Confectionery Celebrations

Maybe its because my mother has always took such pride when welcoming people into our home that I myself love hosting friends over my own casita whenever I have an excuse to celebrate. This weekend's pre-birthday gathering was no exception when I rounded-up a few old and new friends for an intimate confectionery celebration. Inspired by my collection of  guests, I crafted a vintage set-up with some birthday treats that had a fun twist. Simple and quick, I whipped together chocolate cupcakes in cones, topping them with frosting and sprinkles. Always loving a classic throwback, I also offered mini soda pop concoctions in classic coca-cola bottles. A final favorite touch, I placed olives in my depression glass butter dish. An estate sale discovery, I new this green grab would someday be more that just a decorative kitchen piece.
