if you recently celebrated a birthday, happy birthday!
we had a fun time yesterday celebrating with family. My sister turned 21 again :)
She came back from hawaii a bit ago and lucky her, she celebrated her birthday in hawaii while visiting our sister. So we had a sweet belated birthday celebration in her honor.
Mister handsome and i gifted her some very lovely gifts:
First by making some delicious chocolate walnut cupcakes and some pretty cupcake tops out of this months paper kit from Cocoa Daisy. I really love the dainty flowers :) And what better way to eat a cupcake right? a cup of one sounds soooo good right now :)
We also gifted her this beautiful ring from a delightful store we visited in Canada: Barefoot Contessa. SO adorable. I love the gold details. Very charming. xoxo
I also made her a pretty floral brooch. Which worked as a pretty little gift topper :) I think the two (the ring and the brooch) will look sweet together. Gifts must look good. and so do sweet sisters :)
And every gift needs an equally beautiful tag. I loved the gold on the ring so much i made a pretty gold foil garland tag to go with the gift. It's so shimmery. I almost passed out from the excitement :) To add the finishing touch... I punched out circles from vintage fabric sheets and sewed a little garland for her. I then wrapped the garland around the box for a perfect finishing touch. I love that everything serves more than one purpose :)
I made a few extra tags to add to my little shop here
And a while back i made these cute boxes to share some home made oatmeal cookies with loved ones. I also stocked a few in the shop here
i love birthdays. There is a very handsome man's birthday I cannot wait to celebrate coming up soon. i'm more excited about it than the birthday man himself :)
i'm hoping you enjoy a beautiful day
celebrate your everyday xoxo
