Last evening, we had a wonderful party hosted by Clarice (my boss from Joyworks) at her lovely home and garden in Lake Stevens. To say Clarice is a wonderful gardener, is an understatement! And, it spite of our inclement (HOT HOT HOT) weather here in the PNW, her yard looks spectacular!!!!
Jana, her daughter and partner in design, along with our beloved Sandi, created the perfect setting for our coworker Jill's 50th birthday. It was a spread right out of Romantic Homes or Country living!
Now, one thing I have to clarify, before I reveal pictures of the setting is that we say "boss," we say "coworker," but I know that my fellow shopworkers would be the first to tell you that we have a much deeper commitment and friendship than strictly work. Prior to my Joyworks days I worked with a lot of women, in a lot of places. I've never worked with such lovely women!! We are different in many ways, but the mix works well!! No one leaves,,,and if they do, they come back!!
With that in mind,,,,there is nothing like a Joyworks party,,,and Jill, usually orchestrates the gatherings we DO have, so I think we all tried to make it extra special for her 50th,,,,,even if she DOES say "brick brack."
Jill loves animal prints, so we created items with that in mind and added touches of pink. I made her a cake topper and a crown that matched the theme. Here's the scene,,,,next post will be the event itself!!
Since I have found so many lovely blogs at the OWOH event, I decided it would be fun to post some of the spectacular blogs and give you a link to go visit!!!
