When you go to an outrageous tea party or want to be incredibly fancy, petit fours are the perfect dessert. The dainty little bite sized bursts of sweetness taste just as good as they look.

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!
