Cake Cake Cake

loveonsunday my birthday Okay.  That Rihanna track is not really a birthday song and we all know she's not talking about cake.  But, I figured my post title was rather appropriate since my diet has been filled with sugary treats and that song plays in my head every single time I bite into a delicious cupcake.

So yup, it's ma birthday today!  The past year has been amazing for me on all fronts and I feel so thankful for all the blessings that have come my way.  I got engaged to the love of my life and I decided to invest more time in what I truly love to do - I honestly couldn't be happier!

I decided to postpone today's Thrifted Thursday to share some photos from the wonderful dinner party I had this past Saturday.  It was an evening with my favourite girlfriends and we had lots to celebrate - birthdays, graduation, engagement and a surprise baby announcement!  I live in a tiny condo so having 8 ladies for a sit-down dinner called for some creative seating options.  Unfortunately, my lens was wonky and it was a little hectic so I didn't get as many photos as I wanted.  Plus, I wanted to relax, soak it all in, and enjoy the evening.

loveonsunday, my birthday

Thanks to all the who came out that night and for the thoughtful presents.  A big shout out to my girl Fleur, who spent the entire afternoon in the kitchen and to Kristen of Sugar Love Confections who provided the amazing desserts.

I hope you all have a blessed day today! xo

Dinner Party, Anyone?

While searching for diy wedding projects, I came across some fabulous table styling inspiration. I really love a layered look and when hosting an intimate dinner party, how fun would it be to dress up your table with some beloved artifacts or thrift finds?  So I've rounded up some of my favourites:

Something about that first image really has me inspired.  And it's funny because the name on that plate happens to be one of my besties!  My birthday is coming up so perhaps a dinner party is in order?  Who's in?
