We had a wonderful day today with Family to celebrate Mom Markow Birthday Party. Of course I loved decorating the house all up Italian Style. Of course we are not Italian but her favorite meal is Spaghetti so why not. It didn’t matter to me. I had so much fun.
When you walked into Markow Village you were greeted with the Streets of Italy and all the delicious food. We all chipped in and made a wonderful meal of:
Spaghetti regular and glueten free
Meatballs regular and glueten free
Hot Italian sausage and Mild Italian sausage
Chicken Alfredo Carbona
Salad with what else than Italian Dressing
There were bread sticks on all the tables in baskets with homemade dipping sauce which had a nice spice to them.
All the tables where decorated with rose flower rings made at home and by me (of course). Thanks to my dad for letting me borrow all of his wine glasses to make the wine glass centerpieces with artificial grapes and battery operated candles in side them. The string of lights along the ceiling really gave it a restaurant feel. And who could forget the wonderful sounds of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin in the background playing their wonderful songs.
Mom Markow, Uncle John and Aunt Terry had reserved seating so they could see everyone in the whole room. I think they really enjoyed their own seats cause its not always easy to find your own seats around here.
And here is the big hit of the day. The Italian Soda Bar. Everyone enjoyed that and very delicious.
1. Fill cup with ice.
2. Add Torani flavored syrup or your chosing. 3 to 4 pumps.
3. Add Sparkling water
4. Top with Whipped Cream
5. Add paper straw
I do believe that everyone enjoyed number 6 the best. I also have a funny feeling that they will be wanting this again at another party.
Almost every party I do a gift basket with guess the amount in the jar. My sister-in-law Penel won the basket this time. She got the closest to the number of Rotini noodles in the jar. There was 375 and she guessed 367. Way to go Penel.
Well hope everyone has enjoyed the pictures and the fun we had.
