I called a fried on mine and asked her to save me some old golf balls. These plus clearance easter grass and $3 vases made wonderful simple centerpieces.
I made adorable table favors with m&m's and chocolate golf balls. The snack sized sandwich bags are the perfect size and the tags are easily created in Microsoft Word.
I also got some swirly green and white lollypops for the kids (and the adults) via amazon and secured them in floral foam and basket filler in this cute little container that cost me $2 at Goodwill.
I made a banner with the same argyle pattern and bought some seriously overpriced balloons from the party store.
Since this was a brunch and kids were included, my mom put together awesome activity bags for the little ones with stickers, notebooks, crayons, puzzles, all picked up from the dollar store. They were a huge hit!
The other surprises for my husband, other than the party itself, was the photo collage that I made with help from his mom and the cake I had made and decorated to look like a golf course. When I told the bakery what I wanted they said "That is going to cost extra." I said I didn't care and would pay whatever it cost, and I have to say, it was SO worth it. The cake looked phenomenal!!!
And of course, this is the birthday boy blowing out his cadres... isn't he cute?
