This weekend was full of birthday parties! We started off our weekend with our usual gym time and the boys swim classes. Then our afternoon was spent at home hanging out with the boys because we were going out that evening.
My sister hosted a birthday dinner at her apartment and I was in charge of decorations and cake. So, we needed to make sure we left on time to get there and set everything up before the guests arrived.
Then we headed out to pick up the cake! I went with jet black frosting and mix of sprinkles! It was so different and fun.
Then it was time to get to work and set everything up! I went with a boho/glam/winter vibe for the decor. I used plaid fabric for a tablecloth, gold sequin runners, gold chargers, a variety of brass candlesticks and mercury glass with a mix of flowers.
A yummy spread of appetizers that my sister put together. She had these amazing almonds that were coated in olive oil. Oh my! So good!!! I think I also pretty much ate most of that brick of white cheddar by myself.
She hosted 11 guests it was simply lovely. Her hubby made an amazing dinner and everyone had a great time!
On Sunday we had a kids birthday party in the morning and then that afternoon a brunch for my sister so, that she could celebrate her birthday with our parents and the boys.
My mom set a beautiful table:
Plus a yummy spread, which also included made to order omelettes, muffins and some sweet treats!
Best part was opening the gifts and getting to make the custom puzzle my youngest sister got her!
It was a long and fun weekend and I was able to sneak into bed by 7 on Sunday night! Perfection!
Happy Birthday Ximena! She is now going on day 3 of her birthday celebration, but it’s finally the actual date!
