Surprise Soiree

my whole family threw one for my dad last weekend to celebrate his retirement.  after working hard to raise seven kids, my parents are getting the free time together they deserve - they just came back from savannah and are off to san francisco soon.  so i put together a travel theme with items i already owned...

coconut + chocolate chip cookie cake was made by my sister rachel.
still love our mason jar tumblers and used my left over price tags from the flea market for drink tags.

the gold moroccan lantern is from here and the black & white pennant garland i made.

caught my sister lisa on the guitar and kept cole from running just long enough to snap a picture of his rosy cheeks.

dean has been obsessed with picking out his socks every morning, this day was no exception
 and i think the stripes + plaid shorts were my favorite combo yet

i feel very lucky to have the parents and family i do.
thanks to my sister sara for coming up with the idea
and to my whole family that worked + traveled to pull it off.
[we managed to keep it a surprise]

congratulations on your retirement dad!
