I´m working on preparations for a Birthday Party
It´s actually my Birthday Party.
I had the big 5.0. birthday in January
January 1th in fact - and who wants to go to a party on January 1th
Not any I know - not me either
so I decided to have the party in March instead
I have to tell you this is a big deal for me,
being a very private person and a homebuddy, I´m not much for parties.
Last time I held a party was when I turned 30
I haven´t had a birthday party in 20 years
so you see.... this really is a big deal
and I´m kind of scared and close to regret too
as the party is getting closer - it´s on saturday - uurrggh :-)
I´m enjoying the preparations though
No one in my family reads here, so I´m going to show you
what I have been working on
these are for the name cards.
Little salt and pepper shakers - customized for every guest.
I´ve found some vintage images symbolising something personal
for each of my guest - something they like to do or have as a hobby.
I won´t tell anybody, so I´m excited to see if someone will notice
these pages are old magasin pages from a weekly Danish Magazin
called Ude og Hjemme. They are from 1879-1880.
I´m going to place them as place mates
under each plate - if the conversation goes slowly
we can always talk about what happened in 1880.
These are going to be next to every plate.
It´s the menu.
I´m going to have the food delivered so we - hubby and I,
don´t have to do all the cooking ourself.
It´s a buffet - hopefully it´ll be good.
At least there´ll be great wine - we bought that :-)

Here´s the menu inside.
The table cloth and napkins are cream collored
and I´m going to place all my silver candle holders
along the middle of the table with white candle in.
I hope it´s going to be a great looking table.
I hope the party will be a great one too.
Wish me luck and send some steady nerves my way.
Wishing you all a wonderful and calm day
