One thing Jared does love is friends and family. So I asked them all to email me a photo of themselves holding a happy birthday sign, had the pictures printed in a large size, and stuck them all up on the wall in the middle of the night.
For my family photos, I made some fun little party hats using the template at Oh Happy Day. I glued some pretty papers to plain white cardstock before cutting them out with the template. Very easy and festive!
