Next weekend we're celebrating 40 years of Rodney. lol.
But seriously, we're having a small get together, light lunch, drinks......
This requires organisation and decoration. Of course!
My theme is simple and minimal, a rustic theme if you will.
I'll be serving finger food and then setting up my kitchen island as a dessert station.
Below are some pictures of my 'preparations'
Firstly the cake stand
Fortunately my Step Dad is a Farmer with loads of wood at hand. I asked him if he could cut me some pieces for Rod's birthday. I kind of felt like I was going a bit over the top when he drove in on his tractor with the tractor saw attached. But apparently this was the best way to obtain a flat surface.
I am truly grateful and very impressed. I think it looks awesome now, can't wait to see it with the birthday cake on top!
Plus below are some additional serving platters.
I think the 3D effect adds loads of character.... yes?
I plan on serving a cheese cake, a meringue and some cake pops on these babies.
And to finish this off I thought I'd throw in some glass jars decorated with twine, filled with flowers.
Simple but effective.
Do you love the 'back to nature' look?
