weekend away

i am sure my mother won't be angry
when i tell you 
she turned 70 this weekend
or as my nephew described it
even par
(a golf term for those of you scratching your heads)
my mom is a very young 70
which means
she not only looks great
wrinkle free and fit
but 
she enjoys life
is positive and strong
her birthday wish
was a weekend away
so i went about
organizing for our party of 11
a trip to san francisco
we had a blast
while the weekend was filled with lots of little events...
a great lunch at the slanted door
wine tasting in napa 
the weekend was culminated with
a dinner party
 at an amazing restaurant called
i wanted to put a theme to the event
so my hubster created a logo
and i made things to put it on
and then silkscreened well into the night
and I would like to share with you
what we did
because i think we did a good job
and i am pretty proud
linen gift bags with old-time candy
linen napkins with silk-screened logo
cd with 1940s big band music
and how it all looked at the restaurant

where are pictures of the birthday girl you ask?
well
she is shy
and won't be making an appearance here 
you will have to take my word 
regarding all her attributes

  1. My mom turns 50 in a couple months and we are so excited to throw her a party but she has already set up all sorts of crazy rules for us like no suprises, no talking about memorable moments, no large groups of people....blah blah...oh well it will all work out. it looks like your party turned out great!!
