This past Sunday we celebrated my dad's 87th Birthday! My mind had been working on how to decorate for it for a couple of weeks. I went to Joann's Fabrics to look for a remnant that looked "masculine" and found this plaid fabric~only $1.79 on clearance!! THEN I thought of the tie idea (see my Met Monday post) for the napkin rings.
I 'shopped' from my house and gathered up vintagey-masculine props for the center piece.
Here is the back side of the centerpiece. I have a collection of cabinet cards, and gathered all the pictures of men...
Close up of the backside...
At first I had pictures of men under each fork..Steve thought of the bright idea to use women's pics for the women's placesetting!! Brilliant man, my husband!
For place cards, I just typed out everyone's name in a cool font, printed it out on card stock and cut 'ribbons' with decorative sissors, then looped them thru the forks.
My dad was just tickled~ my step-bro and step-sis were able to attend, along with our friends of many years, Bill and Judy. And my step-mom, Leilani, of course!
I had such fun putting all this together!
Happy Birthday, Dad!!
