A week ago Saturday, Tarrywile Mansion came to life with a silver and gold themed 50th birthday celebration. Ernie and his children wanted to give their mom, Christine big blow out celebration for her 50th birthday. Ernie along with two of his daughters organized, planned, and executed the event all the while managing to keep it a surprise from the very observant Christine.
The mansion was decorated with 50 shiny gold and silver star balloons and accents, a slide show along with photos were displayed in the conservatory while the foyer was set up for music and dancing. Ernie arranged for one of the caterer’s wait staff to pose as a parking valet, the ruse was that they were going to a wine tasting, which wasn’t a far stretch seeing that we have had wine tastings at the Mansion in the past.
