Happy 30th Birthday, Chris!

My husband is turning 30 this month, so I decided to throw him a surprise party this weekend! The party was a casino theme.

As guests entered, they signed their name under a number on the roulette table I created! Later on in the night we drew numbers for prizes.
All supplies are Close To My Heart (except green background paper from the Dollar Store)
Stamps - Alphabets, Urban Alphabet, Advent Calendar Workshop; Cardstock - Cranberry, Black; White embossing powder.
Shapes cut from the Art Philsophy Cricut cartridge.

I went to the dollar store and got TONS of decorations - yay! We have these giant martini glasses that we bought for our candy bar at our wedding and I love to put different things in them for different occasions. Here I put in dice, poker chips, and a royal flush of cards.
We had a ton of food, too. I made a bunch of different appetizers, but had lots of help from family and friends!

I have had big get togethers a few times and my go-to for dinner seems to be pulled pork!

Pulled Pork in the Crock Pot
Pork Tenderloin
1 can root beer
1 bottle Bull's Eye BBQ sauce (or your favourite brand)

Set pork tenderloin in a crock pot and cover with root beer. Set on low for 8-10 hours. For the last hour drain the root beer, shred the pork with a fork, add BBQ sauce and mix. Allow shredded pork to remain in crock pot for last hour. Serve with buns and enjoy!

For dessert my sister-in-law made these cute cupcakes.
