The month is gone and we welcome June. May was busy as one of my very good friends, Marie, had two milestones. I was fortunate to join her in celebrating both of them.
People say that "sixty is the new forty". Uh, jury is still out on that for me, but Marie's husband Bobby made sure she celebrated in style.
Bobby managed to pull off this surprise, even though 80 people were in on the secret. The purple handbag was a chocolate cake covered in fondant. The shoe is all sugar and was the size of a real one. The detail was amazing. Watering can centerpieces were filled with pretty flowers. The favor (which is not clear), was a cake server in the shape of a shoe.
Marie also retired from the same bank I did. We had a dinner in a local restaurant.
Some flowers from the centerpieces.
So now, parties are over and back to the yard work. Also trying my first attempt at making jam from the first berries of the season, and they were the sweetest I ever tasted.
I'll let you know how it turns out.
PicMonkey is pretty good. Need to play around more with it.
Have a good weekend. I'll be joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays.
