Birthday!

Thursday, August 18, 2011

I'm not ashamed to admit it–today's my birthday, and I have plans to enjoy each and every minute! I told John the perfect celebration would include an Indian feast from our favorite restaurant, Masala, a bottle of rosé champagne and this Tomboy cake from Miette served up on a new milk glass cake stand–I'm practically dizzy with excitement! Of course, my birthday week will probably carry into the weekend too, but can you blame me for milking this milestone birthday?

What's your favorite birthday cake, darlings?

P.S. I'm sharing a tiki favorite on Magnolia Rouge and I'd love if you came to visit me on The Knotty Bride, too! My "bloggistaship" with Alison starts today, and you do not want to miss lesson one!

  31. Lena, this picture reminds me of a comment you made many years ago at another birthday the 2nd one if my memory serves and of course it never does, so just go with me OK.
    Maria and Scott and many others were there and you weren't at full sentences yet, but Maria said "Lena what do you think of all this for your birthday" and your reply.."And cake"! Two years old. not the presents or the company but the CAKE!
