    Hearing how delicious the food was and how much everyone enjoyed the party. And the decor got a lot of comments!

  • Most Touching Moment

    When a beautiful Senior lady won money in a game and said she was going to buy a pair of jeans! And when most of the ladies said it was our best party yet.

  • Decor

    I clipped branches, spray painted them red and used them as centerpieces for the long banquet tables. I clipped two snow birds to each centerpiece and used cedar & holly springs. It was a cheap, yet beautiful effect! I received so many compliments on the centerpieces.
