The Essentials

Today is Stearns' birthday, and we had a little celebration at Cranford to mark the occasion. My essentials for a perfect party:  fringey streamers // chocolate almond orange cake // a bottle of red wine for each person // some cava, too // falafelling // awkward toasts // chair dancing // watermelon radishes // having so much for we forgot about poetry and singing // not a bowl of hummus, a round of cheap brie, or a bag of chips in sight // a charming, enthusiastic, sincere, funny, sporting, generous, intelligent, gracious, witty, truly and genuinely lovely gal to celebrate.
