Loved photographing this Pinterest-inspired SURPRISE 50th birthday party soiree hosted by my friend, for her husband! She REALLY outdid herself with the decorations, using childhood pictures for the slideshow and making all the awesome wall hangings and face hand-fans. The extra fun part was the custom-made photobooth she brought, along with all the fun props! How crafty is she?! They just happen to own and operate The Oklahoma Photobooth Company, so they know a thing or two about throwing a party! I am AMAZED at how she was able to pull everything off without him knowing A THING until they arrived at the venue! He “thought” they were attending their neighbors 25th anniversary party! The OKC THUNDER were playing on TV that night, and he told her on the way to the party that he was ONLY staying until half time! BOY was he thrown for a loop! Luckily, there were big screens all around so he did not miss one hoop! :) There were so many people involved in pulling off this event! Let me just say, the management at Fox and Hound were awesome and totally accommodating with the sound system and even letting their regular restaurant guests participate in the gig!) The song “Big Bad John” was played as he came in and the guests all held up the face fans with his pictures on them! It was so much fun to be a part of!!
Louise, you ROCK for getting it all together! and HAPPY 50TH John… here’s to another 50!!! Glad I was able to capture these memories for you! Here’s just a few from the night! ENJOY!
Until next time!
Be a blessing,
