It’s the last day in our birthday celebration for my dear friend, Ali! We started off the week with the perfect party playlist from Jennifer of Classic Play, followed by a delicious appetizer (Caramelized Pear & Brie Crostini!), a signature birthday cocktail (the Black Cherry Tail!), and sparkly gold place cards from MJ of Pars Caeli. And to end the celebration in true birthday party fashion, Amy from This Heart of Mine brings us a gorgeous, gold-topped champagne birthday cake today!

Many thanks to Tiny Prints, our sponsor for the week. We partnered with them to bring you these fun recipes and projects.

S’mores Truffles for Minted’s blog, Julep | Now that the weather has cooled off a little, it’s time to make s’mores galore! These tasty truffles have all of the elements of s’mores–gooey toasted marshmallows, creamy milk chocolate, and sweet graham crackers.
