I’m not sure how you felt about the never ending and relentless banter prior to the Presidential election but I can tell you that it wore me out. Regardless of whose “side” you were on I can tell you that I needed some time after election day to turn off the political side of my brain. Then came the holiday’s which always requires an abundance of energy. New Year’s arrived and brought us a 2nd birthday to celebrate with our youngest granddaughter. We took a deep breath and next thing you know we found ourselves at another celebration. Our youngest son and daughter-in-laws reveal party. Yippee it is no longer an it, it’s a SHE! Mind you we have 3 granddaughters and 2 grandsons so there was no particular wish for anything other than a healthy baby. Actually even if we had 5 grandsons our wish would be the same. Healthy, healthy, healthy. Right?!
So that brings us to our next celebration. Our quarterly family adult birthday.
Since we are now 9 adults to go along with the 5 grandkids, we or should I say I, decided a few years back that we would celebrate the adult birthdays in quarters. A celebration for us means call our caterer friend, pick a theme, and let the family know when to show up! This “semesters” birthday theme was Alice in Wonderland. I still had the joy of decorating but past making sure I gave my family the correct time I had very little to worry about. I had purchased a few types of fabric last year around this time at a favorite fabric store in Myrtle Beach, SC. Once I made the tablecloths and runner the rest was basically raiding my event planning closets and purchase a few Alice related items on Amazon. As you’ll see by the photos I think it was a great table scape. I did purchase a cake from a local baker who has a talent for creativity-and her cakes taste great too!
Enjoy the photos and remember what fun Alice in Wonderland has brought so many.
“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
“I don’t much care where –”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”
