I met up at the initial consult with the sweetest, most soft-spoken southern lady. She begins to tell me all about her handsome hubby, how he’s turning 40 this year …. and she would love to throw him a surprise party but she’s not quite sure what the “theme” should be … or if there should be one. so …. as I would normally do, I ask about the person … what’s he like? what are his favorite hobbies? …. etc.
WELL …. the answers surprised me … to say the least.
Here are just a few:
- he likes ‘lil wayne AND pavarotti
- he likes hermes (and he owns hermes pieces)
- he’s a HUGE social butterfly (i.e. could be the honorary mayor of charlotte)
- HUGE panther fan
- had a pet tarantula and a pet snake
- loves squirrel hunting
- double lettered in fencing and cheerleading
I will keep the rest of his “likes” under wraps – but you get that this guy is a CHARACTER, right?!?
I totally had my work cut out for me. The brainstorming commenced.
All I could think of is – this guy is someone EVERYONE would love knowing … and once they knew him, they probably loved him, loved being around him, loved hanging out with him, loved his infectious character …. so I blurted out the most random idea for an invitation and the whole event took on a life of it’s own.
We came up with a fun “fan club” party invitation since he seemed to have a huge friend base … and let’s face it … who wouldn’t want a party like this …. CHECK IT OUT!
The handsome Greg Olsen made an appearance (swoon)
THIS CAKE! Describes all of his likes + passions … served by none other than “Lil-Lil Wayne”.
