Inexpensive Table Decorations For A 95th Birthday Party ~ You Don't Have To Go Broke For Table Decorations

I was ask to make 14 table decorations for a Birthday Party.  The party was for a 95 year old man...... what in the world could I come up with that didn't cost me an arm and a leg.

These would be great for a graduation party if you got the ones with the grad hats on.

I found the pieces below at a yard sale.  I ended up paying $3 for 18 of them.  Not Bad!!

So,  what can I do to make them more personal for a 95 year old?   I can tell you, I fretted over this on.

Below, is what I came up with.  I think it still can use something... but so far, this is what I got.

The Theme for this years Party was Neon and Glow in the Dark. Be sure to keep scrolling down and click on older posts to view all pictures. I apologize if you did not get in a picture...after it got dark, it was hard to see anyone.

Don't these balloons add a party atmosphere to the stream?
Hoping the rain holds off while setting up for the party

A Special Thank You To Jeff and Nancy

We want to thank Jeff and Nancy for providing the Jello Shots for the party. They could not be here, but they were not forgotten. See picture below.

Here we have 3 of Jeffs students eating a Jello Shot...... Jeff....I think they need another instruction on how to do a Jello Shot.
