Help me throw a party for my husbands first birthday back in the US?!

Question: Help me throw a party for my husbands first birthday back in the US!?
My husband's 23rd birthday is 6/22 & I need help asap! We've been together for years & years and for his past 3 birthdays, he was in Iraq (he was in the Marines but is now out) so we havent done anything in quite some time to celebrate his birthdays!. Its kind of short notice, & its a little crazy since we both just started new jobs & are still unpacking from our move, but we both have off the day of and after his birthday so I was thinking about throwing him a surprise party!. Our apt!. is small & I dont have much money to spend on it!. I do cook & bake, so if anyone has any good ideas for food, I would def!. try them out!. He's a musician (sings, plays bass and guitar), is very active, is starting school to be an english teacher & wants to write screenplays, loves movies, he's VERY social, if that helps!. I want it to be really fun & special, but I have no idea as to a theme or some fun ideas!. I love diy, thrifty ideas are great! Friends also live nearby so thats not a problem!. Thanks!!Www@FoodAQ@Com

does your apartment building have a room to use for parties!? or do you know someone else in an apartment complex that has a room to use or anyone with a bigger house or yard to use to host the party at!? then ask friends and family all to bring a dish to share to cut back on cost for you and then you just pick up all the beverages and booze- and make the cake of course! check out Goodwill and thrift stores for extra serving dishes and head to the dollar store for party decorations and paper plates/napkins/utensils!. to make it a surprise and make sure he's there you can send yourselves a fake invite to someone elses surprise party at the location it will be held!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The name on the dog tag should go where it would traditional go, what I did was, a good memorable present would be think of how old he is, and for each year he has been alive, give him one good memory that happened that year, for example if he was 18, give him a graduation ballon, etc!.!.!. Do traditional party ideas, invite his friends, BBQ, T!.V, whatever he likes!. Good luck!!!!Www@FoodAQ@Com
