Birthday Extraveganza part 2

TWO Birthday celebrations you say?? Yes, please!

So last week I talked about how I got to spend my actual birthday with my mom as she came out all the way from Canada to celebrate with me. This week, I threw myself a little birthday party. I kept it small and just asked a few friends that live nearby. Instead of presents, I told everyone to bring a dish to share in potluck style as that is my favourite thing. And I had the genius idea of meeting in a park so I didn’t have to hectically make food and clean my place. Seriously genius.

It was a gorgeous day… although most days in California are 😉 And everyone brought such delicious, vegan food!

We may have had food comas after eating a wee bit much…

BUT after a bit, we totally had room for the cutest cupcakes in the universe made by none other than the lovely Robin!

My friend Sarah was adorable and brought a cute little camera that prints mini pictures (like a polaroid… but not).

I’m feeling very grateful and happy to have such great friends =)

If you came to the potluck, what would you have brought???

  1. That is such a lovely way to celebrate – I love picnics and good food and good company and yep those cupcakes are adorable. Happy birthday – would have loved to bring you a dish but i would have probably dithered over what to bring – maybe the gf vegan chocolate cake I made on the weekend but I still need to improve my decoration skills – have much to learn from Robin!

    1. Picnics are great. And I love potlucks =)
      I think you could most definitely hold your own at a potluck – you’re always making me drool haha ;p Wish you lived closer together so we could potluck together.

  2. That is a cute idea to decorate cupcakes with those cute little chocolate molds! It is obvious I never thought of it. ^__^ Everything looks so yummy. I think parties work out best when everyone does a little of something.

  3. Yay for second birthday celebrations. :)
    Those cupcakes are seriously adorable, the little kitties! I die.
    I would probably have brought some brownies or some cookies.
    And maybe a potato salad or something for a savoury option.
    I love picnics!

    1. I’m a total birthday nerd – I want lots of celebrations haha ;p
      Ah yes, you would totally appreciate the little kitty cakes =) Brownies or cookies would have been very much welcome. Potato salad would have been good too! Wish you lived closer Susan.
