Lighthouse Party Details:
This is what Brenda said about planning/styling the party- “The lure of the sea touches something deep in the heart and imagination. Once sea fever takes hold, there is no cure! Walk next to a boy looking out across open water, hand over his eyes against the glare as he watches a tall ship glide past. Hear the crashing waves beating on the rocks. Sit on sand still warm from the sun while the stars twinkle overhead and the sweeping beam of a lighthouse guides vessels through the dark. This is where sea fever starts.
We brought the excitement and thrill of the ancient call of the sea indoors with a nautical themed party for Rory. It was great fun to see their eyes when they walked in the room! This is why we do parties. The memories are so important for kids…and moms!
I have always loved this poem by John Masefield, and until we can get back to the sea, this is what we will be thinking!
I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by.
I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gulls way and the whales way where the winds like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long tricks over.
