Now we had some professionals come in an fix up the front of the house to give us some curb appeal, but that will come in another post. Once we finished up the yard it was time to get the party started. Annie got here prior to the party when I was running around doing last minute things and took pictures which I am so thankful for. Hear goes….lets start with dessert its the most important part of a birthday party! Torie and Jimbo ordered me a cake from Betty Cakes in Ocala, Florida, who did their wedding cake. It was delicious and I could go and order another one sit eat the whole thing myself right now..no joke (that’s another post)! My mom and dad were able to come up from Tampa and join us for the festivities. My new love in Tampa is the Peanut Butter Cake from Wright’s Gourmet, so mom picked up a small cake so I could indulge! Yumm!
I love yellow and green they are my favorite colors, so I wanted to incorporate lemons and limes into the table scape. Thankfully Annie and my mom have all these wonderful glass display dishes I was able to use for the lemons and limes. Adam and I got a pedestal beverage dispenser for our anniversary so we used that for some sangria and Torie let me borrow hers for the sweet tea. We ordered food from Backyard BBQ in Newberry, Florida. Oh it is making my mouth water as I think about it…RIBS, BEANS, GARLIC BREAD….YUM, YUM, YUM!! On the food and drink table I was able to use the sweet frames that were used for our sisters Kelsey’ sweet 16th a few days earlier. At her party they had her pictures in them but, I put in a piece of paper with what each item was and they turned out so cute!Now that you got the set up lets get the real party started! It was great to have everyone come and celebrate with me!! I will never forgot my 25th. I even blew out 25 candles in one breath! The cake was amazing I had two pieces that night and much much more later on that week.
What a great night we had! I am thinking come February 10th we will have to have one for the hubbster!!!*LRW*
