Sometimes it just isn’t practical to have a party at your house. It’s just easier and more convenient for everyone to meet at a restaurant. That’s what happened when my friend Karen was moving. We met at a local restaurant, but my friend Susann made it so much nicer by bringing flowers in a bud vase for the table. We took away the generic flowers that were on every table, and replaced them with these. Bonus- when lunch was over the guest of honor took them home. It was a great, inexpensive gesture that made our party seem more special!
