How to throw a Bill Murray party

If you follow Offbeat Home & Life on facebook, you may have seen that I was creating a Fantastic Mr. Fox costume for a Bill Murray-themed birthday party. Many of you asked to learn more about throwing a Bill Murray party. So I asked the birthday boy himself to let you in on the secrets to throwing a kick-ass Bill Murray party (is there any other kind of Bill Murray party?)…


The Shark Attackiversary: We use a brush with death as an excuse to throw a yearly party

In 2007 that guy I married was attacked by a tiger shark and survived! So every year, on the date of said attack, we throw Aaron a "Shark Attackiversary" party. It's much like a birthday party, except we celebrate the day Aaron didn't die instead of the day he was born. Since then I've really fallen in love with the idea of throwing a party that celebrates a traumatic life experience that you've overcome.
