I'm having a 40th birthday party for my husband. I have no ideas on what to do about a centerpiece. There will be 5 round tables. The table cloth will be navy blue and the napkins (cloth) are a cream color (close to beige). He loves baseball, Jeeps, and electronics. Please help.

You could make a ball diamond from green plastic tablecloths. Add all the markings and fill paper bags with popcorn, with some peanuts in the shells scattered around for decoration. Guests could munch on these while visiting. A few party horns would also look great around the diamonds. Good luck.

I would like to do something creative for my husband's 40th birthday. I went to an event where they had dump-trucks filled with flowers for the centerpiece and my husband thought that was pretty cool. He is a big mopar car fan and I want to incorporate his love for cars in the centerpiece. I know there are many ideas with tablecloths and the whole bit, but I'm really just looking for centerpiece ideas. If anyone could help I'd appreciate it.

Use the miniature cars as part of the arrangement. Say if you do a flower centerpiece you can put the cars on sticks and put in the arrangement. Sunflowers aren't too feminine and would be great for a guy's party. Or just use grasses.

I know some of the miniatures are a bit bigger and you could use the beds as toothpick holders, or even for candles if it's an evening party. (05/19/2005)

That sounds like a great idea! I like the grass with the cars displayed on top, it's like a car show on a lawn. He will love it. Thank you very much for your post. I will send a post when I have the party and give feedback as to how it went and what everyone thought. Thanks again! (05/23/2005)
