Birthdays are full of crap, decorations, sticky foods, drinks and cooking messes. I have blogged long ago about birthdays, invites especially which have been super stressful, heart breaking for me to deal with. I have in the past done some great birthdays for my son but no one RSVP or shows up. Crap, I'm tearing up now!
Anyways, I threw my husband a 40th birthday party last week, rented a bouncy house for the family kids, served everything you can imagine, had perfect decorations for the backyard BBQ birthday party. A 40th is a huge deal and thought I better throw a party.
There are 2 things I'd do differently, have all the platters ready the night before. (I had everything ready but in containers) and ask someone to go around to snap some pics of the festivities and party setups. I took 3 photos, one of the cake and 2 bad random shots. I've requested any photos others may have took but haven't heard or seen any. :(
A chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing and a cherry filling. It was delicious!
Now that the party is done, now need to figure out what to do for the rest of the summer...
