Birthday Bonanza!

Husby and I have August birthdays. His was Saturday (Happy 26th, Lovie)!

Our best friends, A & K have August birthdays.


We decided to make it an annual tradition to throw an August Birthday Bash for the four of us. Their sweet baby's half birthday is on my birthday, so we celebrated her, too. But we celebrate her every time we're together - she's such a LOVE!

We had this bash on Friday night at my place. We had a great time and I served up a mexican fiesta. I forgot to take pictures of the food, so I hope you accept my deepest apologies. :)

But...more importantly than the food is the TABLE!

My table theme was black, white and green.

You better believe we had a banner!! We celebrate right! What's a birthday party without a birthday banner?

A made the most beautiful of cakes. I was so proud of her! I didn't know she had it in her. She's been my best friend since the 6th grade, and still - I didn't know she had it in her. ;)

And of course we had candles. And we sang "happy birthday to us" and we blew them out.

Oh, and I ordered these plates for us to have our cake on year after year. Don't you love them?!

They were perfect.

Would you just LOOK at this face?! Oh, she loves her Auntie Whitney.

Oh I love that baby girl!

Twas a fabulous Friday night!

I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.


  1. Looks like fun! Your table is so pretty! I would have more fun decorating the cake and would probably forget to set the table. I need to work on that part of my hostessesssessesssing.
