Flip's little cousin Adri turned 21 and the theme was Las Vegas meets gatsby, meets formal, meets not so formal. The theme had a bit of an identity crisis as far as the guests garb went, but the interior met all expectations!
The birthday girl and I
I wish I had taken more photos of the decor, but there is just something about taking pics with a flash that irks me terribly. And please do excuse my boyfriend who can never pull a straight face on a photo.
The 21st bash was quite a lovely do, as a person from each table got up and gave a little speech honouring Adri. I told Flip that I don't recall people giving speeches at my 21st, and he replied, quite surprised, that even he gave a speech at his own 21st. In context, this is surprising, as Flip is not a public speaker, at all. He might have gotten some Dutch Courage.
There were a few tears, I think Afrikaans people just cry very easily and gets very sentimental at times, ie, almost my whole female side of my family gets teary eyed at baptisms. This time, the wetworks came from Flip's aunt, she was so proud of her little girl all grown up.
Little chubby cheeks here is Flip's niece Andrea. We had such a jol with her, she has so much personality!
Adri, you are a lovely, gorgeous, smart and awesome woman now
and I wish you so many happy years to come!
