Come in all shapes and sizes. Entering an 80th year (and an entirely new decade) definitely deserves a celebration. And so we celebrated my mother in law in style. Three generations gathered with close family and a lifetime of friends for an evening of uplifting this beautiful lady.
The treasured gift was from Boombox, which allows each guest to submit their wishes/memories/words of affirmation and photos online. These were then beautifully packaged in a keepsake box and presented to the birthday girl. The invitation was blush pink with gold lettering and the tables and decor reflected that theme throughout. A fabulous meal provided by Stir, ending in a delicious Panini cake which was the crowning achievement of the night. Each guest took home a monogrammed (and quite delicious) cookie by Sisco Sweets.
All I could think about was that we as a family should celebrate in such style more often, in smaller increments. I have always loved looking for reasons to throw a party. So let the 2018 celebrating begin today. Stay tuned to see how we do.
