This year I was lucky enough to spend my birthday in Tuscany, in one of the most beautiful coves I’ve ever seen, but that meant we hadn’t some proper time to celebrate. Yes, I bought myself cake for breakfast (of course!) and had a lovely dinner-for-two at one of the cosy restaurants facing the local harbor (not bad, eh!), but I hadn’t got the chance of properly putting together a very informal, but still, birthday “party”.
And so I thought we could simply pop some nice decorations on and bake some biscuits and cookies, and have a cosy “cookie bar” table all set up, instead of the usual tea break, that gave us a chance to properly celebrate! The table set up in particular, was definitely inspired by Talking Tables – they were kind enough to send over all the material (the cutest paper straws obviously included!) to put together a birthday table you can hardly forget, with a mint and peach colour scheme, all from their Mix & Match range.
Instead of serving pre-bought sweets, we had fun baking some cookies and biscuits and were happy to transform the sweet bar in a cookie bar, serving the biggest amount of chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever baked into a giant cocktail glass! We also prepared a couple of “cocktail” alternatives, one with some simple freshly squeezed orange juice and the other with said orange juice with a small addition of rum for anyone fancying an alcoholic alternative, and then bottled them all up in the cutest mini bottles, giving all the guests the chance of picking the paper straw they loved the most!
Can’t really recommend Talking Tables enough if you’re planning a bit of an homemade party and need some decorations. They’ll have everything you need to impress your guests! They also ship everywhere in the world, so you have no excuses! 😉
Anyone else obsessed with table settings?! x
