As my father is turning 50 on the 21st of December, my stepmother decided to have a nice brunch the weekend before. Another thing why this day is so special is that my father has completed the first half of his life.
We rented a really lovely café, where they were preparing a nice buffet with every food your heart desires – starting with scrambled eggs, cereal, NUTELLA, and lots of other delicious dishes. The name of it was Rosenhain Café, which I’ll link here.
After the arrival of all 50 guests, my brothers and I nearly ran to the buffet because we were starving – our day started pretty early and with all the stress we forgot to eat. Can you believe WE FORGOT TO EAT! – How is this even possible?
I met so many people I haven’t seen in such a long time and caught up on all their gossip and what is going on in their lives. Some of them I couldn’t even remember because it had been such a long time.
Do you know this situation where some acquaintances start talking like: Oh I know you since you were a little baby. You got so adult. Do you remember me, we first met… – I hope I am not the only one that knows this kind of situation at family parties.
After everyone was satisfied and living in food heaven, the embarrassing part for my father started. At first he had to open all his presents and as his friends are still childish it was just hilarious for the guests, especially for them with the little kids which were asking “Mommy what’s that?” of course the answer always was „nothing nothing“
My boyfriend, my brothers and I bought him a nice shirt from his favourite football team in Graz with all the important signatures.
After that the slideshow started in which all cute, lovely and embarrassing pictures of my father were shown, unfortunately some embarrassing pics of me were also shown. Some times my father just wanted that the ground opened up and swallowed him.
In the end he was so touched that he almost started crying. Afterwards he told me that he really had to fight the tears but he is a man and men don’t cry.
The party was so lovely and I was smiling the whole day as I haven’t seen my father so happy in such a long time Also I really wish that one day I will also have so many amazing friends like he has. They are together since college and are still best friends today and definitely forever.
Also lots of guests came to our house afterwards, which we didn’t expect at all. The party ended at nine pm and started at 11 am. That’s how you know that the party was successful.
I really want to show you my look for that day because I really liked it. It was very chic and classy but also sporty and grungy. To compare it was a nice edgy look which I really love as you may already know. The best part of the look is the nice fury jacket which is just so soft and looks very high end but definitely isn’t.
