Today my daughter and I attended a meeting at a function venue to plan and book her sweet 16 party, for next year. It will be a masked dance with a Venetian baroque look. I've been collecting Venetian baroque looking things from thrift shops and the like. Today we discussed what Italian foods teens might like to eat. We discussed something I like to eat, which is tiramisu. We talked vegan, vegetarian, nut free. We looked at where the DJ would be. We talked ballpark costs. We got a tour. I paid a deposit.
I think I will need to save more than six hunnit and fiddy dollars. We won't be eating out much, unless we have a free voucher.

We will be making things and doing things for this party. I will keep you informed from time to time.
My kid's parties are the reason I can't afford to journey to Venice.
I wonder if there are people in Venice who long to travel to South Gippsland Victoria, Australia? Perhaps they have parties with pavlova, and wear Akubra hats, with didgeridoo music and Waltzing Matilda playing. There is a large fireplace in the function rooms, with a gold mirror over it. Maybe those Venetians can step out of it, and we can cross to Venice through there too.
Well, potentially, anything can happen at a party..... stay tuned!
