Mom's Birthday

My mom has a sweet obsession with hens and roosters AND polka dots! I can't believe I've never thought to make that her birthday theme this year. The day started with an amazing Jazz brunch over at Nolas in downtown where Sharon Cline was performing her sultry love songs and Diana Krall covers. Some of you that went to our wedding will recognize her name as she performed at our ceremony and reception. Brought back a lot of wonderful memories and it just made my moms birthday a lot more special.

The afternoon ended with coffee and treats at home where I dolled up the table for mom. I used the polka dot hen theme together with black, yellow and red for a pop of color. I designed a cute cake topper for the cake as centerpiece and mini hay adorned with ribbon and cookies. As favors the most adorable and delicious polka dot hen cookies by Eat Sweets Pastry were placed on each plate. My mom absolutely loved the cookies and were her favorite part of the table. It was a wonderful day and I'm so blessed we could celebrate together.
