Inspired By...

I'll just go ahead and warn you: I'm in a total party mood. And it's probably not a coincidence that our birthday is just around the corner. And while I'm not so big a fan of getting older, man oh man, do I love any excuse to throw a party.

...the perfect setting for a summer evening fête.

...a sunny cake using my favorite summer ingredient: bluberries.

...if I don't chop of all my hair in frustration before then, I'm considering this for my birthday hairdo, feather and all.

...pretty cocktails worthy of my balcony-grown mint leaves.

...practical yet ugly chairs made party-worthy.

...a (natural!) frosting color that pulls on my heart strings.
