Mom's Birthday

My dear Mother is 90 today!
I love this photo of  her and Amanda   on her  85th birthday....
  so  today   we have a  small  soiree'  for her  and     some in town family!
Ive been prepping  all morning.
The   weather is so   wonderful and   the  flowers outside  are  so  luscious  we are celebrating in the sunroom, so  first I had to   spring-ify  the room...   which is  usually decked out in red!
 Since Mother  lives in a nursing facility   she missed the  glory of Easter at home, so   there are  traces of  Easter around to tickle her fancy!

Picking   both mom and dad up   in their  wheel chairs  will be    a  bit  time consuming so   we are very thankful that  Chic-fil-A  is  right on the way home!

The complete menu:
Chicken strips  with   delectable   polynesian and  honey mustard  dips
cole slaw
  I  am  baking  some  
 baked beans  deluxe
macaroni salad
  and  cherry cheesecake 

We  have  invited    our Sil's   parents   to join us..

 A lovely day for  a  special   day of commemoration!.I only wish the kids could be here too!...Aha.. perhaps this will be a skype moment!

  1. Your table looks very pretty! Pink flowers for "Pink Saturday"! It is challenging when our parents get older but definitely worth all the efforts!

  2. How lovely and what a sentimental gift you are giving. Have a wonderful celebration with your folks and Happy 90th to your MOM!
    Blessings, peggy
