Monopoly Themed Birthday Party

My husband is turning 36! I wanted to do a themed party for him that he would be sure to like. After much thought, I came up with a monopoly themed birthday party.
So far, this is what I came up with!

Of course, by the time we have the party it will be much more elaborate than this. This is just to give you an idea what kind of party you can create once you have a theme to get you started. My husband absolutely LOVES Monopoly, and he's actually quite good at it too! It was the perfect theme.

I made oversized cards for the tables. Each table is a different color based on the card centerpiece. The one shown has blue plates, etc. because it is Boardwalk. Down the center of each table were oversized dice (one or two, it varied), monopoly pieces, monopoly cards, etc. The menus were color coordinated with the table colors and so were the placecards.

I am in the process of making an oversized Monopoly Game to play at the party. I had this wonderful idea, only to find it has already been done. In San Jose, California they actually have a Monopoly in the park. It is just what I had in mind. When you google oversized Monopoly Game on the internet, you find all sorts of ideas as well. I believe this will be a party he won't forget.

I also found Monopoly coffee mugs which will make perfect favors. And there is a shop on etsy that does Monopoly notepads. The front cover are actually recycled Monopoly cards! What a wonderful theme for a wonderful party!

Happy Birthday Hubby!!!!!!
