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.
