So eight months later...here are some pix of the birthday party/mission farewell we had for Andy. This is a terrible pic, but as usual, my camera was no where to be found so I had to use my phone. I drew out the colors of the Uruguayan flag, white, yellow, and royal blue. It was the end of August so there were sunflowers everywhere, a perfect addition to the table.
I did a picture display on our entryway bench with some mini flags in a garland. We used pix from birth up to graduation and opening the mission call.
I set out some cards and pens for people to write some wishes/goodbyes for Andy. We put them in his scrapbook after he read them.
This was a super easy detail but added a lot of drama- I took strips of crepe paper and cut them in varying lengths and then stitched them together on my sewing machine to create a garland. They mimic the stripes on the Uruguay flag.
The AWESOME cake that my friend Karen made.
One more shot, close up. The detail was amazing and it was delicious! She is super talented!
A little thank-you- mixed kisses and hugs in little paper sour cream containers with a sticker on it that had the address of the blog to keep up with Andy.
