Party inspiration can come from almost any place. A favorite color, activity, occasion, food, beverage or season can be your starting point.
Recently, several of us joined forces to host a birthday dinner for a special friend. A conversation months ago, during which she professed her love of key lime pie and preference of limes over lemons was what we drew upon. A theme was born! And, green was our color.
The dinner was held outdoors at one friend’s beautiful and elegant home. Chinese lanterns outlined the area for our cocktail hour and the hydrangeas would serve as a backdrop for photos. Everyone was invited to wear WHITE and the photos of the group are truly stunning.
One final thought…this was not a milestone birthday. Just a regular ‘ole birthday. And, sometimes those can be the most fun. While everyone remembers 30, 40, 50, 60 or 70…how many of the ones in between really stand out?
Every birthday or accomplishment is worth celebrating…so don’t wait for the right number.
