Another 50th Birthday...

First off, I'm sorry for my lack of posting this week, I've had a busy week to say the least. We're knee deep in buying a house, I had a big Lipstik event on Saturday, one this coming Saturday and wedding planning, needless to say, I'm pooped! Ok, enough about me, onto the fun stuff...

I thought I'd give you all a quick recap about the 50th birthday on Saturday for my close friends mother. This was one of the few events where I not only took care of the serving and prep but also the food. Organizing and cooking the food is always a dawnting and overwhelming task for me but I think I did a-ok!

Something I always like to add to parties are flowers and candles. I bought cut flowers and created 3 arrangements that I placed on tables around the house. I also set up mason jars with tea light candles and scattered them around the house for a romantic vibe.

All in all it was a fabulous party and an honour to work with this family!

Enjoy the Party,

Nicole :)
