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!

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.
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!The Cake
I customized the Caramel Spice Cake with a measuring tape to pay homage to Fallon’s love for fashion design and various Autumn flowers and branches.
I had fun creating little versions of her favorite brunch foods. Everything was mini and made by little ole’ me!
