Moonpies 'n Sunflowers

Tables for the 90th birthday party of Selmian Kathryn Tucker Windham were arranged with sunflowers and baskets of Moonpies. I think these colorful tablecloths really add to the summertime celebration!

Mrs. Windham's birthday was celebrated with a "Comb Concert" June 1, followed by a New Orleans' style parade to the Performing Arts Center.


I finally got my homemade video of the event edited.
You can view the party set to the tunes of Mike Mahan and his Dixieland Band from Shelby County, Ala., in the Kathryn Tucker Windham Day Video Part 1 and KTW Day Video Part 2.

Oh, Mahan happens to be a dentist in a cabin in Brierfield who also plays in the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. That's an interesting combination!

A comb concert---how fun. Nice display. You have a wonderful blog. I too love Selms courtyards. I must visit more often. MB

I've never been a fan of the moonpies. I think it's something about the marshmellow.

The flowers are very pretty though. It looks like the birthday party was a smash hit!

A thoroughly happy post.

The flowers caught my eye, but I didn't start smiling until I scanned down on the basket of Moon Pies. My childhood swam back and flooded my memories.
