Did you know Alana is turning 40 next week? Well she is but if she asked the only appropriate answer is, “I can’t believe you’re a day over thirty!”
It’s a Surprise!
Eric has asked for my help in coordinating a surprise party for next Friday after they return from Washington DC. The key word here is surprise!
- When – Friday Feb. 27th, roughly at 5:00 PM. This means we’re there and set up in their house for when they get back AT 5:00.
- What – Surprise party! I’ll provide decorations, wine, beer, ice, cups, plates, forks, knives and a birthday cake. It would be great if everybody could bring a dish to share. Doesn’t have to be fancy!
- I wouldn’t call this a “theme party” per se but I’m going to do my best to decorate with a vaguely French theme due to Alana’s love of France. I will have a backdrop so we can take pictures in front of the Eiffel Tower. I will also have optional stick-on mustaches. In my experience the French are no more likely to have a mustache than anybody else but for some reason the idea of pretending to be French while wearing a fake mustache makes me laugh so I’m going with it!
- If you haven’t been to their house before it’s at 1235 Main St, Fairfax VT. To get to the church (where hopefully we’ll find ample parking) take the first right PAST their house and then make an immediate right into the church parking lot. You’ll want to walk to their house via the road as the meadow has 1.5+ feet of snow.
I’m still waiting to hear back from Eric but I believe (?) we’ll be parking at the church behind their house and then sneaking in the front door (there is too much snow to sludge through the meadow).
Also – no presents! Seriously – your presence and a dish to share is more than sufficient! Cards and hugs are welcome!
If you have any questions feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or leave a comment below so other party guests can see too!
