Since this is my scrapbook, I am going to put all the details on here so I won't forget!
Last July, I did a post on Sam and my grandfather, Sam, and called it Sam I Am. I knew then what his first party would be, so I have been planning all along!
These were the invitations and the thank-you notes. Del Harrington did them and they were perfect! Thank you Del! The invitation said:
Will you celebrate at our house?
Will you join us for a treat?
Will you join us just to eat?
Here's a party you don't want to miss!
As Sam I Am celebrates his first like this...
Join us on Saturday, the 2nd of July,
As we sing to celebrate this big guy.
The party's at 10:30, so don't be late.
We'll serve lots of food,
and cake on a plate.
Would you, could you, come and play?
Let us know either way.
I think you can read the thank you notes!
This greeted guests at the front door.
I had guest sign in and write on any page in a Green Eggs and Ham book. I also wrote all the gifts he received in the back of the book. Hopefully he will cherish this, or at least his wife will!
There was some "Chi-O" punch at the door. It is just sherbert, sprite, and ginger-ale, along with green and orange jelly beans and m and m's.
This cute banner was made by my super creative cousin, Ginger! She also made the month signs that I put around the house (one of them is in the picture above).
I will post more later. I have WAY too many pictures for just one or two posts!
