It’s no secret…I haven’t been in the blogging “mood” lately (it comes and it goes). But I haven’t just been sitting around re-reading the entire Harry Potter series… I have also been planning and preparing for my first birthday party in 27 years!
In celebration of turning 39 (for the first time), I hosted my own party on Saturday night. I cooked and decorated, and then enjoyed the company of family and friends-we-love-like-family.
My daughter designed these cute invitations for me:
…and that set the stage for a pinwheel-themed party ;-)
There was a wreath on the front door, softened by some wide tulle ribbon:
A pinwheel garland, also strung on wide tulle ribbon:
…and more pinwheels appeared on the dessert buffet…
…and what was for dessert, you ask? Well, there was
- white chocolate macadamia caramel corn,
- mint brownies,
- German chocolate mini cupcakes, and
- coconut lime crunch!
So you can see that cooking took a higher priority over blogging last week (there was also two kinds of lasagna and homemade cheesy bread). I ran out of time to take more pictures before the guest arrived.
Since I couldn’t share my goodies with all of you, I thought I’d share some goodies from my Etsy shop instead. Through Friday, August 31, you can get 10% off your purchase with the code 39BIRTHDAY.
