A Wonderful Celebration!
Amidst a hodgepodge of chairs, and 93 degree heat our "Oma" Veronika celebrated her 75th birthday barbecue in our garden.
A splendid time was had by all, and all our hard work paid off as it couldn't have gone more smoothly.I found the most wonderful roses to decorate the table which held up remarkably well despite the heat.With some help and a bit of maneuvering we managed to arrange a bunch of tables to seat fourteen, so no one was doing the balancing act of trying to hold food and a drink on their lap..We had two different kinds of desserts, this one is a yummy strawberry torte.
As with our previous barbecues we are always guaranteed to have at least one little uninvited guest...this little frog was quit content to sit on the sleeve of my blouse.
This was probably one of the most pleasant celebrations that we have had at our home, I think in part because we all chipped in with the setting up and cleaning up, it is very true...many hands do make light work!
So now I have to play catch up again, apologizes to everyone if they are waiting for an email response from me, I will get to it very shortly, I promise.
