How was your weekend? I trust it was relaxing and enjoyable? For us we had a busy Saturday and a relaxing Sunday. On Saturday we had a birthday party for our twin girls who turned 18 last week. They celebrated with their school friends in their own unique ways, but given that this is the last year they will be home for their birthday at least for the next four years, as they are heading off to college, I wanted to have a festive celebration at home too the old-fashioned way – with cakes and candles, family and close friends. You know what I mean? Like when we used to get together at home with family and friends to hang out, chat and laugh and have cake together. That’s the kind of celebration I wanted – I think maybe more for myself than for the kids?
Honestly though, there is something warm and heartfelt about an old-fashioned birthday party at home. The only thing missing at the twins birthday party were balloons – otherwise it was a stellar birthday celebration with lots of smiles, lots of laughter and cake!! Here is a look at the twins 18th birthday celebration with family and close friends.

Rani was having a very very very hard time blowing out her candles 😀😀😗😗🎂
One candle just wouldn’t go out! Rani must have tried 10 times to blow that one out 😀🎂. But in actuality that one candle kept coming back on 😀
Finally get to eat some cake 🍰
Good times were had by all 💙❤️💕
Freesias for friends

A very special 18th birthday celebration with family and close friends 💕🎂
Wishing you all a fabulous week!
