Surprise Party. This was a surprise 40th birthday. The person was told that they were going to a beach music festival. Although she may have gotten a little suspicious the last mile or so, they did an excellent job in pulling off the surprise. They had cocktails initially, then ate a great meal with dessert from Artist’s Way, then had a live band on stage for the remainder of the night. Tables and chairs were placed both inside and outside. Aside from the band, they played music over the house system via wi-fi and a cell phone. A fire in the firepit and corn hole were available out on the patio.
