Birthdays are kind of a big deal around here. Whether it's a random tidbit, an inside joke, or something you said off the cuff six months ago and only remembered just now, it can and will be turned into a celebration theme, courtesy of our expert Birthday Party Planning Committee. Here are a few highlights...
The number one song on the day Dana was born? 'Night Fever' by the Beegees! Transformed into 'Birthday Fever' by the DeeBees, we applied just enough gold lamé to really bring it to life!!
Kendal was born to be wild and Angie's mad Photoshop skills showed him what that looks like! The rest of the story: Kendal never used this headline when he was at The Daily Sentinel, but we think it's some mighty fine writing! #vroom
Snoopervisor Doodle: Purveyor of fine cheeses and fabulous advertising
“As they say in St. Olaf: hergenbargenflergenflurfennerfen.”
Like L. Frank Baum, we're also "convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones."
We celebrated (Farmer) Angie's birthday by partying like it was 19-harvest time!
Dana's birthday was the first in 2020 and came during a nationwide pandemic shutdown! While we weren't sure how to Celebrate A-part - we know there's a Brawndo for that.
“A good laugh overcomes more difficulties and dissipates more dark clouds than any other one thing.” - Laura Ingalls Wilder
This poster (and that beard/bang combo!) certainly brought plenty of good laughs.
"I comb my hair, and I brush my teeth
I make my bed, and I eat my greens
I wash my hands to keep away from Satan
So no more tricks, and no more misbehavin!"
There may have been a few tricks to replace the cast of The Righteous Gemstones with our own star, Kendal, but we swear we washed our hands afterward.
Breathe. You Need To Calm Down....Ready For It? Get out your Swiftamine because we knew All Too Well that Morgan - who isn't turning Fifteen, or 22 - would have The Best Day with a Taylor Swift birthday theme. Angie has a Reputation for surprising people beyond their Wildest Dreams with signage to fill any Blank Space that has people saying, "Look What You Made Me Do...Gorgeous," and she did! #Swifties - Forever & Always.
The case was elementary for Sherlock "Doodle" Holmes and Angela Wieder-Watson. This pair of super sleuths can crack the toughest of mysteries...as long as there is cheese and unsweet tea involved.
Why, yes, those are camels in the desert desserts, and they were delightfully delicious! No sand was involved in the baking process, but we did turn the office into a desert oAsis, complete with camel puns! Which reminds us...
What do you call a camel with no humps? Humphrey.
Can one birthday save humanity? Yes, but only if it's a Point A birthdAy.
When the birthday boy is a big Justin Cronin fan and there just happens to be a television series based on his trilogy of novels, you get this spot-on recreation.
Diet Coke cupcakes are a thing. Google it. Also, fun fact: there's a cupcake in that koozie because #InsideJokes and #InsideCokes reign in this office.
It's true what they say: a giant spoon full of cupcakes helps the birthday go down, especially when they're served up with a spot of tea. For Michele Poppins, an element of fun is found in every job that must be done.
Project Runway meets Point A!
Kendal was kind enough to share his photo with Heidi Klum for this celebration. She may or may not have given us catwalk tips for this truly fabulous fAshion show.
