Welcome 2020! (a little late)

We rang in the new year with family and friends at our Roaring 20’s, Gatsby -themed party.

“A little party never killed nobody…”

With work and the kids and my recent surgeries, big parties have been a rarity at our house for the last few years. But when we had to postpone a family vacation we’d planned for the winter break, I decided a blowout NYE party was the best consolation prize. And it turned out to be even better than that!

Closed for Violations of the Prohibition Act… (or our HOA Covenants).

I don’t know about you, but every once in a while I just love to throw a big shindig and bring together a motley group of fabulous people. And being able to nerd out with a theme makes the fun all the sweeter. Personally, I’d be perfectly happy if the 2020s turned out to be a second Jazz Age…

Mafiosa Meatballs, Bugsy Siegel’s Jewish Mafia Pastrami Melts, Hot Jazz Spicy Spinach Dip…. We’re always all about the puns!

These pictures don’t represent everyone who joined us to ring in the new year, but it gives you an idea of what a fun night we had.

I like large parties, they're so intimate. At small parties there isn't any privacy. 
- F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Happy New Year! Hope your 2020 is off to an equally celebratory start!
