Twyla on Tuesday - Birthday Party

Hello friends!
Today is my birthday!
Because we have made plans for today,
we already had my birthday party.
Thought I would give you a peek!

If you've been a reader of our blog for awhile
you know that we have themes for each party.
This year, since my New Year's resolution was
to read more books,
they surprised me with a book themed party!

Lindsey found these adorable Little Golden Book
decorations and she and my son did the decorating.
I think they did a fantastic job!

Aren't the decorations cute?!
Lindsey even used her collection of Little Golden
Books as part of the decorations.
Yes, you are right!  There were several
books in all those packages!
I have a lot of reading to keep me busy!

I loved the wall decorations.
How cute is it to use the plates?!

This year we opted for cupcakes instead of a big
birthday cake.  They were made by a bakery here
in town and they were So Good!

Thanks for stopping by my party.
I am getting to spend the day today with
my family.
I am very blessed.

Have a wonderful day, ladies,
and happy birthday to all the other
July birthday girls!
Love, Twyla
