Girls just wanna have fun!


Jane's 50th Birthday Celebration!!!


This last Saturday my mother threw a surprise party for my amazing and beautiful Aunt Jane at the wonderful Cafe de Paris in downtown Boise. It was a delightful afternoon with 21 lovely ladies celebrating this very special milestone!





Jane is the type of person who doesn't like a lot of fuss, so it was especially fun to have her as the center of attention for a few special hours. Delicious french food, sweet tasting wine and the chattering of gabby girls, was only outdone by the sincere and heartwarming toasts offered up for the guest of honor.




I was busy snappy pictures during the toasts and didn't get a chance to offer one myself. So Jane, here is my toast to you....

"Jane, you are truly amazing, talented and most of all so giving of yourself. You use your talents and creativity to brighten the lives of those around you and you always seem to go above and beyond. You are there for others especially when they need you the most, and you inspire me in all that you do. You have the most amazing laugh that can fill a room and such a beautiful smile. You are also the only woman I know who can paint a friends house, sew a blanket, tear down a fence and rebuild it and still find the energy to sing Karaoke until the wee hours of the night. You make 50 look dang good!!! May this year bring you as much joy as you bring to all of us. Happy Birthday!"

I also want to give a quick shout-out to my ever so talented Grandma Barbara for making these beautiful sunflower favors. Since my aunt Jane loves to garden, my mom thought that these Sunflower centerpieces would make the perfect accent for the tables and would be be a great gift for the guests. Each little flower pot was filled with edible sunflowers!! What a hit!



My mom is the ultimate party planner!! She thought of everything!!! It was truly a wonderful party and a beautiful tribute to my aunt! Thanks mom for such a fun day!
