Hello sweet friends!
Last Wednesday we hosted a family dinner party to celebrate our 40th. Anniversary, which was held in Las Vegas Nevada, back in Feb. 25, 1975.
We had fourteen siblings for dinner, with a bonus that Alejandro's sister Meredith and her husband Fred, from the USA were here visiting the family.
She had come in the early sixties as an exchange student and she even married their cousin.
She than became a widow and it's now married to Fred Fulton from the US for more than 30 years. She remained very close to the Crespo family as her own, the feeling is from both sides.
Meredith has a daughter from their cousin who made her a grandma and two sons with Fred, and one is married now too.
She also serenaded us playing the guitar and singing romantic songs in Spanish. Of course, she speaks perfect Spanish...she's beautiful and very talented!
All my Bils and Sils are also beautiful and talented in different areas.
Ok, here it is with a little tour of how I fixed the house for the occasion.
|Am I getting boring with my transferware dinner tables all the time?! Actually, Mr. Living is the one to blame, as he only wants me to serve in them, lol..|
|Of course, I had to set the round table for six guests with the Onion dishes to match the blue and white theme.|
|Love these gorgeous roses from my Bil's Professional Farm. He sent us as a gift a few bunches.|
|Little roses in yellow here. The buffet is set for tea or coffee after dinner.|
|Look how beautiful the blue hydrangeas are!|
|All set for after dinner tea or coffee.|
|More lovely roses from my Bil.|
|The coffee table with gorgeous roses too.|
|A view from the living room all the way to the family room which is close enough to sit more guests when we need to.|
|My dear Sil's, plus Meredith who is 'another' Sil for the family.|
|Most of my Bil's and my own brother Joe with the pale blue sweater.|
|Dear Meredith serenading us and me next to her enjoying it. |
Alejandro was busy taking pics to hold on to the moment, lol!
|We received this gorgeous set of Oriental dishes as a gift for our '40th. Anniversary' from all our siblings...(I've been guessing up to now, how did they ever imagined I would like, errr...dishes?)|
|Isn't the teapot and covered mugs just too darn petty??|
Thanks to all our bros and sis, we loved each piece!
Thanking you sweet and kind friends for visiting, you always make my day.
Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
