A Bookish Birthday Bash!

 My parents wanted to have the whole family over for a birthday celebration dinner for Levi and if you know Glamma you know that there is no throwing together a quick meal for a simple gathering - she is going to pull out all the stops and prepare a lavish feast to show the guest of honor just how special they are. It's the Glamma way! 

And this day was no different.

Levi is an avid reader and one of his favorite pastimes is falling deep into the pages of a good book. In the car, on the couch, in his room - the child is always reading. We often have to make him put his books away in the car so that we can enjoy his company. It doesn't matter if we're driving ten minutes to the grocery store or 12 hours on a road trip, as soon as that seatbelt is buckled his nose is hidden behind the front and back cover of his latest read.

Glamma played up on this love of Levi's and created the most spectacular table scape of BOOKS!

When I say she outdid herself I mean it. She took each place setting and created a miniature living room representing each and every guest! She ordered miniatures of each of our favorite books and interests and even had tiny records of our favorite bands scattered about our individual living rooms. I cannot even explain to you how fantastic it was!

I mean... COME ON! Literally the most adorable thing I have ever seen in my life. My living room is pictured above and it just so perfectly captured everything I love. Each setting was so personal and perfect for each person - the time and detail that went into all of it did not go unnoticed!

Each place setting was like walking into a completely different home! How dreamy would it be if there were actual living rooms that looked like these?

The rugs, the lamps, the coffee maker and coffee cups? I can't! 

Glamma's place setting was filled with her absolute favorite thing in life - the Bible and Bible study materials. So fitting and so cute!

Not only were the place settings filled with detail, but so was the entire table and even the chairs. The backdrop looked as if we were sitting in a library, there were new books scattered all over the table for Levi to take home as part of his gift, and each chair had a pillow that looked like a library card!

I was speechless when I walked in and saw the spread. We all were. It was just so perfect and FUN. All of the kids (and us adults!) absolutely loved it. Glamma has a way of making you feel like a kid again.

Oh, and the "Pixar Lamps" were such a cute touch! Perfect for Levi.

Not only did she do all of this amazing decor, but she also cooked up Levi's favorite meal of all time - her homemade fried chicken with all of the fixings. Absolutely divine.

I don't know how she does it, but all of this is just what makes up who Glamma is. She is the most creative and giving human being, and we as her family love and appreciate everything she does for each and every one of us to make us feel like we are the most special person in the world.

It was certainly a birthday to remember.

  3. Honestly?!!! I cannot even imagine the fun she had collecting all these gems. I love that you share her ideas for the rest of us to enjoy. I agree with the comment Martha has nothing on your mom.

    Just a question - any suggestions for a women's Bible study? It seems like we've just done everything, and I'd love to know what she would suggest.

  4. This is the most creative party idea I have ever seen! As a former librarian I am thrilled you have a child who loves reading. What a clever and thoughtful mom you have. I have always enjoyed her tablescapes over the years. She is so inspiring. Thank you for sharing.

  5. I have to say wholeheartedly I believe Oniha is a gifted individual and gentle in his second nature. I have received the most rewarding and spiritual experience whilst conversing with him on the telephone. I heard and saw an angel in my mind-eye. It was so overwhelming. I knew at that moment finally my difficulties were over. He deserves recognition for his power and talents as a beautiful individual who brings spirit close to those in need. I have been touched deeply,nothing has come as close to me before. I am in total awe and have a great deal of respect. Thank you Dr Oniha for reuniting me with my estranged husband. Anyone who needs relationship help should contact this man and he will help you.
