As you may have seen on my Instagram, I helped to host a birthday celebration this weekend! The initial plan for Maggie’s birthday had been to drive out to New Braunfels, float the river, and enjoy each others’ company. Then we got lazy, didn’t want to find a house to stay at, or drive all the way out there. We were also lacking in money from a very fun girls weekend consisting of a little too much shopping and cocktail sampling. Classic. Continue reading “Cake and Champagne Party”
Fri-DIY: Cupcake Bouquet
Every birthday deserves cake. And if you’re like me, I think every birthday deserves flowers too. There’s something really luxurious about having a fresh bouquet on the dining table, livening up the whole room. Well, this Fri-DIY might not include a scent, but 52 Kitchen Adventures shows you how to make a cupcake bouquet that is perfect for a sweet birthday girl!
It’s such a simple idea, which makes it the best kind of DIY in my opinion. By using the Frosting Tips tutorial I put up last year to make the rose cupcakes, all you have to do is stick toothpicks into a foam mold and arrange your “flowers” into shape. If someone was to give me this as a birthday present, I think it would go down in the books as one of the cutest gifts ever received. It would also be personal because I love cupcakes and flowers… but really, who doesn’t? What a thoughtful gift for anyone!
If you have a birthday coming up, grab some supplies and get going!
Birthday Cake Puppy Chow Recipe
I love having my girl friends over. They appreciate dessert like it’s their jobs, and since I act like it’s my job to bake all the time, we go pretty well together! Also The Bachelor is back for another season, so we have a reason to see each other weekly again! This called for celebratory sweets when we got together for a viewing party.

Birthday Sneak Peek! Tea Parties and Magic Pom Poms
You’d think I was turning a whole 4 years old today if you purely read the title of today’s blog post. Sadly, no. I am turning 24… what in the world? Although being 24 sounds really old to me, it adds up. I’ve been working in the real world for over a year now and feel somewhere in between being incredibly confident and totally useless every other day. My team seems to have adopted me and my work habits happily so far…might be the sprinkling of baked goods every so often, but I guess we’ll never know… While feeling so adult, there are so many moments that bring me back to how young being a twenty-something is. Example: Movies watched this weekend while party planning included Mulan, School of Rock, and Robin Hood.
I’ve also been blogging every week for 9 months now!! It’s been a serious privilege to have such supportive friends, family, and readers along the way, and it’s the best gift I could receive going into my 24th year. I live, eat, breath, and love this blog with all of my heart. Or sometimes with just my stomach.
I came to terms with being in my “mid-twenties” by hosting a frivolous tea party. Since it was my birthday, I decided to really go for it and plan a party I wanted to attend! This included adorable decorations, tons of food, tea, alcohol, and the best of friends. The only thing possibly missing was a yard full of bunnies… *sigh*
Although I’d love to share all of the makings of this party with you today, it’s my birthday…so I’m taking the day off! Here’s a sneak peek of all of the projects to come, along with my beautiful friends’ faces and a few other random shots. I’ll link the posts as they come in the next few weeks!
