"Hoc vinum Falernum annorum quadragenta est. Bene aetatem fert."

Translation:
"This wine is forty years old. It certainly doesn't show its age."
Cicero (Roman politician, lawyer, orator and philosopher, 106 BC-43 BC)

TIME: 6:59 PM
PLACE: Putter's Bar & Grill
SUBJECT: 40th B-Day Party Necklace

My brother-in-law turned 40 on Monday and my sister gave him a surprise birthday party tonight.  My contribution was these party favor necklaces, modeled here by HandsomeHusband.  My sister and I scanned two youthful photos of Dave and used Photoshop to place the text onto the picture.  We took the files to Kinko's where they filled an 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheet of paper with each photo-12 to a sheet.  They also printed and laminated them for us.  Yesterday, I cut the pictures apart and wired them onto black and silver Mardi Gras throw beads.   All of the partygoers wore them in support of Dave's journey into his 40's.  Happy Birthday Dave!

Christina - Everyone seem to enjoy them, even the birthday boy!

Dot O - I will admit to "borrowing" this idea from my cousin's 50th bday party on January 30th.

My husband will be 50 this July. I don't think he'd go for this, but it is a cute idea!

ETW - Even if you used a "naked baby butt" picture? THAT would be adorable!

Mari said...

What a cute idea. Sounds like you all had fun!

SuzyHomemaker said...

Mari - Even though I could only consume the meatless appetizers (fried cheese ravioli, crab rangoon, fried pickles and veggies) and not eat any hotwings, it was a good time!

Ev said...

Very creative!
