My 32nd Birthday ..... Small but Nice.

I'm finally getting around to sharing pictures of my birthday, from a week ago. I was nothing big, just a small gathering with family and a couple of friends. I didn't have much time to actually plan or put it together. You mama's know how it is, everyone else always comes first and getting to do something for yourself is at the bottom of the list. With some help from a couple of my party besties, I was able to get some desserts on my table. I was also able to incorporate black and white stripes (which I'm obsessed with right now), even some Tiffany blue. I love it! You will see that this was all about MY favorites, so it was perhaps one of the best birthdays ever :)

My awesome cousin bought me my favorite, strawberry cheesecake cupcakes from Cupcakes Couture in Manhattan Beach, Ca. I made these wrappers for them. I was in heaven!

I love strawberries!
Got these beautiful spoons from my girl Miranda at Whimsical Printables. The yummy banana pudding dessert was made by my "intern"/friend, Cindy of Bows N' Beauty.

Who makes the most beautiful treats, Roni of Roni's Sugar Creations does, that's who!! My jaw dropped when these oreo cookies arrived, seriously.

I loves me some glitter! On my cookies and spoons :)

The birthday girl... moi! :)
If you know me, you know I LOVE potato!! I wish I could marry it ;) heh!
This is the sexiest thing I've ever seen!

Simple centerpieces. I sprayed painted these Dollar Tree silver trays with chalkboard paint and wrote a little 'Happy Birthday' on them. I added these burlap flowers that I bought at Michael's. The galvanized pitchers I also purchased at Michael's. Added some flowers and wrapped the handles with ribbon.... DONE.

Anyone up for Mimosa's? I had to have a small mimosa bar. Just a couple of juices and fresh berries, with your fave champagne, that's all I need.
I made the 20x30 sign for the table.
I painted the stems of my champagne glasses with more chalkboard paint. It was great for my guest to personalize their glass, even take them home as a favor.
Black and white striped straws are from Cio Zari. Thanks for getting them to me in such short notice!

My family is gorgeous.

Wouldn't be a birthday without my BFPV <3
With my sister <3
Good friends!
With my "intern" Cindy! :)

Love it amiga!! Adore the black and white with the Tiff blue! Dying over your centerpieces, the spray painted trays, burlap flowers, and galvanized tins with hydrangeas...genius. And yes that baked potato is soooo sexy. LOL! But most of all love all the photos of you and your family and friends celebrating YOU! I know how much you do for others and it is great to see you enjoying and treating yourself. You deserve it girly : )
