Thursday Parties: Sushi & Tea

Last week I had a mini soiree with some of my girlfriends to celebrate my 30th birthday!

We had some sushi, tea and mimosas all things that make me truly happy!

I ordered sushi from my local favorite sushi place ;) and also picked up a bunch of delicious finger foods like gourmet cheeses, hummus and veggie cups...made a veggie friendly station and a mini bar station...had some games going and all in all had a great time catching up and laughing it all with some great friends...

 Desserts: Sushi sugar cookies, Sushi Marshmallow pops and Coconut Macaroons!
