RED Party!

On Saturday, I had my birthday party and the theme was RED! It started with the idea of Red Velvet Cupcakes. Then I thought of spaghetti, plus I could wear my beautiful red shoes (refer back to April 14, 2007 post titled The Shoes for pictures of the beautiful shoes). Along with that we had fruit salad with strawberries, raspberries and peaches (the skin is red) and blueberries (because they are so delicious). Also, a red green salad - red leaf lettuce, raspberries, dried cranberries, dried cherries, raspberry vinegarette and feta. We had to have garlic bread even though it wasn't red, because you have to have garlic bread with spaghetti.

Here is the whole table of everyone. James messily eating a cupcake.
The cupcakes and candles!
Our friends Mardee, Spencer and their daughter Cadence decked out in red. Spencer was actually wearing long johns with the trap door in the be-hind, but he was wearing red soccer shorts over to keep it G-rated. So pretty much it was a lot of fun with yummy food. It was so wonderful having a birthday party. It was my first one in YEARS! Happy Birthday to ME!

By the way, when I walked outside and saw the setup I thought it looked really cool. Great idea with the red theme!
