Last week, a group of friends and I celebrated our dearest Jacqui’s 30th birthday, with a croquet picnic at the Silverlake Reservoir Meadows.
I can safely say that I have not enjoyed such a perfect afternoon in a long, long time. The picnic spread was beautiful, and pink, pink, pink.
We indulged in childhood favorites, including a treasure hunt:
And a particularly rousing game of duck duck goose (made even more so by the champagne):
We snacked on delicious and picture perfect picnic foods:
And rocked a round of croquet (also made even more fun by champagne, it turns out):
We paused our strenuous athletic activities, and dug into the strawberry cupcakes-in-a-jar I made for the birthday girl. She had spotted this post on my blog months ago, and loved the idea:
And then it was back to our mallets. If I recall, there were talks of unifying a croquet league, but that may have just been the sun:
All in all, it was the perfect summer day, spent with a delicious group of people. Happy Birthday, Jacqui!
