Valerie’s Birthday

I had the best birthday! Wonderful friends, amazing food and drink, a little late night craziness — what more could you ask for? My husband arranged for Chef Cal Stamenov, along with his trusty sidekick and amazingly talented pastry chef, Ben Spungin, to come down to Santa Barbara with the mission of cooking a non-traditional dinner for my birthday guests and me.

We rearranged our collection of outdoor furniture to provide areas for informal dining and conversation, a bar, and placed patio heaters throughout for comfort

We designed the party to be fun and easy, but memorable. And memorable it was, because I requested that all my guests wear a wig that night. I’m telling you, this wild little accessory really made the party fun. We spent the night switching headpieces, being wacky, and just generally having a blast. Enjoy the video!

Hi Val, I forgot we had the same Birthday. Hope you had a great one. I’m sure you did. I really enjoy all your great ideas and I wish I was your age. Even this toe ring doesn’t give me much skip in my step anymore. Say hi to AJ. Sue
