Doug's 50th Birthday Party

Welcome my blogger friends to a huge surprise for me.  My sister not only got the pictures from Doug's 50th birthday developed in the same year as his birthday but in the same decade!  I am in shock and of course I had to share them with you!  We had the party at my Mom's home.  This is Doug and my sister's husband.
Does this cake qualify for Cake Wrecks?  It is creepy to me.  Those are supposed to be
balloons.
We set it up buffet style with chairs and trays throughout.
Here is Doug getting ready to gobble up.  Lots of food fun and friends.  Thought I would share some candid shots from the evening.
And this is my wonderful family, sister, step daughter, grandson, hubby and beautiful Mom
My computer is still slow as can be.  I sure am missing visiting everyone's blogs and can't wait to get this corrected.  I still love your comments.

  6. Happy belated birthday to you Doug! I think this room will be a beautiful setting for you luncheon. It was so nice to speak with you yesterday and I'm sending the cards as I promised. I'm also on the lookout for the recipe I mentioned to you.

  10. The way I look at it, NOTHING is bad as long as it's chocolate. Actually, I LOVE the little squiggly colors all around it - like streamers. One of my favorite quotes applies here ... "when life gets sticky...dip it in chocolate!" Everything about the day looks wonderful.

    Really enjoy your blog. Would love to count you a friend & have you follow me as well as I will you.

    Blessings ~ Merana
