Turning 21 and ahoy me hearties its a PIRATE party!!!

WELL it happened, my baby turned 21, not sure how or why or really when I became the mother of a 21yr old....but it did, and all those cliches are true it happens in a blink of an eye.
 We started the day with a wonderful breakfast spread, that I cooked for her before she had to go to work....
 Then I backed up a wonderful cake that you can find the recipe over here on my RECIPE BLOG, yep it's one of those must have recipes - so happy to share.

and this cake was shared with family and friends at what used to be our family favourite restaurant in DEE WHY moltofino's which is no more known as this but is now the AUBERGINE and it is bound to become one of our new favourites...the food was amazing...we all had a great time and ate way too much...just what birthday's are all about!!

 Then the work continued on the house and it was really down to the wire, there were tears shed on the party day, and many moments when we didn't think it would happen well not on the deck that in the early hours of the morning on the day of the party was not even started but well the gods were shining on us all, and yes we pulled out that very last minute 30 minute makeover and it turned our backyard into the wonderful glittery shimmering boat deck that played host to many a pirate, wench, deckhand and even a parrot - yep the photos can tell you it all...from the Tequila shots, to the cake let the photos show you what fun we had.

 ahh even the breakfast the day after....was very much enjoyed by all!!!


  1. well it certainly looks like you all had a fabulous time indeed, the cake looks amazing... and yes the cliche is so true... in the blink of an eye!

  2. i Need to know what was in the box. Lovely box by the way. can't believe how grown up she is.

  3. Thanks girls, it was an amazing party and seems forever ago.

    Jodii - the stunning box was a gift from my sister Bianca's godmother - it contained lots of treasures, so for her glory box (lol which is what the box is) Towels, candles and stunning glass dishes for the candles to sit in all in an amazing shade of purple, then there was also jewellery and personal items was amazing. She was very spoilt.
