Bud’s 80th Birthday Party

It was a good day for Bud.  His kids planned a (somewhat) surprise party for him.  Lots of grand kids too.  It was a beautiful day and folks could sit outside and enjoy the sunshine.  Highlights for the birthday party included a life-size cut out of the guest of honor.  (Reminded me of Duck Dynasty with full camo outfit and beard), lots of food, a song created and recorded about Bud, stories from family and friends. A yummy birthday cake made by granddaughter, shared photos and a slide show.

The bird hunting centerpiece were put together with a 3 sided jar, dried flower pods, a printed wrap around paper label that was placed on a parquet wood floor square, large silk leaf and a spring of pussy willows, with a small bird on the side.
