the soul sisters celebrate!!
It was time to celebrate Jennifer Juniper's 29th birthday!!! She's had several 29th's...but who's counting?...The soul sisters just lllooove to get together :) We had the shindig at my house and I had a lovely champagne punch to greet them. If you'd like to dig out your grandmother's punch bowl the recipe is reeeaally easy....
1 12oz.can frozen lemonade- thawed
1 12oz. can frozen limeade- thawed
1 12oz. can frozen orange juice- thawed
1 2 liter ginger ale
1 2 liter champagne
Mix juice in punch bowl. Stir in ginger ale, then add champagne. Do not stir. I added an ice ring to keep it chilled.
We got Ms. Juniper all dolled up for the festivities and then had luncheon in the dining room!!! Take note Chip if you're reading this....... I do use the dining room!!! We had my favorite salad,chicken salad croissant sandwiches, watermelon and THE.MOST.DELICIOUS CUPCAKES EEEVVVVVEEER!!!!! from Marzipan Mom.
We sang Happy Birthday and she opened her presents......we kept the rules the same as our Christmas party.....$10 limit/handmade....She loved everything!
I got her her very own canister! Filled with two skirts I sewed for her, earrings and my very own strawberry Pam's Jam....
The cupcakes Marzipam Mom brought were just perfect.......and soooo pretty on this adorable green polka dotted tray.
Ms. Joy crafted a glass tile necklace with Jennifer Junipers bird from the banner of her Hope Studios blog.....hhhhmmmm....wouldn't a cupcake be cute too???? :)
And Ms. Meg whipped up a batch of Pepper Jelly.....we need to descend on her house next for a lesson!!! And to get her up and running in Blogville......she NEEDS a blog!!!! We just have to come up with the perfect name for her.....we insisted that's the hardest part!!
Here's a flattering shot of her trying on one of the skirts...us sisters have a thing for dropping our jeans and trying skirts on!!! Who's next??? :)
And of course I had to have treat bags....I'm the treatgirl!!!!!!! A little bit on the grown up side with mini bottles of vodka and gin!! We girls lllooovve to celebrate!!!! hhhmmmm.....who's next?? :)
