This past weekend, I threw a dinner party for a dear friend's 30th birthday. Originally the party was going to be on this beautiful brick patio surrounded by a garden and fountains. It was a perfect French garden theme.......but the weather changed our plans. Memories were still made and it was a good time. One thing that the Army has taught me is to celebrate life now. I'm forever grateful for that lesson. Husbands deploy & friends move......so treasure life and celebrate these moments.
I made the chargers and the #30 sign out of rolled moss. I'm excited to have the chargers for future parties/holidays (perfect for Easter I think).
Before the party I had discovered that my friend (being from Texas) had a secret love for fried oreos (I had never even heard of these!). I borrowed a deep fryer and for the first time in my life, tried my hand at deep frying. I fancied things up a bit by giving it a French label. Then I kept with the French theme by making macaroons with a maple buttercream filling.
