Weekend Party At Lake Geneva

The weekend really passed fast. Went to a party on Sunday. The party was held at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva. The place used to be the Playboy club back a long time ago.

I was really surprised how big the place was. After driving through the entrance, it took us almost another 15 minutes to get to the banquet area. There were at least 4 high-scaled(priced) golf courses and multiple condos/spas/restaurants on the way. Needless to say, it is the place for some rich people. I don't think that I would ever go in there if it was not for that party.

The party was to celebrate the 50-year anniversary of the friend's parents. 50 years! That's quite a long time. All their 7 kids, 20 something grand kids and the first great grand kid were there. People asked them about the secret to stay married so long. The husband was half seriously saying that you just got to listen to whatever your wife said, or at least pretend that you were listening. :)

The food was the usual summer picnic food in buffet style. Hot dogs, sausage, grill chicken, salad bars, and of course, disserts. There were lemon tarts, apple pies, and 4 kinds of ice cream bars. Fortunately, the party was indoor since it was very hot and humid that day (90 degrees!). Overall, it was a nice party!

Any chance that you got some more cake decorating ideas there?

Like, a golf course cake?

I had half a thought to visit there. A friend used to help manage it. Never got around to it but it definately sounds like a nice place.

Jimmy, thanks for the idea! LOL. I might really make one of the golf cake next time.

Rob, yeah, it is a nice place to visit.
