Today’s Real Party feature is just way too much fun! This refreshing & unique “Grumpy Old Men Day” was submitted by event planner Jesi of Jesi Haack Weddings, but the idea was actually dreamed up by her husband Ryan as a clever way to celebrate their friend’s 30th birthday.
(BTW – Ryan Haack also shot these amazing photos, which honestly look like they came straight out of a cool magazine spread! Check out his photo blog here.)
Read on for a full rundown of the day’s events, as told by Jesi – and more fantastic images from Ryan…
“The Ultimate Man Party! Who says girls have to throw all of the fun parties??
Here is an amazing day of craziness involving a 30th birthday, old men clothes, coughing, pipes, and other dude shananigans that will make the women proud and the men jealous…
5:00 am – All friends secretly meet and put on their wardrobes (thrift store old men outfits)
5:15 am – Surprise Issac (the Birthday Old Man) by waking him up with major coughing and hacking
5:20 am – Style the Birthday Old Man in the previously chosen thrift store attire
5:30 am – Arrive at the local donut shop and read newspapers in the dark
6:00 am – Longboarding at local surf spot
9:00 am – “work on the car” time (not in the original plan, but the battery died from leaving the lights on)
