Growing up in my house there were always a few days that all the kids looked forward to. Christmas with it's magic and lights (and where I'm from snow). Easter with the hunt, and more than any other day; birthdays. Your birthday was the best day of the year, partly because you didn't have to share it with anyone and also because my Mom did everything to make your birthday uniquely special. Sometimes that included parties, sometimes just a nice restaurant of our choice, but it was always our special day. Recently we did some fabulous florals for a sweet 16th birthday at The Club at Carlton Woods. With pink gerber daisies, purple monte casino and lavender alstromeria.
The buffet centerpiece was a little more whimsical with lilies, twinkling branches, and floating flowers. Ahhh, we just love birthdays!
