I say that gleefully, because she is finally joining me and my decade. So we had a dinner when a bunch of the family was in town for the LSU-Oregon game. Geaux Tigers! The win over Oregon began the weekend and her party topped it off. Enjoy some fun pictures below.
A friend of mine called and said she had 50 red hats. I said bring them on over and we used them to decorate the front yard. They were supposed to be propped on the dowels but tropical storm Lee was in Louisiana and blowing winds all the way to Dallas, (no rain though). We had to slide the hats down the sticks so they wouldn't blow away. But great fun when Joanie arrived. There is a club you can join when you turn fifty, I think it is called the Red Hat Club... I'm not a member, but I hear they have fun get togethers.
I got to bring out some of my fancy stuff.
I love my silver tray that I sprayed with chalkboard paint. The chalkboard markers from Hobby Lobby are highly recommended and they wipe off just like chalk.
I used my ice bucket that we found at Round Top Flea Market. Did I mention we are going back the end of this month?! My Mom has one of these ice buckets, I begged for it, but she isn't ready to give it up yet. So I was so glad when Joanie and I spied the one below at Round Top. Now she and my sister Jill can fight Mom for hers.
As the evening got late the vinyl 50 confetti decorations got moved from the tables to our foreheads. They looked really cute on my niece and a friend.
Not one picture of the birthday girl. Once the party starts I always forget to take pictures.
