A Few of My Favorite Things // Birthday Brunch

I can’t believe a full year has passed since my BFF’s birthday! Happy Birthday Fallon! This story is dedicated to the surprise birthday party I had for her last year. Picture it! It was 2012 and we in the Tri-State area were still trying to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. Her boyfriend and I were trying to secretly plan a party, but none of us even had electricity! We kind of lost hope and he decided to take her to dinner elsewhere. I just HAD to do something for my BFF as so many years had passed with no celebration. Rain, shine or hurricane it was on!

Literally, 2 days prior to her birthday my electricity came back on and the invitations went out. We surprised her with an Ice Skating date in Central Park – favorite thing #1 then followed up with brunch at my house. She had absolutely no idea we had this planned and it was such an incredible day filled with friends, fun and laughter!

A Few of my Favorite  Things Birtday Brunch  I thought the gold, peach and orange colors were perfectly Fallon. Soft and pretty, yet bold and makes a statement. Beyond that it was the best way to include her ultimate fall obsession – PUMPKINS!
PS. If you look really close you will see I also added a gold knitting needle to the centerpiece.

Peach Orange Flowers

Gold Tassel Giant BalloonI had to include these giant balloons and I tied the metallic gold streamers to create a tassle.

The Decor
My goal was to surround Fallon with all of her favorite things which includes Autumn, pumpkins, flowers, books, owls, books, sparkle, interior and fashion design. It’s a lot to get in, but I think I nailed it! The Birthday Girl was pretty pleased!A Few of my Favorite  Things Birtday Brunch Cake Caramel SpiceThe Cake
