Ahhhhh, the Food

Can you say chocolate? 


Mint chocolate, dark chocolate, light cocoa chocolate, white chocolate, pink chocolate, peanut butter and chocolate, coconut and chocolate, butterscotch and chocolate, strawberries in chocolate, shortbread cookies in chocolate, vanilla and oreo cookie sticks dipped in chocolate and sprinkles, rice krispies and chocolate, caramel and chocolate, and candy kiss chocolate lined the table at my mother's birthday party.







The other items that weren't chocolate were pink spritz cookies, cream puffs, white and strawberry cake, and Norwegian celebration cake, (more on this later).

The best thing about all the chocolate is that it is highly caloric all the calories were taken out. Everything was yummy!

Still more food, favors, and decorations to come. On Monday, Part 3!

Have a beautiful weekend,
Ele

Gracious, Ele! I NEVER would have pegged you as one who TOTURES! LOL! (I'm ALLERGIC to chocolate. Sigh.) But those yumm-o cookies? NOT allergic to THOSE! Seriously, that is one beautiful table! Your mom must have been ecstatic! EVERYONE loves to be celebrated, and YOU know how to DO celebrations to the max! I'll be back to see upcoming photos! I HOPE the birthday girl will be featured in one. Will she? Pretty please?
