A Sweet Birthday

So yesterday was my birthday. I turned 29 for the first time. I say first time, because I expect I'll want to stay this age for a few years to stave off being 30. But I'll worry about that next year and that's really not what this post is about.

This post is really because I had to share these amazing favors that my talented mom made for the birthday celebration that my husband threw for me yesterday evening. I love birthdays for the fact that you get to gather with those that love you the most! Any my dear husband planned a special surprise at Mangiamo's yesterday for me complete with a special Sweet Cakes birthday cake from Barb Hoek. He's amazing. I love you babe! But I digress...back to the favors...

My mom is the fabulous creator of Le Petite Gateau (website and blog coming soon!) and makes these and other tiny favors for weddings, showers, etc. These are her Petite Flower Pots that sit on marzipan coasters (all with special birthday greetings on them), and I swear I'm not saying this because I'm biased (really I swear!) but they are Amazing! I thought they were lovely just to look at, but when I bit into the chocolate and marzipan confection I was greeted with a cherry almond cream filling...heaven!! If anyone is looking for a unique favor I can't recommend them enough. Mom....you are fabulous.

Happy Belated Birthday! I LOVE Mangimos - one of my favorite restaurants. Possibly the place for our next lunch date? What a lovely birthday your hubby planned and your mom's little confections are adorable and look delish!
