Our friend’s daughter LT turned 18 today and she invited us to celebrate the special occasion with her family, friends, and the Wesley Fellowship. It’s a pool party and it was a great evening for a pool party today. My darling daughter was happy to see her godparents. But her most favorite thing of the day was swimming in the pool. Dear husband bought a kid’s swim vest for DD the other day. Gladly she wore it in the pool because she didn’t like wearing one when we were at her cousin’s swimming party last summer.
The party was held in a neighborhood’s clubhouse where one of our friends live. Holding a party in clubhouses is also a good idea. Kitchen and other room amenities in the clubhouse can be used in gatherings. But of course, you have to rent it. The number of guest are limited since the place is not that very big.
The birthday celebrant’s immediate families on both side of parents came all the way from Chicago to join and celebrate her 18th birthday. It was really nice because her cousins were there, too. They had a great time playing games and swimming in the pool. There were plenty of food and drinks for everyone. There was also a photo booth that LT’s brother had set-up for fun. But we forgot to get our pictures taken. I missed it. 🙂
Anyway, what I loved most at the party was the celebrant’s 18 roses. They were lovely! In connection to her going to college this fall, she picked the orange color roses to be her flowers for this occasion. It is because she is going to University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) and orange is the university’s primary color.
