My husband turned a quarter century old last weekend! Crazily enough, he shares a birthday with our oldest brother and our sister-in-law! While we couldn’t be a part of everyone’s birthday celebrations, I was able to spend the whole day with my honey and that evening we had a little get-together with some of our oldest friends. Here’s the little treat spread I put together:
My husband isn’t too colorful of a guy so I tried to stick to mostly black and white. But it was really hard (read: impossible) for me to keep color out so I accented with turquoise, hot pink and yellow.
Okay, okay, the “accent colors” kind of ended up taking over, huh?
The cookies in the middle are a super simple treat that I like to call faux whoopie pies.
All it is is 2 eggs, 1/3 cup oil and a box of white cake mix. Mix together and add food coloring! Roll into balls and bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Fill with any frosting you’d like.
Way fun right?!
Other treats included zebra cakes, powdered donuts, cake batter dip and colorful caramel popcorn.
The donuts were just too white for me so I made a little powdered sugar and milk glaze with a little food coloring and drizzled it on top. The pink and yellow didn’t show up too well for the photos but it’s there!
I think colored white chocolate would also have been a great choice for that.
The popcorn was held in cute little cones and I used this recipe which made the most delicious fruity-flavored bright colors!
The utensils were covered in washi tape!
And I added cute little flags to the straws.
We had a wonderful day and weekend. Look at that handsome 25 year old with our sweet, sleepy little girl!!
I just love those two to pieces!!!! And I love celebrating birthdays with them! Before we know it, we’ll be saying happy 25 to our baby! sniff, sniff.
