Monopoly Game Night Birthday

It just wouldn’t have made any sense if we didn’t throw the most amazing birthday party for the person that is always by my side and supporting me in everything that I am doing. It was his birthday that started this blog, so this was my way of showing him that I appreciate it. Not only is he the best investor, my best friend, my partner in crime, but he is the person I am lucky enough to spend the rest of my life with. It was so tough keeping this all a secret and not telling him anything, I feel so much better now! To surprise him and celebrate his special day I brought some of his closest friends all together. Let’s just say he was speechless!
The theme was a Monopoly game night since he loves playing board games. I decided to make the decorations based on the Monopoly board game since everyone is familiar with it. We used Monopoly money, the frames and instructions were like the Monopoly “Chance” and “Community Chest” cards. I added a lot of hats, mustaches, and bows to match Mr. Monopoly or Rich Uncle Pennybags. There were decorations, a lot of competitive games, sweets, pizza, food, favors, and gifts for the birthday boy and even the winners! I love you Yazan and happy early birthday! Hope you enjoyed your Yazanopoly game night birthday party!
This was the invitation I made and sent to all of the guests.
