A couple of week-ends ago we held Emerald's 18th Birthday.
Now because she didn't want the whole big party thing happening like her brother had where we had over 100 people(insert big sigh of relief here from me ;-) we had to decide on something VERY different to do.
Saloon girl Sally Starr (Emerald)
with Banker Bob (Lane)
Then it just so happened I was having a delicious lunch with my new daughter-in-law at our local Bed,Breakfast & Coffee shop when we saw the blackboard up saying they were holding Murder Mystery Nights.
Well my heart did a little flutter & I just knew this is what we would be doing come the second week in October.
Oh my gosh that's ME!-Henrietta High Stakes(hope you all dig my wig)
with just one of my girls-Sally Starr(dd)
It all worked out great as we were told it was perfect with just a small number 25-35 so this fitted in well with Emerald's wishes of just a small gathering.
Included in the murder mystery night was a 2 course meal.(Fantastic for me no work to do catering)
We had a lovely mix of family, close family friends & only the bestest & closest of Emeralds mates, a great bunch with some travelling 950km's just to join us on her special day.
with a Lady from the east Elizabeth Money(much more dignified than us Saloon girls but I'm still digging the wig)
along with Mitch Maverick.
I was so excited & impressed leading up to the big day that everbody was putting so much effort into dressing up to play their character. All the information was sent to them along with their invite & an informal script straight from the venue. (no fuss or work for me here either)
Playing dress-ups is still so much fun when your older
After wards we all ventured home to have Emeralds Birthday cake with nibbles & a few drinks.
T'was a great night
