What Would You Do…

with this…?

53 grams of feathery piping plover among a ton of Lake Superior agates
(the agates are just waiting to be found!)

with this?

half a pound of pungent peeled garlic cloves

with this…

colorful dals
half a pound of colorful washed moong, masoor, and val dals

or with these…

furry felines
thirty-three and a half pounds of furry felines sleeping cosily on Thanksgiving

What would you do if you were invited to a very special occasion — Nritya Nipuna no less — with a birthday party to follow?

I have been invited to this special celebration and I humbly ask for your advice 🙂

What would you wear?

What would you bring for the birthday kids (there are two — a boy and girl)?
Is there a gift of special significance for sixteen-year-olds?

Would you bring some food along with the gifts; would that be welcome?
The party is to be held at a local school.

What would you do, if you were me?

Thank you in advance 🙂

    Linda, I know exactly what I would do with the garlic and dals but the Nritya Nipuna is a different story altogether. Usually for these functions we wear Indian clothes like a Saree or a Churidar. If you have any Indian clothese this is your chance to show them off. As far as I know, sixteen is usually not a milestone that has a special celebration.

    Yeah i totally agree with both of them, i would wear Indian sair or salwar ( mostly salwar as it ismore comfortable)
    My daughter is sixteen i think you too have a teengae daughter, when i go to a family friend andif they have a teenage daughter, i buy mostly earing or chains etc….. from the shop were my daughter buys for her.
    Normaly they are not expensive, the earings cost from 4€ and i buy few oof them as they can have a variety to change.
