoppers (affiliate link). It is amazing how much they look like paintballs–only smaller.

I also brought fun, colorful Jones Soda bottles (affiliate link), and bright colored paper goods.

I made a sign with colorful paint splatters, which said, “It’s your birthday, have a BALL!”
I think he did!
