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.
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.
