Make a wish! Birthday cake complete with trucker hat party favors.
We recently celebrated the 33rd birthday of my friend Ryan, with his wife Ari and their beautiful daughter Adi. Ryan and Ari are high school sweethearts and I met them back in college when I was 19. My boyfriend at the time was in the same fraternity as Ryan and, while that relationship is long since over, I always thought one of the perks from it was getting to know these two.
As always, Ari put together a lovely little spread (complete with large tissue paper pom-poms). She is a trained chef and always makes the most delicious food.
It was somewhat of an Octoberfest theme, with Bratwurst and all the fixings. But, the difference between Ari's fixings and mine is hers are ridiculously awesome and look like they come from a magazine.
This spinach artichoke dip was out. of. control.
If you ever see this wine, buy it and drink it. It was one of the smoothest red wines I have ever had.
German Chocolate Cake. Uhm...OKAY.
And peanut butter sandwiches for "the kiddos."
Speaking of kiddos, I give you a little photo montage that I call:
ADI EATS A BITE OF CAKE
Yay! She did it!
(oh how I wish this photo was in focus!!!)
Happy Birthday Ryan! May this 33rd year of your life be the best one yet! And thank you, Ari, for the lovely party.
