How do I plan, decorate, and successfully pull off a "Nerdy Thirty" birthday party when I have very limited party planning and artistic abilities?

My wife is turning 30 in a month and has expressed interest in having (but not entirely planning) a "Nerdy Thirty" birthday party. What fun! She wants cute nerdy decorations, themed food (with signs describing what everything is), and possibly having people come in costumes. We're pretty geeky and many of our friends are into board games, so that may be involved in some capacity as well.
However, the problem is that I am neither artistic nor good at planning parties. We also don't yet know very many people in the area since we moved here not too long ago, so likely a number of guests would be invited from cities a couple hours away.
Ideas for how to make this go well? I know I have to send invitations (maybe 3 weeks before?) and will want to find a nerdy cake and somehow figure out other theme-y foods and decorations? I'm not a very good cook or artist, but I'm good at following directions! Help me, oh Metafilter!
