Well Dear Readers, the Casablanca "Jet set" was at it again last weekend! This weekend we threw a surprise birthday party for our dear friend Russ's 54th Birthday!

This Birthday party has been in the works since December! 17 guests in all and many others who wished they could have been there turned out for Russ's  Surprise party!
(The Rice Crispy Cake!)
At game night and gatherings Russ ALWAYS brings Rice Crispy Treats, so we made him a cake out of them. Everyone brougth something to add to the "buffet" and for dinner we had self serve sandwiches!
( Friends Lara and Spencer brought- White Trash Dip &Chips)
(Fresh sliced Veggies for the sandwiches, in pretty Pyrex!)
(Adrian's delicious Pasta Salad.)
Friends gathered in the kitchen den and lounge while the food was being prepared, everyone chatting and having a good time.
(Friend Adrien served hors d'oeuvres of smoked salmon on cucumber slices.)
(Hostess Patricia served "sweet & salty" out of our red Pyrex.)
We put all the food out on the counters and everyone just helped themselfs to the buffet, we let a few records drop and the house was filled with friends and laughter.
(Friends Joseph, Zack, Lara & Spencer in the lounge.)
(Along with friends Seigen, Chloe, Heather Cameron & Tobi in the den!)
Soon everyone gathered and it was time for Russ receive his cake to open his presents.

(Happy Birthday Russ!)
After the presents were received and we waited for the sun to go down to start the Drive-In Movie, we played a few rounds of the question/answer "What If" in the den.
(Oh, lets see- Joe, Chloe, Barbra, John, Jarrod, Laurie, Russ & Janet)
After the sun went down we all moved out to the Drive-In to enjoy a viewing of one of Russ's favorite movies "The Princess Bride". Yet another shining moment in the long history of glittering Casablanca Parties!

Thank you to everyone who came, I feel safe in saying we made Russ's 54th birthday a great one!

You know I can't let this go by without mentioning how much I love the red and yellow decorations! I've had that theme at a couple of my birthdays (for a reason that I'm sure is completely different from why you chose it - GO-RILLAS!)

Anyway, now I'm hungry...
