You’re Still Hot!

Here’s a fun centerpiece idea for any birthday age 40 and beyond. Make several if you have multiple tables. The centerpiece(s) are also take-home gifts. They make clever outdoor table decorations especially if you’re having a BBQ.

You Will Need

  • Ornamental chili pepper plant (note, peppers are not edible)
  • Spanish moss (craft store)
  • Floral foam
  • Various hot sauces, BBQ sauces, spicy meat rubs
  • Wooden crate (Michaels), basket, or something to hold everything
  • Signage (I used a mini chalkboard pick from Michaels, but you can make a sign from paper)

Need a gift for a 40th, 50th, 60th, 70th and Beyond Birthday?
Men really like this one!

Gather hot and BBQ sauces, meat and fish rubs, grill implements, instant-read thermometer, apron. Put everything in a brown paper gift bag with handles (Michaels) stuffed with red and black tissue paper. Write all over the bag in red and black markers with words such as:

  • Happy Birthday Joe…You’re Still Hot at 60! Love, the Kelley Family
  • Sizzle!
  • Burn baby burn!
  • Ouch!
  • Get the fire extinguisher!
  • Third-degree burning going on!
  • Call 9-1-1!
  • Put on the A/C!

It’s all about fun and we’re having tons with this birthday centerpiece and gift idea.
