Mountain Man Surprise

My bestie, Dafni accomplished an amazing feat—she put on a surprise themed Mountain Man party for her husband in her home! She used cash and was able to hide the decorations and evidence of food preparations from him. Isn't that amazing!?
She borrowed a few stuffed animals for the walls, found animal figures at the secondhand store, and purchased cheap plaid to create a fun backdrop for photos. I'm withholding some photos here (okay, I'll show one at the end)—but you can imagine some of the pictures we got after everyone left.
My friend had a lovely spread of party food available,
All around the room you could find mountain men photos like this.
Of course prizes HAD to be deer and moose droppings (peanut chocolate clusters).
Cornbread, soda in old fashioned bottles,
and chile were on the menu, with some trail mix and berries for snacking. (The chile was amazing! Dafni has a website with the recipe right here. EVERYONE was commenting on the flavor. It was THAT good.)
Yummy cupcakes for dessert.

Okay, okay…I'll show a little teaser of the photoshoot. I begged my hubby to put on my costume vest. This is what he did, and then I couldn't help it, I later added Dr. Pepper to the image. There are about a thousand great captions for that photo….
