I hosted a birthday party for my girlfriend, Yuri.
The theme was
Roses & Champagne!
I decorated with pretty roses everywhere!
The centerpiece roses were real.
I had fun making the pink tissue & crepe paper ones.
If you go online there's lots of patterns to make them!
The purple roses are from a kit from Martha Stewart!
The centerpiece was fresh roses.
The wine and water glasses are from Anthropologie.
The dishes are Royal Albert, New Country Roses and
Royal Albert, Polka Rose.
I had little champagne bottles with their name tags on them.
When the girls arrived,
I served gin & tonic drinks with
pretty straws & rosemary sprigs!
I found rose paper plates and napkins for the appetizers.
I chopped up some pistachios.
I made Dates with Orange, Pistachios and Goat Cheese
for an appetizer.
The recipe is from the cookbook,
The Forest Feast by Erin Gleeson.
I made small caprese salads on a salt block.
I served cooked shrimp on a bigger salt block with lemon & dill.
I made Crostini with brie, walnuts and drizzled honey.
I made Ina Garten's
Zucchini Basil Soup from her cookbook,
Make It Ahead.
Served with Sugar Crusted Irish Soda Bread.
The entree was a
topped with candied walnuts & edible flowers.
I made sugar cookies with rose edible wafer papers from
Pink Chocolate Bark with Sugar Candies.
I used pink chocolate to write out the words,
Rose & Champagne
to place onto the champagne glasses.
Mary made pretty Champagne jello shots.
She also made the birthday cake.
It was a work of art and delicious too!
