We had a chance to honour one our friends Jill. She is one of the first to turn 40 this year. We thought we would start the celebrating with a surprise party.
Just a little background on Jill. She is a our friend that keeps us all together. She is always communicating with each of us and manages to keep us all in the loop. She is kind, generous, always up beat and so much more. So this was our opportunity to celebrate her.
We had planned an italian themed meal as Jill enjoys chicken and pasta. Jodi let us have the party at her home. All the girls were kind enough to help put the party together. Which included a chocolate fountain, champagne flutes filled with prosecco and strawberries for a toast. Homemade deep dish lasagne,pasta, chicken parmigiana. A selection of meats, cheeses and olives. Dessert was an ice cream cake decorated with a bottle of La Scala(drink or choice when Jill was younger. LOL)
We had an enjoyable evening reminiscing and celebrating.
Hope you had a wonderful evening Jill! Happy Birthday.
Darren was also kind enough to put together a video attached below.
