One of my good friends celebrated a birthday this week, so even though it was wet and rainy, I had her over for a little cake and tea.
I used a tea towel for the backdrop, one I got in Florence, Italy. I don’t remember what is says exactly, but something about preparing and cooking food for enjoyment, love and family.
I found these simple gold birthday hats at the grocery store and livened them up a bit with twine. I also grabbed the beautiful white flowers to freshen things up.
I really loved these washi tape stirrers with the pop of neon color. You just can’t beat washi!
It was just the two of use, so I made a little cake, and spruced it up with mini oreos. Not heathy, but oh so good with the yellow cake. And I made the T2 quince tea that mentioned in my last post, which was a big hit.
Overall, it was a fun afternoon, even dodging the rain.
February was a little crazy for me, so I’m just as glad to see it go. I’m hoping March will be better. My husband and I are celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary mid-month with a trip, so it’s already looking up. #needavaca
That being said, there were some great ideas floating around the web world in February. Here are some of my favorite and I hope you like them, too.
