Best Birthday ever!!! Some how this post got posted after Joshua's Birthday post, so we are out of order. Oh well, the day started out with a very cute Bee greeting poster using my favorite colors and then onto my breakfast of choice on the special red plate! I found a floral arrangement from the yard on the bar (I would say garden but that's a stretch) and 2 cute boxes with 200 year old Roman glass bling from Israel inside (nice). Alan took the day off work to spend it with me, a first (miracles happen)!! Then it was onto shopping downtown, taking grandson Josh shopping to get his Cub Scout uniform for his B-day, dinner at Cheese Cake Factory and then head home to a movie or go to a movie.
But.... my children planned a surprise "BEEDAY" party in the back yard!!
Alan knew all about it and so did little Joshua and no one "spilled the beans" to me about the party.
It was a beautiful garden party filled with BEES!
I love Bees, fake ones that is.
They went crazy-over-the top decorating! Abby made a marvelous-wonderful Beehive cake delight.
Cutest little Bee cookies by Liz and Beehive cake...
And don't get me started on the Beehive Pinata filled with delights for the kiddies.
I have no idea how they kept the kids away from the goodies while they waited for me to show up! I decided that we needed to stop at Costco on the way home and so the kids waited and waited. One cannot be rushed in Costco!
Oh the Bees, the Bee glow sticks, the Bee horn blowers, the Bee chocolate bars, the Bee cups, the Bee water bottles, the Bee cake, the Bee cookies, the Beehive, the flowers, the black and white (my favorite colors) mixed with yellow, the little homemade bees, the festive Mickey birthday hat (out of place with the Bee theme but, we work Mickey into just about everything we do!)
The word that comes to mind is "Fairy like" but I guess I would need to say "Bee like", but it did feel fairy like!!
The wind blowing the balloons and ribbons, the kids blowing their horns... magic.
Party games and everything!! Snicker bars in the pinata that got wet because I knocked it into the stream and got everything wet so we couldn't eat the bars. Throwing away snicker bars is just wrong!!
It was a wonderful shock-surprise of which I had no clue. I must be losing my edge as Gladice Gravits, the snoop . It was a very hot day to be hauling tables and setting up the Magical Beeville out side! It was a wonderful way to end a great day and with a party like this, who cares if I'm a year older! Best Birthday Ever - thank you, thank you for the great party!!
