Choosing the theme “beautiful blooming flowers” for my sister-in-law’s 30th Birthday party was a cinch. She love, love, loves colorful flowers. Since they have a frisky cat in the family, she is not one to have live arrangements around too often and instead expresses her love for them through her jewelry, and clothing. I have collected lots of flower cookie cutters over the years and mixed them in with number 30’s and some hearts (of course!).
Nicole’s birthday dinner was set for a Saturday night at an Italian restaurant that serves its meals “family style”. I wanted to craft something festive that would dress up the table, but not be in the way like centerpieces sometimes can be.
Every birthday party requires a cake and to add a little extra love, I was inspired to make Nicole’s cake myself. After some detailed Pinterest research, I discovered the recipe for “THAT Chocolate Cake” which one reviewer aptly commented “If you could only have one recipe for chocolate cake, this would be the one.” So delicious! This recipe is a keeper!
It was a lovely evening and I can not wait to wear my flower crown again! Look for our how-to on these flower crowns coming soon! They take a bit of time but are easy to make!
Happy Birthday Nicole! The 30’s are the best… Enjoy every sweet minute! Xoxo Dani
