Two Sundays ago we had a 'hulba' or engagement party in our kitchen. The girls spent at least [months] preparing and imagining decoration ideas for that one night. And I have to give them credit...they really did a good job. Past decorations have often looked a tad cheezy, this time they upped the class factor. I liked it. The sunday of the hulba we, the boys and girls collected tables from the kitchen basement and school to make room for all the people that would come and celebrate. Sing, and eat. We set up tables, and arranged all the neccessary cutlary and decorations on the tables. and that was it. The women took care of the food.

I'm sorry if you were expecting photos of the actual celebration. I don't have any. Cameras are not allowed at the event.
