Our dear Jen, one of the CookingThyme team, turns 30 today, so we knew we had to do-it-up big! We surprised her with a party Sunday afternoon, and even though she was a little under the weather, we think it was quite a success.
|Blissini is one of our favorite drinks, and also one of the easiest to make.|
It's a simple mix of equal parts orange juice, pomegranate juice and prosecco.
|Guests tested how well they knew Jen with some JenTrivia.|
|We used simple, easy-to-make decorations, like this doily garland and a string of old [adorable] photos of Jen.|
|Coconut cupcakes always seem to be a hit! You just can't beat cream cheese frosting!|
|And allow us to introduce a family favorite: Frango Cakes. A little nutty cake with a chocolate mint topping and a|
generous dollop of whipped cream. Divinity.
|What's better than crisp shortbread cookies with raspberry jam inside? We're not sure.|
|Our sign of success: an empty bowl.|
Happy birthday Jen! We'll throw a party for you any day!
