The tables were beautifully set (by Tina) -- the center piece was my favorite!

I made the picture above for him.

Oak and Rye in Los Gatos. They arrived with their own wood fired oven that they set up in the driveway. All the cooking for the evening was done outside in the little kitchen area they set up. More on the food later...
We had a full bar, complete with bartender-- I highly recommend hiring a bartender if you are having a party like this.
A great picture with Pete, his mother and his 5 sisters. Another picture was taken with me too, but I didn't like it. Boo to that.
Pete with one of his childhood friends Scott. Really I just loved the photo bomb by Tina in the back. Lol
While it is hard to tell because of the dark, but the lighting was beautiful for dinner.
I did not photograph dinner, but I should have. The first course brought out was a delicious gem salad. This was followed by a steak with succotash and chimichurri sauce. The servers placed each course in the middle of the table, family style. After the steak came the pizzas--yes, pizzas! 4 different kinds, all made in the wood fired oven. I thought I was going to burst, but they were all too good not to try.
Happy half century Pete! Hope the 2 day hangover was worth it!!
