Consciously creating a beautiful life.

Party impressions

The party is over!

It was a huge success, nothing got broken, nobody got burned (I had my doubts about doing a fondue with 17 excited kids), and the boys did dance eventually (after all the lights apart from the disco ball got turned off...).

We even managed to clean up, and fit all the pieces of the different fondue sets I borrowed where they belonged.

Due to being kept rather busy filling up kiddies champagne and food, and keeping a discrete eye on things ('shoo shoo mama, shoo shoo' is what Eva said whenever she caught sight of me), I didn't take many pictures.

But here are just some random impressions.

We are blessed with two houses on our property. This one here is where my man works and occasionally sleeps, and then there is the girl's house.

The party was taking place in his studio, which needed a thourough clean-up a bit of work:

Busy setting the table. I got caught up and didn't take any pics once it was finished:

The birthday girls hair-do:

And now I will lie on the couch and read!

Have a lovely, relaxed, beautiful Sunday,
