* 35 Times Around The Sun - Grown-Ups Rainbow Craft Birthday Party Brunch

I celebrated a Milestone Birthday recently and it was a lovely celebration,
surrounded by close friends, enjoying brunch, crafts
and a beautiful RAINBOW Birthday Cake!

(baked by the music teacher at school, Bene, who also happens to have a cake business
and gifted to me by my very good friend and kindergarten teacher, Sharon)

It was Rainbow inside and out!

 Good Drinks. (Champagne Mimosas)

Good Food... Spinach Quiche.

 Cheesy Potato Awesomeness. 

Baby Arugula Salad.
Anyone recognize my beautiful Table Cloth/Art Quilt?
(Mother's Day gift to myself this past year!) 

Good Friends. 

Etsy Rainbow Waldorf Star Votives
(Birthday gift to myself- because what husband is going to know to order them!)

Art Studio tables decked out in 
Contractors Paper.

We made Pressed Leaf Lanterns
(with Mod-Podge)  some of the leaves stuck better than others. 

 It was a bit of a craft fail. But MOST of them turned out

We also made Kite Paper Window Stars.  (I order my kite paper here from Palumba)

Favor Bags to take home Glass Leaf Lanterns (with Paint Chip Name Tags)

 My Awesome Card from "E" ; ) 

(Color Wheel printables from One Charming Party's

I have the best friends a girl could ever ask for.
A perfect way to celebrate 35 times around the Sun. 

pink and green mama, MaryLea

I think I should ask for a rainbow cake next year for my 35th! Looks like you had a great time.

Oh my goodness. I love that cake. Happy belated birthday, MaryLea. What a fun grown-up crafting session. I'm throwing one of these soon, so its interesting to see what you did. Not my birthday, but after seeing your cake, I wish it was!

what a cool party! happy 35th! that cake is fabulous! i wonder how it was done. this really brings me back to my own rainbow birthday party when i was either 5 or 6 (and the rainbow painted on wall of my bedroom, rainbow sheets, rainbow EVERYTHING in my entire world at that time!) hmmm, now i just might need another rainbow birthday for my adult self some year in the future! the little one is asking for a "rainbow artist birthday party" for her 4th in january, so i can't steal her theme this year (my bday is december.) ya gotta love the theme that keeps on giving, especially for us artist types!
