Thank you for your lovely birthday wishes the other day. It feels more exciting being able to share my birthday with my bloggy friends. Much more fun.
I decided for my birthday that I wanted balloons, plus I thought my almost-5 year old niece would enjoy them when I had family over for dinner. She loved them!
I saw this idea on Pinterest. I bought a small cylinder of helium, some clear balloons and confetti. I used a cake piping fitting to open the end of the balloons so I could fit in the confetti. It wasn't easy but I loved the results. It made my dinner really festive.
Here's me just before opening my champagne. Yum!
I made myself a cake as well, the pink ombre vanilla cake. It turned out well. So much butter and sugar though! Half a kilo of each. Oh well...
Really, it wasn't that bad as Mum and the MIL did some washing up for me before they left. That was nice :)
Tonight Lyn and are are going out for dinner. I'm really excited and already know what I want to order - it's a funky place where you can order a few small plates. This might be the first or perhaps second time this year we have gone out for dinner. Terrible! Do you go out for dinner much?
Have a lovely Friday friends
ps I've realised it has been such a long time since I have done a vegie patch and garden update. I shall get onto it!
