Ladies Luncheon: Celebrating Sarah's 30th Birthday

Courtesy of BA Photography

This is Sarah. She is one of my dearest, sweetest, and most special friends. Isn't she beautiful? Uh yeah! But the best part of Sarah is that this beauty goes down to the depths of her soul. She is an amazing woman that loves deeply and passionately. She cares about others more than herself. She encourages you to be creative, to go the extra mile for others and to be a better wife. And Sarah's love for the Lord is contagious. 

This year was significant because it was her 30th birthday! And as with any birthday milestone come special party plans.  So when her husband asked my sister, Kimi and I (aka "RoMaglio"~ where your dreams become a reality) to help with the party planning we jumped at the opportunity. Yes, we have created a party planning business for ourselves. No, it is not real. Well, unless you want it to be...

Anyways with a little "creative communication", we set the bait. We enlisted Sarah to help us host our sister's bridal shower. Like I said, Sarah is so willing to help others that she didn't think twice and agreed to help right away. Our plan was a go! We wanted to recreate the feel of a traditional ladies lunch complete with formal attire, a special menu and fabulous company. Here are the details...

The Location:
Four Season Room in the LoMag Residence

Kimi's home is the perfect party location. Their four seasons room is surrounded by windows, so no matter the time of day, it feels classy. And at the risk of sounding hoity-toity, it looked classy too.

Bright and sunny tulips

The Menu:
Traditional Chicken Salad (my recipe)
Spinach, Strawberry, & Pecan Salad
Corn Chowder (Mamasita's recipe)

Cheese Tortellini

Keurig coffee and Cadbury mini eggs

Personal Fruit Pizzas

Mini Cupcakes
The Favors:
Soy Candles

The Guests:
The lovely ladies and the Guest of Honor
Not only did we have fun putting the details together, but in the end, Miss Sarah was surprised and speechless. Success!

Happy 30th Birthday, Sarah! You are loved and we wish you many more wonderful years ahead. I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for your life.

Love & Hugs!
