Don't you just love birthday parties?
My passion for fun BD parties goes back to my childhood. Somehow my overworked mom organized a birthday party for each of us 9 kids with a traditional Italian ricotta cake and lots of relatives at the party.
A very-good friend of mine, Lily, turned 75 this month. Her family threw a huge, western-themed BD party for her. It was quite a shindig with hayrides, a square-dance caller, a DJ complete with a mirrored disco ball for dancing under the stars, games for the kids and even Texas-Hold’em .
What made the event most special were the people....almost 100, ranging in age from 1 to 85. The best-dressed woman at that party was the 85-year-old Boomer!
Hate getting older? Just be glad you’re still on the top side of the dirt and throw yourself a theme party. (p.s. – with all those candles, don’t forget to have the fire extinguisher handy)
