These are just a few pictures (including a really shoddy one of my outfit) from my golden birthday party last month. It exactly as I’d dreamed it would be my whole live - gold plates, cups, napkins, table cloth and forks. The only thing that was different was that we didn’t have gold streamers, since the party supply store didn’t carry gold ones.
As soon as I saw this cake on the ModCloth Pinterest board, I knew I wanted a bark cake for my birthday party. It took a little convincing, but eventually my mom came around and agreed to make it. She used an America's Test Kitchen recipe for the cake and frosting - since she didn't want to try to convert the original recipe into American measurements - and this recipe for the bark. Cake mix bark on a bark cake? How much more perfect do you get!?
As for my outfit, it was perfect as far as I was concerned. That dress is my LBD and one of my favorite dresses in my closet. I don’t wear it a whole lot, but I always feel like a bombshell when I do. It has box pleats on the side which I *love* and the whole thing is just so flattering. ♥
What is your favorite dress like?
