|Birthday Flowers from her sweet husband!|
My daughter, Kira, turned 30 in August! It just doesn't seem possible, but you can't stop time, darn it! I traveled to Utah to spend a couple of weeks with her and help celebrate with a girls bash that I'll never forget! It was a beautiful night in SLC and we held the party in her backyard. Not sure which was louder the music or the laughter, but we had FUN!
|Vintage Hankie Garland|
I've been collecting vintage hankies for years and decided to make a garland with them to hang on Kira's deck for the party. I sewed them onto jute with vintage buttons. It was hard to get a good photo of it, but you get the idea. We also strung lights and it looked so pretty at night.
|Her newly landscaped backyard and garage. A windstorm caused a HUGE 50yr old Blue Spruce to fall and take out the garage. What a mess it was!|
The theme of the party was INDULGE! It was very "girlie" with lots of pink and salt water taffy and vintage linens and candles every where and did I mention PINK?
|Candles in various cups and glasses|
|Shades of Pink!|
|Nice water bottles, eh?|
Kira wanted a coconut cake and a coconut cake she got! Buttermilk Coconut Cake to die for! She also had a raspberry filled cake which was just as good. Each cake must have weighed about 10 pounds! I made her crown...the BIG 30! You're never too old to sport a crown, right?
|You CAN have it all!|
Her sister, Adri, drove up from Vegas and surprised her. It was awesome!

|Me and Kira....she's my best friend!|
I still can't believe she's 30! I'm so proud of the woman she's become. Very successful in her career, married almost a year to a wonderful man and she has a heart of gold! I am one blessed mama!
