Happy, happy birthday

It was my mom's birthday on tuesday and we joined forces to host a little tea party for her. Just for a few friends to share her special day. I wanted to recreate a touch of french decadence, a really pretty affair. Everything on the menu had to be pretty, girly and rich and lucious. There were macarons, apple-almond tarlets, french fruit tarts and lemon-curd mille feulles. Also little chocolate cup-cakes with rich ganache icing. It all went down a treat and the conversation flowed as did the champagne and tea.
We all need to spoil ourselves from time to time and what better occasion than a birthday! It was worth every bit of effort. Happy birtday mom! May this year bring only joy and love (and lots of it)!
