This Tuscan themed 40th birthday party was simply fabulous.  Our hostess wanted to have a venue with an outdoor firepit and we found a great venue but unfortunately we had to move the party indoors due to the weather.  We used rosemary, lemons, lanterns and tuscan inspired decor to bring this theme to life. 27 Our dessert table was perfectly suited for the simplistic taste of our hostess. 26 First, we will take a closer look at the favors.  Mini bottles of olive oil not only fit the theme well but were also very practical gifts for guests to use. 24 We custom made these favor tags and used a yellow butcher twine for the presentation.  Rustic chic! 25 And here is a closer look of the contents for the favors, olive oil with fresh rosemary from our garden.  Perfect! 23Chocolate Chip Cannoli
19The centerpiece for the dessert table was the birthday cake.  The theme is captured in the cake – rosemary and lemon- simple and elegant. 21   We also added various decor to the food table at the restaurant for the Tuscan theme.   17 Our table centerpieces looked beautiful with shades of yellow and green.  16 We are in love with these flowers!  So beautiful! 15   14   12 Since this was an evening party, we wanted to use lots of candles.  Here you will see a floating candle and in the cylinder vase we included rosemary and lemons. 13 A simple way to add floral arrangements to the table is by using a bottle vase.  One large bloom is all you need with some additional greenery.  We also used some wood trivets to add a rustic element. 11   10   9 Here is a closer look at the rosemary and lemon in the cylinder vase – it was the perfect 6   3 The weather cleared by the end of the evening so we were able to move the event outdoors next to the fire pit for a s’mores dessert.  Here are some pictures of the outdoor area.  We added lanterns as well as some wine bottles with candles to enhance the atmosphere. 29   28
