Fast forward through the years as this girl, Patty, had many private celebrations of her special day... but still no grand, planned event... UNTIL SATURDAY NIGHT!!!
Oh, my goodness! We were invited to an Italian-themed birthday party to celebrate Patty's 70th birthday, and her welcome said it all, "This party is dedicated to my high school classmates and to my family and friends," she said. "It has been 54 years in the making!" Let me say I would need all 54 years to get such an event organized, cooked-for, and decorated.
My son took me and stayed the evening in the celebratory vintage building, bedecked with Italian colors, delightful streamers, and absolutely delicious and beautiful food. The place was full of laughter, friends, DJ sixties and newer music, played by one of her former classmates, and an array of Italian foods.
The table of cheesecakes, cupcakes, and bread pudding was stunning.
It is difficult to say exactly how many yummy pizzas they cut and served. She also sent home some pizza with a lot of friends and family.
Whimsy and Hugs!
