celebrating

November starts with two birthdays in our family. First out is Elias, who turned 13 this year - our first teenager!


I love tĥis guy. He is so smart and funny.
And a good elder brother to his younger siblings.


Three days later it's my turn.
I seriously had no intentions to celebrate this year. But than on my birthday I suddently thought it would be neat to have some girl friends over for a cozy evening. I texted some of my pals around here - and nearly all of them showed up to nights later!


I wanted to give the table a rustic and natural feel, with a little dose of glamour. ;)


I was serving an homemade minestrone soup, so I actually did not need so much space for serving on the table. I lay two large pieces of thriftwood on the table and placed my collection of silver candle sticks inbetween. 


 Stars cut out of birch bark, mismatched glasses and mismatched chairs.

Minutes before the guests arrive...




It was a cozy evening.
