The "Mad Hatter" Birthday party for my 75th was a party beyond my wildest dreams. My sister Donna brought the Amtrak and spent several days. (does she look 80??) and our dear friend of more than 40 years Tom, flew out from Texas and took the cake for being the best dressed mad hatter.
My life long friend Kris and her husband came from Arizona for my celebration, and Kris gave a knee slapping, belly laughing presentation of our unbelievable childhood.
Our beautiful daughters plan and executed the entire party and included a photo booth of frames for us to capture our family and friends. Starting at the top left and going right are granddaughters Amanda and Monica, Donna and Tom, Elijah and grandma, Myk our son, grandson Marc and his fiance, Amanda. Grandsons Nick and Jon, friends from our Hughson Church, Karen and Tim, Don's SIL and her hubby Ted, and Nephew Rick, Carol and Aunt Gloria.
Tom and Juliana, from Santa Barbara ~ college friends. My cousin Danette and Mitch. Danielle, Jon and Levi (from Hughson), John and Liz from Lompoc . Amanda, Tom, daughter Julie, and Elijah.
The beautiful garden setting for the Mad Hatter Tea Party, the Dessert Table and Julie having some fun! HaHa.
Our girls just made this so fun. It was in a Whimsical Garden setting and we had about 50 guests.
We had the party from 11 am to 3 pm which gave everyone a chance to mingle and visit.
Kris, Ted, Cliff and Linda
Tom, Juliana, Lou, Diane and Phil
My dearest without my knowledge gave a moving and loving tribute to me using every color of rose to tell about my life and how each color of rose shared a bit about who I am as a woman, wife, mother, sister, grandmother...it was so beautiful.
I hope I haven't overloaded you! I enjoyed my blog break and spending time with my sister and friends and wanted you all to be a part of my party via the blog.
"75" is the best year of my life!!!
