A "Sparkly Affair"

I'm crazy about Fourth of July Sparklers.

We have a stash of them at Sweet Butter that we adorn celebratory cakes, cupcakes & petit fours with.

When I was a kid, sparklers were my favorite firework because they reminded me of a magic wand. But they never lasted long enough. So much in life is like that…not lasting long enough. That is why I believe in (sorry for the cliche) living in the moment; and if those moments happen to be a birthday, then add as many sparklers as you can, right?

We recently catered a 60th birthday party where all the guests toasted the birthday girl with sparklers in lieu of champagne. It was nothing short of magical, and a moment the party guests will not forget, I am certain.

The Birthday Girl requested a Cheesecake….and vintage 50″s menu.

Laurie picked her favorite childhood dishes, which just so happened to be some of Sweet Butter’s specialities!

And what’s a party without a party hat? These were handmade and purchased by the hostess of the party. Each one was different. They were the most beautiful party hats I have ever seen.

Catering parties is like putting on a show, except each one plays for just one night. Which is just fine with me. I love variety.

Life is short. Celebrate with sparklers whenever possible…and eat cake along the way.
