I have mentioned (I think) that I was working on a fun party, but didn't give anymore details. Well, the secret is out and I can give the details now! :-) My dad turned 60 on February 10 and my mom and I decided since his master's degree, 50th birthday, and retirement went without any kind of party, maybe we should do something special this time. We decided since his entire life and first love was football, to have a vintage football theme. We sent out the cutest invitations, but for some reason I couldn't get it to load. :-(
This was such a fun party for so many reasons! It was fun to see so many people we never get to see and fun to decorate! Because we invited so many friends from so many different parts of his life, we wanted to include pictures of him at different stages of life. We had some of him and his brothers as kids, high school yearbooks, football pictures, college pictures, coaching and teaching pictures from each place he has taught, hunting pictures, and pictures of him being a dad and grandfather. I decorated this table with a vinyl tablecloth that looked like a football field and decorated with some fun things I found at Hobby Lobby that will now be in Nicholas' football room/Dad's home office at my parent's house.
I was busy and didn't take a lot of pictures, but this is my favorite of Pawpaw and his favorite little man!
It was such an honor to host a party for my dad and to see so many people come together to celebrate him and their friendship. I am so grateful that I was given such a wonderful dad. We love you so much!
