This weekend I had the privilege of putting together the 1st. birthday party of my friend`s twins. This family has a special place in my heart, and I couldn`t be happier to decorate their special day. The theme couldn`t be more perfect: Dinosaurs. The dad was turning 40 and he is a dinosaur aficionado.
I put my new cricut machine (that I`m absolutely in love with) to work and made countless dinosaurs for the backdrop. A dear friend stitched them (one by one) together and it turned out super cute!
As any true Brazilian party, we had many kinds of brigadeiros. Brigadeiro is a common Brazilian delicacy, and according to wikipedia, it was created in 1940. The traditional brigadeiro is made from condensed milk, cocoa powder, butter and chocolate sprinkles to cover the outside layer. The cocoa powder can be replaced by coconut, almonds, peanuts, pistachio, and, our new favorite, Brazil nuts!
The cake from Tilu`s Bakery was impressively beautiful and even more delicious!!
As party favors we had Brigadeiro Verrines and hand-made goodie bags.
Everybody had a DINO-MITE time!!
See you soon,
