The best birthday brunch... ever.

I love being able to throw parties to get my friends together and spoil them with good food. That was certainly the plan when I went to plan my birthday brunch this year.

Little did I know that my incredibly sweet, kind friends would turn the tables.

Half of the fun for me is setting up for a party. I decided to pick a few of my favorite things to decorate around.


Black and white damask:

And lots of warm, eggplanty-purple:

The menu:

Broccoli-cheddar quiche:

Cranberry coffee cake (recipe coming soon!):

Raspberry coffee cake:

Caprese skewers (inspired by Iowa Girl Eats):

Because it was a girls' brunch, I thought it would be fun to put out nail polish, magazines, and crafting materials. Friendship bracelets, anyone?

Mimosa-making supplies:


 Morning glory muffins:

My wonderful friends surprised me with rainbow cupcakes with clouds and a pot of "gold" Hershey's nuggets at the end of the rainbow! What goes around comes around.

Nail painting is serious business.

Lots of laughter:

And one partied-out pup:

Thanks, friends, for the loveliest birthday a girl could ask for!
