Retirement Reception




Very seldom do I include non-stamping posts, but I thought I'd share some pics of the retirement reception I coordinated for our director of nursing. Decorating the tables was the most fun part of my job! I hollowed out a white pumpkin (in this case I opted for a fake one from Michael's) and had a florist fill it with fresh flowers. I love following photos on Pinterest and saw the idea of using candle holders to bring height to smaller pumpkins. Since my DON lives on a sheep farm, I used the theme "We will miss ewe!". I know...you just can't keep me from using cheesy puns! I didn't include the many pics with staff, but they all enjoyed the food and fellowship immensely! I also helped compile a photo album of all the nursing staff to present as one of her parting gifts. So, this is what consumed much of my time in the past few weeks, but I was happy to do it for a dear co-worker that I will REALLY miss!
