You know I think I am still recovering from my husband’s birthday party that we held in our home over two weeks ago! There are still birthday cards on the counter, and thank you cards to write. Plus a ton of beer and wine left unopened!
All of my new serving pieces that I had to have, are all put away. That was a big challenge for me. I don’t have a lot of kitchen space. So, I got to clean out my cabinets. Which I think feels like I’ve lost weight. I wish that actually worked!
The prep for the party was filled with days of running around town. My sisters were staying at my house so that made everything a lot easier. I relied on their opinion for everything! Even lipstick. Which we all know is a big decision to make on one’s own.
The kids put up with our shopping at the mall. See’s Candies doesn’t hurt either! We got a lot of great decorating ideas at Pottery Barn.
We went to Gram’s Ranch. While the boys climbed in the trees,
the girls were busy cutting olive branches that we were to use in all of the floral arrangements.
Isn’t it beautiful? My wonderful and talented neighbor Ralph made these beautiful arrangements for each table. The flowers were the perfect finishing touch!
And here we are all in the midst of the party. Can you tell we are related? That is my husband Jeff in the right corner of the pic. We were having such a good time, that I didn’t take any other pictures. I do have one of a friend climbing the fence, but I’m holding onto that one!
Thank you to my dear friends and family who were such a large part in making the evening a success! I had such a great night. And most importantly, Jeff had a great time celebrating 50! I love you babe.
