My friend's Dad was turning 80 and I wanted to get him something but seriously, what do you really need at 80? He's a young at heart, totally hip 80 year-old but still?? I'm 45 and there's not a lot that I want so I thought I'd go with something fun.
I know he likes his sweets so I decided to get him some of his favorite candies. 80 pieces of candy to be exact. I hot glued (just a little dollop will do ya) over half of them to wooden skewers and pushed them into floral foam that I had glued to the bottom of a Terra Cotta pot. I'm not particularly artistic so I opted for a Happy Birthday spinny ribbon thing to finish it off.
