In our family we believe birthdays should be celebrated, honored and reveled in. None of this, well birthdays are only for children, I don't need a cake, I don't need a fuss. Well, I think everyone should have a fuss on their own special day. We get one day that is all our own, and it should not be ignored. My oldest turned 35 on the 11th and this time the party planner was her sister. She came up with the perfect theme (yes, we do themes). It was to be a Hamilton Birthday!
The Broadway hit has taken our family by storm (what an incredible show it is!) and both my daughters know the soundtrack backwards and forwards. Well, she did a great job incorporating all the aspects of the show in my dining room. We had $10 bills hanging from the ceiling, little tin soldiers, a Betsy Ross flag and Samuel Adams beer. When my oldest daughter arrived, we all sang the song Here Comes the General (with special lyrics written for her). And my youngest was dressed as Alexander Hamilton!!
We had a duel in the street (yes, those are Nerf guns), there was a trivia game regarding the show and we enjoyed the most luscious specialty cake made with beer and Irish cream! It was incredible!
It was a fun time, enjoyed by all. And no one got killed, just had a lot of laughs!
We sang, and made wishes and we didn't want the night to end. It is always such a treat to all be together.
Happy Birthday to my girl! You deserve the best! Always, Kit
