Have you seen the Disney movie, Up?
(A delightful movie, especially if you get to watch it in 3D!)
Grand-babe number seven loves balloons so much that his Mama decided to focus on them by doing an "Up" theme for his first birthday. (She out-did herself...again!) The birthday boy wore his "1" tee shirt with suspenders and a little Carl (from the movie)-like cardigan.
As guests arrived at the party, they followed the arrows and signs to Paradise Falls and when they entered the front door, they were greeted with this...
The buffet table was set up with Dug the Dog,(borrowed from a friend!)
...pictures of Carl and Ellie (free images on the internet in dollar store frames)
...plenty of tennis balls, and the big jar of coins, being saved for that trip to Paradise Falls.
The little guests made their own boyscout sashes with merit badges...
...and probably my most favorite detail of the party was that everyone got their own special Grape Soda-pop Adventurer bottle cap pin just like Ellie gave Carl when they met.
Everyone had so much fun!
If you haven't seen Up, you should. There is a great message in this movie, a lot of giggle-out-loud spots, and sweet moments.
