Our Steamy Birthdays
Jason and I have birthdays relatively close to one another. Usually, he plans a birthday party for me and I organize a party for him. Juggling so many gatherings gets a bit cumbersome. So this year we decided to ditch cumbersomeness for awkwardness and arrange a joint birthday fandango for ourselves with a pirates and steampunks theme.
Since Jason and I are vintage dancing enthusiast, we opted to make the entertainment at our bash match the motif. We had our dance instructor teach the sweetest moves from the 1700s and 1800s to our guests. Although these steps were new to most attendees, our friends learned quickly. We had a few spills but they were all softened by laughter. Nicely done you scurvy blaggards!
The grub at our gig was much better than tack and jerky. We provided quiches, scones and tarts from Elizabeth’s English Bakery. Also, my friend Robyn made the most amazing cake for the affair. It actually vented steam.
It was a bang-up evening! Many thanks to the seadogs and odd sticks that joined us for this night of nautical, mechanical and edible delights.
