There's nothing quite like a vase of fresh flowers to lift and refresh the home. But unfortunately, most fresh cut flowers don't last very long.

LOVE THIS IDEA!!! Take everyone for a stroll down memory lane with photos of the guest of honor. Include shots from all eras, with lots of friends and family. Unify the images -- and give them classic vintage appeal -- by printing them in black-and-white.
