One thing I have to say about my sis in law, Lanier, she is a great entertainer. When she throws a party, she goes all out! On Saturday she was hosting a 70th birthday bash for her long time friend, Carolyn. I was so happy to be included.
Lanier opened the party with a prayer and we were seated around a cozy table. We were served a tapas style lunch. Small servings of pimento cheese fritters, crab cakes, potato soup, shrimp cocktail and chicken strips were among the samplings. After eating, Carolyn read cards that we each had brought to her. She had mailed out large pink and green index cards to each guest. Carolyn asked that we each write down a memory on one card and a favorite Bible verse or Blessing on the other. It was such a blessing to hear words of honor heaped on this special lady.
One of the guests made this cute envelope so that Carolyn could store her special cards in it and then she could take them out and read them when she is feeling down!!
Carolyn received many nice and unique gifts at her party. We ended with cake and pictures.
