30th Birthday Party in Paris


Being the fantastic technological whiz that I am, I completely erased the post that had pictures of my 30th birthday party. It's just as well, because I posted a picture of my friends without getting their permission first. I can't remember what I wrote in the post so I will just improvise.

The table before the carnage.

I wanted to do something grand and exciting for my birthday like go ski-diving or skinny-dipping in ice cold water, but I didn't have those options so I decided to invite a few of my closest friends-I had to limit the party to eight because I simply did not have room for anymore people-and have a glutton-fest.

Just in case you are unable to guess the theme, it was pink. And yes, I made a cookie for everyone with their name on it.

I had seven bottles of champagne, shrimp, nine different types of cheese, macarons, chocolate, lots of really great smoked meats, pear tarts, fantastic bread, tapenade, blinis, stuff from Picard, huge olives, salmon and carrot cake. It was fantastic! I was so happy to spend the day with my friends, eating and drinking!

An eighth of the food.

One of my flower arrangements. I did them both.

A fire hazard.
