And don’t you forget this! There’s no better way to personalize a party than by embedding photographs. One of Julia’s all-time favorite family photos is the one taken on the day of her mom’s graduation from nursing school circa 1953. The look of pride in Julia’s mom’s and gramma’s faces is priceless. It didn’t take Julia long to decide to feature that photo prominently at their joint birthday. It appeared in everything from the welcome sign at the event, shown here, to the save-the-date card, and in stylized form on the menu footer and place cards.
