A Blue Ribbon 50th Birthday Party

On June 14, Martha celebrated the big 50 country style and it was a hoedown, to say the least. From bull riding to line dancing, the party tended guests to a perfect kickoff to summer. The guests arrived on a beautiful sunny day at the Giracci Vineyards Oak Tree Courts where they were greeted with Canyon Catering appetizers of avocado toasts, chicken in a waffle cone, sliders, and drinks. The ambience was lit with lights on the oak trees, live country music, and hay bales scattered around the court. Guests enjoyed the light refreshments while watching a western horse freestyle show and if they wanted to take a hayride, a horse was waiting outside the court.

Guests then made their way down to the reception at the Barn where a table filled with Martha’s photographs through the years and a photo booth next to it for guests to take pictures home as well as put in the memory album.

Dinner was buffet style, provided by Canyon Catering. Enjoyed by everyone was mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, chicken and brisket. The deliciousness didn’t stop there though. As line dancing proceeded, the taco bar came out and of course we can’t forget about dessert. Nitrogen ice cream and a chocolate fountain followed the birthday cake and singing to Martha. Open dancing continued till the end of the night and guests were throwing down to “Old Town Road”. It’s safe to say they rode till they “couldn’t no more”.
