Tropical Birthday Bash

Beach sand, shells and votives light up the room
I've heard that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I didn't believe it until this post published without text!  All I did was answer the telephone, and the next thing on my screen read "You have published successfully."  Let me try it again...this time with a few explanations.


From the blog title, you may have gathered that we had a bit of tropical weather here recently -- in celebratory form.  My hub decided he didn't want to turn 55 alone, so we invited a few of his close pals by to cheer him up!  And they did a great job.  Look how happy he is:
He & Me in Hawaiian garb


Tropical Cupcakes
and a printed bamboo shade as the tablecloth
An embellished palm tree


Paint chips, fancy paper plus my Slice


Create a colorful banner
that reads "Happy Birthday Ron"

The cost for all this creativity:
priceless.


Staying with the tropical/beachy theme, we recently purchased this wood print artwork
for our upcoming 25th wedding anniversary,
to commemorate our engagement on the beach in Malibu, California.
Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart!
