Birthdays and blessings, Part 2
Posted on

When was I younger my dad told me, all you need in life are five good friends. If you can count the number of good friends you have with one hand, then you are rich.
When I was planning my birthday party I wanted to thank the people who have done good to me, my husband, and my children through the years. I tried to keep it small, but the number swelled to 70.
I wish I had the budget for 100! But I had to keep the number down because of the cost.
From one long table, it became two.

I always get a warm fuzzy feeling from Margarita Forés’ food. We always get good service and the feeling after that the party was a success.

I LOVE IT! Okay, I know the theme was inspired by Comme des Garçons, but for me I like it because it’s very Kate Spade. =) And, my goodness, the food! Sarap! Okay, I suddenly want a midnight snack =)
