party : birthday picnic

Hosting a party is a lot of time and money, so this year I wanted to do something more laid-back for my birthday.


Roland & I are fortunate to live super-close to both Piedmont Avenue & the Morcom Rose Garden, so I decided we’d have a birthday picnic.

We walked down to the Avenue to pick up some grub – ps, have you ever had Gregoire? It’s an adorable, fancy takeout place!


We met up in the rose garden, put on party hats & enjoyed our evening picnic!

Afterwards, we walked back to our place for yummy cupcakes made by Rachel, lavender lemonade made by me (recipe here!), and lavender French 75s (recipe here!).

We streamed some sweet beats by the Flashdance – I wish I had pictures of it, but an epic dance party broke out in our teeny apartment!

This was such an easy & inexpensive idea that allowed our friends with kids to come party with us for a while and allowed me to RELAX & enjoy turning 28!

xo, S.
