40th Birthday Poker Themed Party

On Saturday, I hosted a birthday party for my dh's 40th Birthday. The theme was Poker Night, one of his favorite past times. Here are some photos from the party:

The Poker Table cake made by my brother's gf and her mom. Isn't it cool? It was delicious too!
I served finger foods and snacks. Here are three kinds of, american cheese and hot pepper cheese kielbassi.

Spinach Dip and Beer Bread

Assorted cubed cheese at the request of my dh. I wanted to serve a "real" cheese platter, but he likes this kind. :0)

Of course, the standard vegetable tray with dip, too! We also served breaded chicken wings.
I set up a buffet table in the dining room. I used the green tablecloth to mimic the green felt of a poker table. It is much greener in real life.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out our party food! I will post some photos of friends and family soon!

It looks like everyone was having fun. The cake is beautiful and all the food looks delicious. It felt good to look at your party pics and it was really great of you to center his party around something he loved to do. What a great gift.
