Retirement Party

The first of my aunts and uncles just retired. My uncles kids threw him a retirement party this weekend and they did a good job. They didn't even ask for my help! I know, right. I kept waiting for the email or phone call ha ha

When we arrived the Bucket List awaited us. My uncle use to fish so this bucket list fishing theme was perfect.

Bait buckets of Oreos with gummy worms were a hit with the kids.

My uncle loves to golf now so his kids set up a small putting green for us to try our hand at the sport.

Wine glasses with names of golf courses my uncle has played at. I'm not sure if my cousin did this on purpose or not, but you have the greens and the blue tablecloth looks like it represents the water to me.

For the BBQ I made my Peanut Butter Chocolates. Since my uncle likes golf, I made sure to use my golf ball mold.

Yes, I have a lot of molds
I made sure my uncle got some by packaging some up just for him.

I think my cousins did a good job with this party. With a little help from Pinterest :)
