Promised Mom


I promised my mom some pictures of the table deko from my birthday party. Anja and I found both the tiny wellies and the fake grass hysterical. The flowers in the boots are real. The mini rubber ducks were given to the children as favors . Funnily enough , I just remembered that I bought these table cloths (at Ikea) 10 years ago. Anja and I had discovered that our birthdays are only a few days apart and we celebrated together for the first time, inviting the laidies in our club. I wish I could remember the menu .
This birthday the menu was chili con carne, onion bread , honey oat bread, a cheese platterwith grapes and strawberries, brownies and tiramizu. All of it home made. I even baked the finger biscuts for the tirimzu.

OMG Rachael, that is a total hoot!!! It almost convinces me that I should actually celebrate my birthday instead of just letting the day go as it will. ;)

What fun! I have only used boots as a decoration outside but they were ceramic.
The food sounded great. Thanks for sharing your merriment.
