As June is coming to a close, I'm finally finished celebrating my birthday! I think I've milked it as long as I can this time!
Last week the my friend Sue @Rue Mouffetard hosted a birthday party for myself and Denise (the other June birthday in our group)
She greeted us with this array of appetizers!
Oh my goodness!
I can't begin to tell you how good it all was!
All homemade by Sue!
The table was set with the cutest bird theme!
Vintage china from her mother-in-law. She used the greens and purples of the cute little bird boxes she found and filled with Madeleine's for each of us.
Purple Ball Jars with candles
Lunch was Croque Monsieur and oh my was it good!! Ham and cheese gone wild!
A fresh salad with orange poppy seed dressing.
Not much left on any of our plates!
Sandie (Chatty Crone), Maureen (Sue's neighbor and fantastic artist), Me and the other birthday girl Denise!
Rose and our hostess Sue
Dessert! Amazing Strawberry Cake!
We couldn't leave Sue's without taking a closer look at her new car
Yes, this is a Ferrari! As close as I'll get to one I'm sure.
It is gorgeous!
Here we are with Sue's husband, 'The Boss' as she calls him. He is a hoot and we always enjoy his company!
Of course there were presents!
Guess which bag is for me??
You can never have too many note cards, especially if they have the Eiffel Tower on them
(do my friends know me or what)
Sue gave me this cute creamer with a pink bird on the handle and this wonderful kitchen towel
Already hanging in the kitchen!
Sandie gave me this cute bird...love it!
Denise gave me a Starbucks gift card...I can't wait for some yummy iced coffee soon!
Denise and I look forward to this party at Sue's each year!
Thank you Sue! You rock my friend!
Now a few gifts I bought for myself in the new category (as opposed to thrifty finds)
This awesome tote was found at WalMart for $10 I love it and have used it several times already
I found this fun summer purse at Marshall's
I love it! Lots of pockets and such a fun color!
Some new clothes and a new pair of shoes and I am a very happy Birthday girl!
Thanks for joining me in my June birthday celebrations and yes they are Finally done.
