#426...happy 40 tyler


Tyler turned 40 last Friday, and we had a big backyard party to celebrate. My sister Sarah created a website invite for his party, as well as a venue logo for our yard. 
For the party we turned our pottery cabana into a craft cocktail bar, and created a menu of food and drinks.



We created a dining area in a large part of our yard. Tyler made several long farm style tables out of the wood he saved from our old loft staircase (seen here).

 We also set up a living room lounge area at the back part of our yard.
We added a bocce ball court, ping-pong table and giant jenga game to 
The Backyard.


Tyler made a lighted game-on sign out of recycled materials and some vintage sign letters that I purchased on e-bay. (I painted the scrabble letter "M"). 

He also made the below hanging sputnik lamp for the dining area out of plumbing and electrical parts.








thanks Julie and Kelly for the photos

How fun! The backyard looks magical and set the tone for a most wonderful sophisticated, yet intimate evening. I marvel at you talent!

Wow! Looks so beautiful -- you opened up a restaurant in your backyard for the evening! Hope Tyler had a fabulous time. Can't get over all the talent both of you have!
