50th birthday celebration at the Lemontree in Puerto Rico
Bella reminded me that we recently hosted a 50th birthday celebration. The partner of the "birthday girl" had asked Bella if we could prepare the Banana suite... the one with the jacuzzi, especially for her partner. It was the dream of the couple to pass this milestone by the sea. We decorated the suite with balloons filled with helium, a sign, beach balls and a tropical red paper parrot. Marilyn, our assistant manager also is a baker and prepared a simple but very flavorful birthday cake... which is featured below.
A recent article in a Washington DC paper suggests that couples are cutting expenses for weddings. You can read it here.
No doubt guests are cost conscious but it does not mean that you can't have an intimate and wonderful, memorable, affordable celebration by the sea. It takes some planning. If you have such an interest the Lemontree is an outstanding value and venue.
