Nothing feels more like summer around our house than firing up the grill and chomping into a smoky burger under blue skies and sunshine. We’ll be sticking around town for the 4th of July this year, and I think a burger themed bash would be a fun twist on our usual run-of-the-mill barbecues! Trying out a whole bunch of different burger recipes with crazy toppings sounds like heaven to this pregnant lady’s ears. And you certainly don’t need to twist my arm for an excuse to make some of these whimsical balloons or this showstopper of a cake, although I don’t have high hopes that mine would come out quite as lovely…
Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes! The crazy tornado weather that hit NYC over the weekend blew over just in nick of time, so it was nothing but beautiful weather on Sunday – phew! I had so much fun at the BBQ that I didn’t snap many photos at all, but I DO have some pics of these cheerful flower numbers that were the backdrop to our party. Our patio has these big framed 4 foot square areas, (for no particular reason I can figure out) so I decided on a whim to fill them up with paper flowers…without, you know, doing any sort of calculations. I completely underestimated the size of these things, and spent the day before the party frantically cutting up mountains of tissue paper. They turned out quite lovely though, so it was worth it! I used this awesome tutorial to make the flowers, which requires nothing harder than stapling. All in all, I couldn’t have asked for a better way to enter a new decade. Turning 30 certainly goes down a lot smoother when you’re surrounded by friends, pitchers of sangria, and a boat load of paper flowers :-)
A bit of confetti-inspired cheer for life’s impromptu parties!
It may be all sparkly girly party time in these pics, but in reality it’s a man party, man! Happy 30th birthday to my best friend and loving husband! Looking forward to another year of laughter, good food and adventure together :-)
