More Backyard Birthdays

The summer is a busy birthday time for my family and it is my pleasure to be able to host so many of them in our own backyard.  My mom’s birthday was early this summer and we celebrated with close friends and family.

The birthday girl…lounging with a magazine {she always tells me, “I better where something nice because I might end up on your blog!” wink.}…

One of my favorite table cloths that I found at a thrift store…always on a hunt for vintage styled table cloths…

I am learning to serve options for people…this time I made cupcakes and brownies with and without frosting.  For those trying to watch their figure, a little less guilt.  I know that I hate it when people are trying to shove more food down my throat.  I want to give people the choice of whether they want to indulge or not…and not take it personally.  Whether or not people eat it or eat a ton of it, I know that it is delicious but want to be respectful of people’s diets.

As you can see, not much has changed…there was an adult’s table and a kid’s table!

  9. I love your back garden set up for the party - it looks beautiful. Chances of that happening in Ireland are slim - it rains too much - guests would have to bring their own brollies!

    My cousin on facebook today - I love Northern Ireland in the summer - it's my favorite day of the year!!!! (yes - few days of sun so far, and here in France it has not been much better this week, but still having a fab time)
