Over the weekend we celebrated my daughter, Heather's birthday.
We had the traditional Labor Day BBQ (ka-bobs, pasta salad, etc.)
but also included cake, cupcakes, and candles.
And a few festive touches...
A cupcake liner and doily banner,
And home-made cupcakes, of course!
White cake and cream cheese frosting,
Sprinkled with edible pink pearls
and a sprig of hydrangea.
Served inside matching blue cupcake liners.
The table was decorated with a simple arrangement of garden hydrangeas.
This time of year, Nikko Blue turns green!
A happy celebration!
A birthday cake for candles, too.
Make a wish......
Oh-oh! Trick candles that won't go out!
But wishes still come true....
We all contribute to a gift certificate for a Kate Spade handbag.
A happy birthday girl.
Sometimes it's nice to have a big family....
And everyone goes home with a cupcake!
Hope you had a lovely, relaxing labor day weekend,
Tomorrow it's back to work and school once more,
but hopefully with wonderful summer memories.
