A Few of My Favorite Things Birthday (22 photos)
What will this day be like, I wonder?
It was fabulous! We celebrated my grandmother's 98th birthday this weekend with "A Few of My Favorite Things" theme. My mom was my fact finder, helping me get all my grandmother's favorite things documented. She has alot! It was a treat finding out things we didn't know. For instance, I didn't know she collected arrowheads when she was younger or that her favorite candy bar was a Baby Ruth.
When family and friends arrived, they wrote a favorite thing about the birthday girl on post-it notes, in the shape of an "H" - her initial. These notes will go in her memory book. My cousin played the guitar, and we all sang, "These are a Few of My Favorite Things" to her. Most of the great-grandchildren didn't know this song, so they all learned something new!
We did have a day full of the sound of music, fun and laughter...Great memories, and looking forward to many more!
I designed all the printables, signs and decorated the church's fellowship hall. My inspiration was from "favorite things" I already had. For instance the chevron fabric, was the inspiration for the design of the invite and used throughout the printables. I didn't buy anything except for the yellow ribbon, flowers, and her favorite things on her table. I incorporated items I had around my house.
