And just like that, it’s officially my birthday week! B said the opening ceremony will begin tonight. Tune in to Channel 3 at 7:00pm sharp. You’ll probably end up with something like Modern Family, but hey, a party is a party. I’ll drink a fancy-pants margarita in honor of you watching Modern Family, in honor of my birthday.
In order to really get this party started, I am going to grace you with “All Things Birthday” this week. Don’t worry, I’ll open all your cards and gifts on Friday (the official birthday), no need to get a head start. I have all day, I took off work.
Let’s start this party with half of the most critical thing: Cake (the other half, clearly, is alcohol). You can’t have cake without…
A DIY Cake Stand. There are tons of these on Pinterest, so I am not that unique. I mean, I am unique, but my cake stand is not. The only difference may be my detailed photo steps. I wanted to give you all the info, since a teacher is only as successful as her worst student (at least that’s what my teachers always told me).
I bought the two items pictured above, a martini glass and a tin plate at Dollar Tree. Just a heads up, the tin plate was actually by the cookie sheets, not the plates. You’ll need a glue gun, and a spray paint color of your choice.
Hot glue all around the rim of the martini glass, and add it to the upside down plate. Then hot glue around the outside rim again (trying to keep a steady stream of glue). It doesn’t have to be perfect, as most people will not be looking up, from underneath. Unless your party is serving shots of tequila. Then you may have a few people looking up from the floor. Party on!
Four more days! Can I eat the cupcakes now?
