When we celebrated my father's 60th birthday at the beach we decided to put together a bunch of photos from his life. At first I thought we'd make a big poster/collage but then I realized I would have to transport a huge piece of poster board in the car with us which wasn't going to work.
A photo banner was the perfect answer. I took some red and white baker's twine and tiny little colored clothes pins I had purchased a while ago for decoration in our son's room.
Here is one of my favorites. Dad as a little guy playing at the beach.
Below is another banner we put in the window.
A good celebration. Happy Birthday Dad!
