The Weather Gods Had No Mercy, But We Had A Great Time

Planning an outside event is always a risky thing. Especially if you live at the coast where winds can pick up and/or blow out of the wrong direction. Instead of 20C (68F) we got only around 15C (59F) and the wind was blowing like crazy.  So plan B was set into action. Our round glass table from the porch was hauled through the entry door and placed in a corner of our dining room.  Several attempts later to find the best arrangement, we had a solution for accommodating 12 chairs.

And yes, we had to haul 2 extra chairs down the stairs, including a folding chair to seat everyone. We filled our dining room to the brim.  Bea had prepared delicious party snacks and then the cake was rolled in. It was all very yummy and I dare say that we had a great time together.

Lots of laughter and storytelling around the table.

I was floored when one of guests had written a birthday greeting in Norwegian. (Thank you, Google) It was past supper time when the first guests started leaving.  An hour later everything was back to normal. Settling for a quiet evening Bea and I were still nibbling on the leftovers.
