My grandfather just had his 80th birthday party. And we decorated the tables with different themes from his life. Hes liked a lot of things & had a lot of hobbies
We did a three tier cake from the Sugar Mama, representing the three Biggest parts of his life. The Navy, being a barber and his faith
When he was 17 he raced motorcycles
He loves to golf & at one point in his life was really into growing roses
He was really into NASA and the space program & collected space patches
If you know my grandfather, you know he loves the 4th of July. He leads the 4th of July parade in his neighborhood
Taking pictures was also another big hobby of my grandfathers.
A good shot of the cake table
And all the pretty cupcakes
When my parents were married, my grandmother on my fathers side, knew a man who did drawings. He did a sketch of my grandfather as a barber & with a camera that my grandfather used on all his business cards. It became his little logo. For the party a good friend of my grandmothers changed it to fit all the centerpieces.
