The Party Setting

Good Morning Friends, Hubby and I have been waiting to get the photos from our surprise birthday party and they finally arrived. So without further adieu, here is the first group; the party setting. What is normally a huge shop, able to hold a bus, was transformed into the perfect party setting with twinkling lights, candles, tables, pictures from our lives,gourmet food and most importantly friends. The next few days will show more but here is a taste of the best party ever.

Our little Miss F greeting guests.

Photos from our lives hung around the room-the one in the hat was taken at Disneyland when I was 19(my hair was down to my hips at that point, so often I wore it in braids).  The middle picture was of hubby and I in Hawaii in 1975.
Our loved ones, from California to Colorado.
The ceilings in the shop are approximately 20', maybe a bit higher, but still a lot of work to get the lights up there. Friends kept asking if they would rent it out and cater wedding receptions; a possibility in the future?
One sil made these very cool chalk boards and they were also around the room.  This was truly a highlight of our lives and one that was so incredibly fun.

Several friends asked whether Hunter got into more trouble yesterday and he was pretty good; he did get a morning walk and also a car ride.  He does so well when we are gone-of course that is due to the crate. I also had a great time with my blogging buddies but decided not to take any pics this visit.  
Have a joy filled day!
Noreen & Hunter


  1. That sure looks like a great party. Very pretty. Nose poke to Hunter.

  2. Wonderful pictures, Noreen!!
    I love it! Oh, and weren't you a couple of cute kids in those pictures hanging on the walls ;-)

    This looks like the country setting you've longed to see! How sweet to have your friends & family to celebrate with you both! Cute chalkboard, too. Did you get to take it home with you?

    Happy Birthday to your hubby & celebrating with both for all the years together!
    More blessings, sweet friend!

  3. How perfectly perfect, in every way!!!!

  8. Hi Noreen! Nice to see you! May I say that THAT was a beautiful party and you have such a wonderful family to put that on for you! They did a fabulous job AND you should rent out your shop for such things! It's lovely! Have a happy summer, Noreen!

  9. Hi Noreen again - I must say I enjoyed the northern part of California, too. At least the Napa region. That's about as far north as we got on our trip. Southern Cali is very crowded, but we did enjoy the beauty there and the ocean. But we both much prefered the northern areas, the wine country, etc. It was beautiful!

  10. Making such lovely memories! Summer Blessings!

  11. Wow! You guys surely know how to party.

  12. Noreen- What wonderful pictures. It looks like you had a wonderful party and you two made a very very cute couple. How sweet that everyone came from far and near to be part of your special day- xo Diana

  13. What a beautiful setting for "the best party ever"! How blessed you are.

    Glad to hear that Hunter was a good boy yesterday.

  14. Dear Noreen,
    I think I've missed something...are congratulations in order? It sounds like an anniversary of some sort.
    What a wonderful party, setting. I just love those hanging pictures - especially of the 'plaits' hanging down your shoulders.
