So, my father-in-law was turning the big 6-0. Hitting a milestone like 60, calls for a celebration, a party, a SURPRISE party!!!
My sister-in-laws Leanne and Katy planned out the entire event. Everything was beer themed. From the beer coaster “happy birthday” sign to the beer caps in vases centerpieces. Even a beer cake:
Besides making my famous stromboli (Ok, ok maybe not FAMOUS, but they are delic) I was responsible for creating a “history through the years” display. Basically highlighting significant facts, events, pop culture, history for each decade that my father-in-law, Paul, has been alive.
Leanne and Katy purchased these 8.5×11 frames for a couple bucks at IKEA. I printed out each decade on a piece of 8.5 x 11 photo paper, added them to the frames…and done!
The display looked awesome on the mantle as a decoration for the party and it made for a great conversation piece.
I searched many websites high and low to come up with this comprehensive list of facts for each decade and pictures to go along with each decade. From 1950 – 2000.
Feel free to use these print-outs at your next party! Click the link below to download the PDF:
It’s perfect to display for anyone’s 40th, 50th, 60th birthday party or for an anniversary party.
Enjoy the look back at decades past!
