It's My Party Recap

Saturday, I celebrated my 34th birthday. I can tell you I partied like I was turning 21. Glad I'm past that stage in my life :-). We started off the celebration with a classy cocktail party at my house and then we headed to downtown Baltimore to the Power Plant. (No pictures of that thank God!)

If you are a reader of my blog, you know that I am not a cook at all. So the food was courtesy of some of my favorite take out places.

I like the idea of a tasting party and I think I will have a bigger one soon. Pier 1 has the cutest tasting collection. I got the shot glasses from there. They also came with small spoons.

The spoons for the Mexican Gumbo were purchased at World Market for .99 a piece



As part of the gifts to my friends, I decided to write a personal letter. I have to admit I cried all night long writing these letters. Each one of my friends mean so much to me. It was a great honor to have them celebrate my birthday with me.

For the favors, I found the perfect Turquoise boxes and bags at Home Goods. Inside was a notepad to write notes to their friends and family and a Picture Holder. I took a picture with each friend which will be sent in my thank you cards.
