Take a front porch in historic St. Elmo.
Cover it with a mismatch of tables and chairs.
Add some candles and flowers.
Let the sun set and gather friends from the various pieces of your day to day.
Prepare a delicious meal complete with two desserts.
Add in some wine.
Top with laughter and good conversation.
And there you have it. You've created your own perfect party.
Happy Birthday, C!
