MY BIRTHDAY PARTY RECAP

Friday, November 19th, 2010

It’s been a crazy month! My birthday party, going to New York, traveling to LA for work… I haven’t been home all that much lately! I finally got a chance to go through my photos from my birthday party, which we threw on Saturday, November 6th. My actual birthday was on the 13th, but we were away for New York so we moved the party one week earlier. Hard to believe I’m already 26! It was a blast!

This year’s party was quite different than last year’s party. The theme this year was “Champagne and Tequila”… so we didn’t have to spend too much time mixing drinks. It was a delicious and dangerous combination :)

I made a triple batch of my favourite chocolate chip cookies recipe for the party.

This year, I decided to have the party catered by Smoke and Bones BBQ Catering. They are based here in Vancouver and do AMAZING BBQ catering. They bring this super cool smoker truck along to their events! All smoking and cooking is done at the event.

I ordered their amazing award-winning BBQ baby back ribs, smoked chicken wings and drums, and award-winning baked beans (with secret ingredients!), cornbread, and coleslaw. It was a delicious spread.

I can’t recommend them enough. They are very professional, prompt, reasonably priced and the flavours of their food is incredible. I will definitely be booking again with them next year.

We also had a keg of GIB Gastown Amber Ale!

The rest of the party was a lot of fun. I drank a little more than I normally do at my own parties, so I probably look quite silly in these photos. Apologies :)

Quite a few people attended — we had about 150 people over the course of the night.

Oh yes, the snake wine that a friend brought. This was horrible… pretty much the worst thing I have ever had to drink. Never again!

There was a lot more space this year since we had both the outside, inside, bedroom, and sports room open. The tent on the patio really helped keep everything warm, dry, and toasty!

I wore a floor-length dress from BCBG Max Azaria and coral pink Ferragamo shoes. Needless to say I tripped over myself a couple times ;)

The cookies were all consumed.

And so was a lot of champagne and tequila! All in all, a very fun night. Thanks to all my friends who came out — it was the best birthday present ever to see you!
