An exquisite 
Birthday Party
Pour moi
(for me)
given by my sister!

My creative, generous, talented, loving sister
gave me a belated birthday luncheon on Easter Sunday.
She went all out...

Cake
This special, just-for-me cupcake was chocolate with strawberry jam inside. 
Yum!
The fresh mint and blue muscari flower made my heart sing.




Fresh flowers

Perfectly color coordinated with the cake, presents, dishes...



Place cards with menu


Gourmet food
Appetizer course

Too beautiful to eat, but we did!

The other courses were delicious, also.
Beef bourgignon, green beans, rosemary roasted potatoes
Spring salad with goat's cheese and pears
Chocolate cake with strawberry sorbet served in chocolate wafer shells


Presents
A shadowbox was a present, filled with other presents...
Love those straws!

Each gift was wrapped in such a special way.

Specialty chocolate Easter eggs...

A gorgeous shopping bag tied with a peach ribbon...

Such an exquisite bird on scrapbook paper...
My sister knows me...paper is one of my passions...

Exquisite wrapping paper with an elegant sealed wax fleur de lis...

Fleur de lis sealed feather and ribbons adorn a beautiful package.

Such an elegant party with good friends...
A belated birthday celebration to recall forever...

Sisters by chance,
Friends by choice

Amazing Absolutely Amazing. This is not a B'day Party. I guess this is a grand Wedding Party. What a great Arrangement of flowers and fantastic choice of flowers for birthday.
