Birthday Garden Party


Last night was a birthday party for one of my dear friends. We got together, the three of us who used to run around on day trips and called ourselves Thelma and Louise and Louise! First we checked out a new local restaurant. And then home to Mom's so she could join the fun.


I did a little garden theme. Used garden gloves to hold the silverware and napkins. The cupcakes were carrot raisin with caramel filling and icing. Had a cracker dip and tried the new Ritz bacon crackers. My friend brought chocolate dipped strawberries!! And we had sugared pecans. Yum!


In the center of the table is a really old set of my Grandmother's... Delft blue Dutch sugar bowl, salts and peppers, and the little maid who gardens there among the windmills...

We really enjoyed the celebration!

What a fun teaparty/celebration. Which one are you? Louise or Louise? It sounds like you 3 had a lot of fun together over the years. How nice to go home to finish the celebration with your Mom. xo Diana
