Thirsty Thursday: Sunbeam Cocktail and W’s Birthday

Today is National Pink Day!  Are you wearing yours?  With this week’s cocktail and W’s party photos (I apologize ahead of time for the number of photos), you’ll be seeing some pink!  And if you want to see even more pink…and green, link up with Trish!

We had a great time at W’s party on Saturday, the weather was beautiful all day (as you’ll see from the start), and then about ten minutes into the party, all of our decorations from outside had to be pulled down, and hurried inside.  A severe thunderstorm hit, right as the party started, the power flickered on and off twice, but thankfully we didn’t lose it!  We definitely made the most of it, but our poor house was jam-packed with everyone, and the hubs ended up grilling burgers out in the rain.  After seeing the photos, you’ll see how crammed tight it was.  Needless to say, the hubs and I agreed for the next birthday, we’re celebrating it away…no clean-up, less organization, no worries about the weather, and we get to come home to a clean house..and maybe this delicious cocktail, too.  Sounds lovely!

The happy birthday girl!
So determined to hold up three fingers.

The lovely hydrangeas from my mom’s yard (for the tabletop centerpieces in the yard)…
that wouldn’t be, because of the storm.

Plastic-ware, wrapped and ready

Couldn’t forget a little Lilly…here…
…and here!

The happy sisters, enjoying the pre-party preparations.

The cake was by Edible Art (where my wedding cake was from), it’s DIVINE!
The flavor was even almond – just couldn’t resist. W wanted a Barbie cake,
so I found the little Barbie at Target, and added it.

I think she was pretty pleased.

Amid the craziness…

Almost all of the sisters…
The youngest is in Barcelona, arriving home tomorrow (after a month’s visit – lucky girl!)
During the chaos, this sweet little one (three weeks old), slept through the entire party!
The spread, moved indoors…we managed.

Playing with her friends.

Worn out!
Hope y’all have a great Thursday!


Here’s the order of the sisters, from yesterday’s photo.  Congrats to those of you who guessed it correctly!  NO congrats to those of you who know us, and already know the order.  Just kidding!
