Dave's Office Bday Party

Dave turned 37 this past Saturday and we decided to celebrate him with an Office-themed family lunch... or should I say office luncheon :) 

The party planning committee assembled and put together a super fun afternoon with NO GREEN anywhere!

Dwight, Angela, Pam and 3-hole-punch Jim...

The decor was spectacular...

And the spread of food was "eclectic" :) 

We had Stanley Nickels and Kit Kat bars...

The BEST part of the entire party was the cake!  I ordered it from C Star Cakes in Allen and it was OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!

It was so detailed and FULL of little jokes and lines from the show.

And that's a REAL stapler in REAL jello!!!

The cake tasted delicious (even though we didn't want to cut into it!) and is something that we'll all be talking about for years!

In the birthday episode Jim even wears a name tag that says DAVE and she had that on the cake!

We ate...

... hung out at Cafe Disco...

... cleaned out the microwave...

... tried catching cheese balls in our mouths...

... and there were absolutely no Toby's allowed :) 

Happy (belated) birthday to our FAVORITE Office fan :) LOVE YOU!!!
