The best party I attended in 2010 was one I organized for my husband’s 50th birthday. We kept it small so we could do a sit-down dinner (he hates buffets). Our guests included his family, friends from Texas and Kansas City, and my relatives who live in the Kansas City area. It was small — around 20 people — but big enough to provide a variety of guests and allow folks to connect with old and new friends. Bringing together a group of people from a variety of life stages seemed an appropriate way to celebrate half a century of life. And since many folks came from far away, they stayed for a few days, so I got to spend a long weekend hanging out with some of my favorite people (many of whom I don’t see nearly often enough). Besides, how can you not love a party that produces a picture like this?
The food was a mix of Turkish salads (cooked by the birthday boy as I am just hopeless). We had wine and champagne to drink and a lovely cake to end with. Below are more pics. As you can see, it was a great night.
Note: This is my ninth post for #reverb10, an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next. Each day has a prompt. Today’s prompt is: “Party Prompt: Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans.”
