Cupcakes and Champagne

Last year, my friend got married right after her birthday. This year, she celebrated her birthday and anniversary while expecting her first child. While this is all terribly exciting, pregnancy does tend dampen any plans for toasts, if you’re being all responsible and stuff. This meant a slight change of plans for the cupcakes and champagne birthday treat I previously planned.

There is a delightful cupcakery in town. This brown label has come to symbolize happiness in a box.

The day of the wedding, I ran a couple of last-minute errands. I swung by a drive-thru liquor store and asked for a bottle of champagne, “just whatever.” He sold me this. It was $4. We drank it while getting ready. It’s a wonder we didn’t get sick.

I made the bottle into a lamp with a simple kit

I got labels from the cupcakery to cover the lamp shade.

Cupcakes and Champagne lamp! It's not quite the same as the real thing, but it lasts longer.
