My dad officially retired this year! Congrats! My brother and Jan had a great idea to throw him a retirement party and the party planner in me was unleashed! It didn’t take me long to come up with a perfect theme. My dad was in the Air Force and worked for the airlines for a bit and has always enjoyed anything to do with flight and planes. So we created a First Class retirement party for the Captain!
We had a great backyard BBQ with friends and family and had enough BBQ chicken to feed the block! All the airplane/travel themed party ideas will be shared in various craft project posts and you can look forward to DIY boarding pass invitation in air mail envelopes, fringe streamers, luggage tag silverware and MORE! I also created an inspiration idea board here at pinterest!
We also had old fashioned bottled cokes, a garden salad from our veggie garden, beers, a jello and potato salad my aunt made and two delicious pies our family friend Ann made.
The show stealer of the party was Baby Connor who’s new best friend is Brad.
All I taught him was to do a senior portrait pose…
