21st Birthday Celebration

This past Saturday our gorgeous and beautiful eldest daughter Charlotte turned 21.  We celebrated with family and close friends at a Thai restaurant, thoroughly enjoying the food and atmosphere.  Afterwards we came back to our home for celebratory cake and general fun and mayhem.  Here are a few photos from the birthday celebrations.

 I made the cake which was a white chocolate cake with cream cheese, white chocolate and butter icing and decorated with fresh pale pink rose buds.  The cake was delicious, a first time recipe too.  :)


 
I made the table decoration, hung pink and white streamers, fairy lights and pink balloons

Happy Birthday Charlotte!!

It's hard to believe we have a 21 year old daughter, I don't know where those years have gone.

Happy belated birthday to your lovely daughter Anne. I'm sure it is difficult to know where all those years have flown, that's just the way it goes. The cake is spectacular - the icing looks way too tempting for me though! I'm sure you were pleased with it all and it sounds like you all had fun.
