This past weekend we had a party for David's big 4-0 birthday. We were surrounded by friends and family for a cozy outdoor picnic. I didn't want to do the traditional "tacky" black over the hill stuff, so I stuck with a black and white theme. We made a circle of torches and strung lights between them with the picnic blankets enclosed inside. Everyone filled their basket carrier with my dad's Boston butt bbq, potato salad, slaw, chips and a roll. David had a great birthday, simple and laid-back!
