Surprise 50th Dinner Party

On Sunday, we and by we I mean 12 of our closest friends and family surprised the Hubs with a 50th Birthday dinner.  My FIL was able to keep him occupied all afternoon while I cooked and fine tuned the house for the event.  
It is still such a shock that I actually was able to pull off a surprise for him. It should be noted that I am never rarely able to keep a secret, but this time I was successful.

This is the dining room table before everyone arrived.  On Friday, I popped into Pier 1 and found the most divine chargers.  Sadly they only had two but I decided I could make that work!  I used navy place mats I picked up at Wal-Mart some time ago and the table runner was a steal at Target.

  The potato dish that I made (Bestie B's recipe) was without a doubt the biggest hit of the night.

The evening wouldn't have been complete without a few gifts for the new "old" person, think fiber pills and the like.

  1. I'm so glad that your hubby's party was success! I know you were working hard to make it happen. I love the signs identifying what each dish is. Did you make those?
