Twilight Tuesday ~ Or ~ A Funeral for Twi-Whore

We’ve I’ve been planning Twi-Whore’s 30th birthday party since, near the end of October. On Saturday, everything finally came to fruition.

We had decided on a funeral theme, and mourn the loss of her 20’s. We had tombstones and skull gates, a silhouette graveyard cake, and lots of black paper lanterns to help with the theme. I hung a wall full of black and white streamers and made a ton of tissue paper flowers and balls to make it pretty.

There were goodie bags filled with tea and Hershey Kisses, and photos of the birthday girl scattered about the room. Food included what I call “shitty funeral food”, like tuna and egg salad sandwiches, and veggie trays. We also had some hors d’oeuvres, some dips, a baked brie, and veggie wraps, as well as the best lemonade ever.

We had about 10-13 people attend, and two eulogies were delivered. The first, written by my husband, was given by his father, Twi-Whore’s uncle. It was super funny and said a lot about our relationship. The second, was given by her friend, and was about “The 20 Something Twi-Whore.” It was great to hear about her, outside of what I know, and family situations.

We visited and ate and drank, well into the night. It was a fantastic evening, with lots of laughs, and good conversation. Here’s to you Twi-Whore, I hope you had a fabulous time and a wonderful birthday!
